UK rental company J&M Crane & Transport has taken delivery of a 100 tonne Tadano ATF-100-4.1 All Terrain crane.
The new four axle ATF 100-4.1 has a 60 metre seven section main boom and was ordered with an 31.4 metre boom extension and 30.4 tonnes of counterweight. Replacing a 90 tonne ATF 90 G-4 in its fleet, the new crane is among the first to be delivered in the UK after Sangwin Plant took delivery of the first in November.
J&M Crane Hire owner, James Lawrence, said: “When we saw the current Tadano ATF-100-4.1 for the first time at bauma in Munich last year, the new features including the longer boom length and increased counterweight were impressive, and suited our future requirements. In 2011, we purchased a Tadano ATF 90, this was then followed by the ATF 130 and ATF 70’s in recent years. All of them have proven great investments, and have been backed up with Tadano’s customer service.”
Tadano UK sales manager, Grant Currivan, added: “We would like to thank J&M for its continued loyalty to Tadano, we are sure that its new ATF-100-4.1 will be a positive addition to their increasing fleet, we look forward to continuing our excellent business relationship with them going forward.”
Operating from Gravesend, Kent, J&M has been in business for over 60 years and employs 25. It runs a fleet of All Terrain cranes ranging from 35 to 500 tonne as well as a fleet of transport equipment.
