The Myshak Group has just purchased the first GT-1200XL-2 truck crane in Canada, and it is to be operated by Myshak Crane & Rigging (MCR). Myshak helped with the design of this ideal taxi crane for the Canadian market.

The GT-1200XL-2 features a 5-section 167.3-foot main boom, 33.1-foot/ 58.1-foot bi‐fold jib and a max speed of 105 km/h. 

“We are thrilled to have Tadano back in the Canadian truck crane market,” the company said. “The GT-1200XL-2 fits into a great space in our fleet, and we believe our customers will see this product as an ideal taxi crane. Tadano is known for well-designed and high-performance cranes, and we are excited to put this truck crane to work.”

The new Tadano truck cranes for the Canadian and U.S. markets can also get special permitting for transport, as they feature low axle weights, narrow transport width and long boom designs. 

“The Myshak family and Tadano have enjoyed a strong and successful partnership for many years,” said Ken Butz, vice president of sales, Tadano America. “They have proudly represented the Tadano brand in western Canada by building an extensive fleet of Tadano cranes including GR rough-terrain, AC all-terrain, CC lattice boom crawler cranes and GTC telescopic boom crawler cranes.”
