The 60 to 80 tonne All Terrain crane class forms the core of many crane rental fleets. The three and four axle cranes are designed with a close eye on roadability and flexible use. Will North reports.
Cranes in the 60 to 80 tonne capacity range are like opinions: everyone has one. Andrew Snow, business development manager at Tadano UK, says: “It’s the bread and butter market, the 60 tonners, it is where the volume of machine sales are. All crane rental customers run that size of crane, but not all run 200 tonners. It's a very, very important market for us.”
But while almost every rental fleet around the world will have a fair few cranes of this size in their fleets, not all are All Terrains. In fact, the market for this size of All Terrain is largely concentrated in Europe.
