The delivery of the ATF-120-5.1 was a milestone for both Tadano and Queensland-based customer, Xtreme Engineering. Being the first crane of this model to be delivered in Australia for Tadano, as well as the first brand new crane that Xtreme Engineering has ever put into operation, marks a special occasion for both companies.
“The fact that we decided on the ATF-120-5.1 was no mere chance, as we already have a Tadano TR250E and a GT550E in our fleet and are extremely happy with the reliability of the two cranes. That’s why we trust the brand, not to mention Tadano’s exceptional customer service and product support,” reports Managing Director Scott Harrington, who then goes on to explain why the Tadano ATF-120-5.1 was the only crane that he seriously considered: “Even with a long main boom of 60 meters, the crane is light enough to travel with the hook block installed. From our perspective, that makes it an extraordinary machine when it comes to roadworthiness.”
On top of this, Xtreme Engineering needed the crane for an urgent project, and the ATF-120‑5.1 was already in stock in Queensland. “The Tadano team made sure that we got the crane within a matter of days, and with our logo and our company colors to boot,” reports Scott Harrington, who has nothing but praise for the Tadano service team and Sales Manager, Jason Perry.
Scott Harrington further explains how the new crane will benefit their business in the short and long term: “The ATF-120-5.1 is a cost saver to us because we don’t have to bring in a subcontractor to get the job done. This means that we’ll be able to get new major customers and tap into new kinds of business, especially since we have the only ATF-120-5.1 in Australia and are in a position to offer exclusive solutions. This crane makes us more attractive to the bigger clients because we can do the whole job.”
And his confidence is justified, as the job orders for the ATF-120-5.1 are very promising. “We have already used the crane for a wharf demolition project which is nearly finished, and we already have more jobs lined up for the future, including replacing pipes at an alumina refinery and putting together a port control centre for ship loading operations,” he said.
