Tadano Debuts ATF-100-4.1 and ATF-120-5.1 in North American Market
26 March 2020
Every new Tadano is an even better Tadano. That is the claim – lived up to with the two new all-terrain cranes ATF-100-4.1 and ATF-120-5.1, by combining tried and tested features with innovations. Operating companies, operation planners, and operators can still trust in the economical 2-engine concept, the efficient crane control AML-F, the innovative Lift Adjuster, and the unique jib HTLJ – telescopable even under load, one of the options available only from Tadano. And they can take pleasure in new qualities as well. Among them, in the case of the ATF-100-4.1, a lifting radius that exceeds that of comparable 110-t cranes by 26.2 ft. High axle load reserves and the performance of the 165-t class in the case of the ATF-120-5.1. All models are available since the end of 2019.
Strong Lifting Capacity and Large Radius
The centrepiece of both cranes, which share the same superstructure, is the new 196.85-ft main boom. With it, the ATF-100-4.1 achieves lifting capacities that are way ahead in the competitive environment – by up to 100 % for individual radiuses. The ATF-120-5.1, in turn, is consistently the most powerful crane of its class for radiuses between 62.5 ft and 183,73 ft. A further quality: the high load-bearing capacity on the road. With a 13.23-t axle load, 10.14 t counterweight plus additional equipment may be taken along in addition to the 58.7 ft jib with integrated heavy-duty jib.
Optimized for Specific Jobs
The agile and compact ATF-100-4.1 scores particularly highly on narrow roads and confined construction sites. With the versatile ATF-120-5.1, you can do something that is not possible with any other five-axle crane – travel on public roads with an axle load below 11.02 t or actually 52.91 t total weight. And, even with 26.46 t counterweight both cranes remain lean at 9.02 ft. Furthermore, the ATF-100-4.1 with full 33.51 t ballast still has a tail swing radius of only 12.46 ft. With a maximum 39.02 t counterweight, the ATF-120-5.1 still has a tail swing radius of only 13.12 tft.
Modular Equipment, Easy Handling
As both models have the same superstructure, the jibs (12.39 tft to 104.65 tft) and counterweights can be used on either of the two cranes. Thanks to a hydraulic folding device, a single person can fold the jib transported next to the main boom and pin it via a crank handle from the ground.
Superb Utility Even in Detail
In practice, it is often the details that simplify routine handling for users. Thus, for example, the unusually large luffing angle of 84.7° allows particularly small working radiuses. With a load radius of only 29.52 ft at 196.85 ft boom length, both cranes can be positioned very close to the object on confined construction sites. While on the road, the new ZF-TraXon gearbox with its hill start aid ensures high comfort and low wear of the clutch.
