Get to Know 4 Safety Features of Tadano Cargo Crane

19 March 2024

United Tractors, Jakarta – Cargo crane is one of the types of heavy equipment whose operation requires special skills. Not only that, for a more guaranteed level of safety, a cargo crane unit must have a high security system.

Tadano’s cargo cranes have 4 safety features that are beneficial to maintain operator safety, improve work efficiency, and minimize the risk of unit damage. What are the safety features of Tadano’s cargo cranes? Let’s discuss them in this article.

4 Safety Features of Tadano Cargo Crane
When buying a cargo crane, it’s not just the body model that you need to pay attention to, but also the safety of the cargo crane.

Tadano’s cargo crane variants come with 4 advanced safety features that can provide overload warnings, control the boom, protect the truck frame from excessive pressure, and maintain crane stability during operation. Here is a complete summary of the safety features of Tadano cargo cranes.

  1. Automatic Moment Limiter (AML)

The weight of the material lifted using the cargo crane will affect the performance of the unit. So, it is important for the operator to know the maximum limit of the load that can be lifted by the cargo crane. If the load lifted exceeds the capacity of the cargo crane (overload), the cargo crane unit will be more prone to damage.

Overload can threaten the safety of the operator and the security of the unit. So, how can operators prevent cargo crane overload? Besides paying attention to the maximum load that can be lifted by the cargo crane, there is an AML feature that will help the operator to prevent the crane from overloading.

Automatic Moment Limiter or AML is a feature that you can find on Tadano cargo cranes. The main function of this feature is to increase the safety level of the cargo crane, as AML provides visual and audio warnings when the crane is overloaded.

When the cargo crane is overloaded, the AML feature will work by first giving a warning on the monitor screen. Then, AML will automatically turn on the slow stop function to avoid load shock. After that, the operator can immediately reduce the load and continue working.

Whether or not your Tadano cargo crane is overloaded can be seen through the limit warning lamp and the display on the panel. There are 3 colors of lights that light up according to the weight of the load being lifted. Here are the details of the indicator lights found on the AML panel.

  • Green light: Indicates a load capacity of 0-89%
  • Yellow light: Indicates a load capacity of 90-99%
  • Red light: Indicates a load capacity of 100%

Not only do the indicator lights provide information about the weight of the load being lifted, but there is also a radio remote system that allows the operator to operate the cargo crane more efficiently using remote control without the help of others in the work area.

  1. Automatic Slewing Lock (ASL)

Next, there is the Automatic Slewing Lock (ASL) feature. The main function of this feature is to prevent the boom from swinging or rotating by itself while the unit is being operated.

Automatic Slewing Lock is a safety feature of Tadano cargo cranes that works by mechanically locking the boom at the base of the slewing post, so that the boom will not rotate while the cargo crane is traveling. With this ASL feature, the operation of the cargo crane will be safer and more optimized.

  1. Equalizer Crane Support

Equalizer Crane Support is another safety feature that you can find on Tadano cargo cranes. Equalizer crane support serves to protect the truck frame from strong pressure that can reduce the durability of the cargo crane.

The equalizer crane support will evenly distribute the load on the crane mounted on the truck chassis, so there will be no excessive stress concentration at one point.

  1. Parabox Type Outrigger

The last feature is the parabox type outrigger. This feature is a safety feature that prevents the truck from rolling over during the load lifting process. The weight of the lifted load will greatly affect the durability of the truck. So, strong outriggers are needed that can withstand both the load and the truck body.

Tadano’s cargo cranes are equipped with parabox type outriggers that are able to maintain the stability of the truck during operation despite lifting maximum weight. Parabox type outriggers can be widened up to 5.2 meters, so the truck body will be more stable and the truck will not easily roll over. With such sophisticated outriggers, operators will feel more comfortable and safety when operating the unit.

These are some of the safety features of Tadano cargo cranes. If you want to have a quality cargo crane with a high level of safety, Tadano has several cargo crane variants that you can choose from.

First, there is the Tadano TM-ZT820H Series cargo crane that can lift up to 8 tons. This type is a construction, mining, and oil & gas machine that is equipped with “Hook-In” so that the crane hook can be better maintained when traveling. This variant is also equipped with the safety features mentioned above such as equalizer crane support and Automatic Slewing Lock (ASL).

Secondly, the TM-ZX1500 has a maximum capacity of 15 tons and is equipped with AML and remote control that can make project work more efficient. Not only that, the TM-ZX1500 is also equipped with a Jack Interlock system that will automatically disable the crane when the outrigger jack has not touched the ground perfectly.

Third, Tadano also has a cargo crane type TM-ZT1000 that is capable of lifting a maximum load of 10 tons. This type is equipped with a crane equalizer that will prevent the truck chassis frame from experiencing excessive pressure and damage.

Finally, the TM-ZE300 Series is suitable for construction activities. Similar to the TM-ZT820H, this variant also has a compact Hook-In and slewing post so that work performance can always be maximized.

One important thing that you cannot ignore when choosing a cargo crane for your project needs is the safety level of the cargo crane itself. Now, you don’t have to worry about finding a cargo crane with a good level of safety, because Tadano cargo cranes are equipped with 4 main safety features that can prevent work accidents.

There are 4 main types of Tadano cargo cranes that can be added to your wish list, namely TM-ZT820H Series, TM-ZX1500, TM-ZT1000, and TM-ZE300. If you are having trouble making a choice, don’t worry!
