Birdon Group in Australia has upgraded its fleet with a refurbished 25 tonne Tadano rough terrain crane. The company will use the crane for marine construction projects at its commercial facility on the Hastings River, Port Macquarie NSW.

Supplied by crane specialist James Equipment, the Tadano TR-250M-5, which replaces a 20 tonne model, is used for jobs ranging from boat construction and maintenance to handling dredging equipment. “The 25 tonne Tadano is based at our head office facility providing support to the Engineering and Marine divisions' lifting requirements on vessel repairs and refit projects, along with new constructions within the Engineering facility,” explained Jamie Bruce, Birdon Group general manager. “Our crane is relied upon for a wide range of lifting requirements in often restricted working sites and platforms.

It is the ideal size for hauling equipment in confined spaces and the extra lifting capacity has proven useful in truck transport.”
