Tadano cranes can now be bought from Bigge Crane and Rigging Co in the US states of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado.
Bigge’s partnership with Tadano has been one of growth and collaboration. Since 2013, Bigge has held the largest Tadano rental fleet in America. Bigge has more than 100 pieces of Tadano equipment in its nationwide fleet, serving a wide range of industries.
In October Tadano and Bigge celebrated the delivery of the first Tadano GR-1200XL rough terrain crane in the United States at its Houston, Texas branch. The GR-1200XL is a 120 US-ton capacity rough terrain crane.
“The crane is a classic Tadano design,” said Brian Noga, vice president, Gulf Coast, Bigge Crane and Rigging. ”It maintains a long boom and jib combination without losing ease of transport, and also maintains maximum lifting performance while working directly over its outriggers in an asymmetrical set up.”
Six GR-1200XL rough terrains were ordered during 2017’s ConExpo Con/Agg trade show in Las Vegas, USA, for Bigge’s rental fleet. The remaining cranes will be delivered by mid-summer 2018.
“In the Gulf Coast, Bigge is involved in various energy based projects,” said Tommy Reed, Houston regional sales manager, Bigge Crane and Rigging. ”The building of windmills in Melvin, Texas, is just one of many where we are helping a partner by supplying the best in class cranes for their job.”
From January 2018 Bigge will provide six cranes to work on the new wind energy project being built by Renewable Energy Systems (RES). A crawler crane and five rough terrains will be put to work around the clock until completion. The two new GR-1200XLs that Bigge received in October will be part of the active fleet in this project. In addition, the other three rough terrain cranes will be Tadano GR-1000XLs, making it an all Tadano rough terrain fleet.
”The Bigge team is excited to have the opportunity to break in the new Tadano rough terrain cranes, since the Tadano brand has proven to deliver reliable and safe equipment for our kinds of jobs,” said Reed.
