Dubai based lifting and heavy haulage company Al Faris has taken delivery of the 80 tonne Tadano GR-800EX. The new crane features a five section 47.1 metre boom to which a 10.1 to 17.7 metre bi-fold swingaway extension can be added for a maximum tip height of 67 metres, while offering up to 45 degrees of offset. The cranes were sold and delivered by Tadano’s distributor for the UAE - United Al Saqer Heavy Equipment.
