Bigge Crane and Rigging, one of the largest Tadano fleet owners with over 600 cranes, has ordered a large quantity of rough-terrain, all-terrain and telescopic boom crawler cranes at bauma 2022 in Germany. Some highlights of the new Tadano additions for Bigge are larger AT’s like the AC 8.500-1, 7.450-1 and AC 6.300-1, the GR-1300XL-4 and the GTC-1600 and GTC-2000. Other new additions include the GR-1300XL-4 from the Tadano Rough Terrain line, as well as longer-reach Teleboom Crawlers like the GTC-2000 and GTC-1600.
James Land, Teleboom Crawler Sales Director at Tadano America, says Bigge has been able to fill a gap in their rental fleet with the versatile 150-200 ton TBCs, “The GTCs compete quite nicely and even outperform some larger competitors’ cranes, especially when considering the out-of-level charts. And a crane you can count on is a Bigge key as well. I believe similarities and shared components with the proven GR line helped move the needle for Bigge’s recent GTC purchases, as they always demand a reliable product.”
As Bigge continues to play a vital role in American construction and lifting, they are always looking cranes that are best in class, reliable and cost effective. “Bigge is always working to build and maintain the Perfect Fleet of cranes to serve our customers’ job site demands,” says Joe Nelms, Vice President of Bigge. “Tadano has been a Trusted Partner in this effort by producing equipment that is highly reliable, easy to operate, and has a low cost to maintain. We appreciate Tadano’s collaborative approach and open lines of communication throughout the development, production, and post-sale process. “
