This product is generally operated in the mining and oil and gas sectors. In the mining sector, this unit has proven its superiority in maintenance operations, tools assembly and other mining activities on the site. As for the oil and gas industry, the Tadano Rough Terrain Crane GR-500EX functions as operational support, used in the transportation of pipes, maintenance, and for other supporting purposes.

Outstanding Features of the Tadano Rough Terrain Crane GR-500EX

The Tadano Rough Terrain Crane GR-500EX’s high degree of flexibility allows for effective operations on narrow terrains both on and off road with a maximum capacity of 50 tons due to its 3 steering modes, namely: 2-wheel front, 4-wheel coordinated, and 4-wheel crab.

By enhancing the GR-500EX’s traveling ability, Tadano has effected the crane’s steady movement at an average speed of up to 50 km/h. Equipped with Tadano’s latest ‘moment limiter’ system, called AML-C, the vehicle is able to perform in utter safety at all times. Even when the crane operates in asymmetrical elongated outrigger conditions, AML-C will 2 automatically detect the width of each outrigger at the front, back, right, and left sides to maximize the ‘work value’ or lifting capability in each area independently.

The Tadano Rough Terrain Crane GR-500EX has a 4-section round-shaped boom with a maximum length of 34.7 meters. Its quality is undisputed due to its high tensile steel material resulting in a lighter-weight and extremely sturdy boom.
