Aussie rental yard adds another Tadano

20 March 2008

Australia: Family-run rental house Perna Engineering in Perth has added another Tadano truck crane to its fleet. The new 55 ton capacity GT-550E from Tadano dealer James Equipment will work alongside an 18-year-old Tadano.

“Our older Tadano is still going strong after 18 years and its reliability really helped us form a decision on our new purchase,” said Daniel Perna of Perna Engineering. “We had originally planned to replace the old 30 ton Tadano with a newer equivalent.

However, with our new 55 ton Tadano onboard, we have a greater lifting capacity covering a range of lifting applications.”

The GT-550E has a 42 meter (138 feet) boom and two-stage, 14.6 meter (48 feet) jib. It is available in left hand drive and the operator cab has joystick controls and air conditioning. Top speed is 83 km/h (51 mph) from the 257 kW Nissan diesel and eight speed gearbox.
