Tadano GT-750EL makes debut in Mexico

The first Tadano GT-750EL truck crane recently arrived in Mexico after being sold to Grupo Vazquez del Sur. Through a Tadano commercial partner in Mexico, Arrendo SERV, Grupo Vazquez del Sur purchased a Tadano GT-750EL, the largest among a new family of truck cranes offered from Tadano that also includes the GT-600EL and the GT-300EL.
The purchase marked the first-ever Tadano GT-750EL to be sold in Mexico following the model’s worldwide launch at bauma 2019. Grupo Vazquez del Sur needed a truck crane that could comfortably carry its crew long distances between worksites across southeastern Mexico and arrive with the crane ready to do the job. The GT-750EL met these demands with its all-in-one design that requires no additional auxiliary vehicles to transport counterweights or assist with assembly, the company said. Its two-person seating configuration accommodates both operator and assistant with ample space, and the cab’s internal storage compartments keep tools contained and organized.
With a maximum lifting capacity of 75 tons and a total length of just 47 feet, the GT-750EL brings power, compactness, and efficiency to tight working conditions. The main boom has two modes of operation, enabling the crane to maximize its lifting capacity at short radiuses with a stronger boom and maximize lifting capacities at high radiuses with a lighter boom. The GT-750EL features a five-section boom that can extend up to 154 feet and a two-stage, three-fix position jib of 30 feet and 47 feet with a maximum tip height of 201 feet. The GT-750EL’s under slung jib can be installed in an area no greater than the crane’s width for easy setup in confined spaces.
Built with safety, simplicity and reliability in mind, the GT-750EL utilizes a precise hydromechanical pilot control joystick system for smooth crane motions. The crane also comes equipped with Tadano’s Smart Chart system, which allows the crane to increase its lifting capacity up to 44.3 percent when operating over the main outrigger beam corners.
“The GT-750EL brings a reliable and maneuverable lifting solution to the 75-80 ton class with a control system that’s smooth and intuitive,” said Marcos Rodriguez of Grupo Vazquez del Sur. ”This crane is perfectly suited for fast transport and setup, which is essential when moving from jobsite to jobsite each day.”
