In the shadow of the iconic Liver Building in the UK city of Liverpool, local crane rental company John Sutch used its Tadano ATF 80-4 all terrain crane to relocate statues – including this one of King George V – to make way for a new waterway linking Albert Dock and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

The ATF 80-4 has been one of Tadano Faun's most successful cranes, thanks not just to its lifting performance but also to the fact that it is the only crane in its class to have two diesel engines – 315 kW in the carrier for driving and a 130 kW unit in the upper for crane operation. Two engines is usual for larger cranes but not in this class, according to Tadano. Advantages include lower fuel consumption and reduced running costs.
