While the number of brand new product launches has been a little thin on the ground for the crane market, there are plenty of smaller developments and product improvement announcements while aerial lift and telehandler announcements have been more plentiful.
Crane developments include the new Raimondi LR330 luffing jib crane, and a new 50 tonne Rough Terrain from Locatelli, while for many this is the first chance to see the new 60 tonne Tadano ATF 60G -3 All Terrain.
Tadano is also focusing on its new French operation with a full team now on board and in place.
