The company has also made some changes to the product line. The 5-ton TM-ZR500XL has been replaced by the next generation TM-ZE505XL. While still rated at 5 tons, the load chart has improved across the board, with a 25 percent increase at the 30-foot radius, said Turner. “In addition, the model still offers a hook stow feature, which allows the hook block to self-stow against the tip of the boom, rather than having to be tied down," he said. All other changes to the model were minor style updates.
“Tadano continues to focus on providing top quality boom trucks in the 20-ton and under classes for service and support applications in a variety of industries,” he added.
