RJT Crane Chooses A Tadano

19 March 2008

New mobile crane rental business RJT Crane and Plant Hire in Australia has started its fleet with a Tadano GT-550E truck crane.

Dealer James Equipment supplied the crane to head up the new crane rental venture. Based in Winnellie in the Northern Territory, RJT Crane and Plant hire was formed out of longstanding local business SK Formwork to serve local industries.

SK Formwork has been going for more than 40 years. Director Nick Saroukos said his experience of Tadano cranes made him look to a familiar brand to begin his new crane rental business.

“I have been around mobile and tower cranes for a long time,” said Nick. “The Tadano brand is a name I am comfortable with and my previous experience with Tadano cranes helped me in my decision to purchase my new Tadano GT-550E. When people are happy with a brand, they stick to it.”

The 55 tonne capacity GT-550E has a 42 m five section main boom and two-stage extension up to 14.6 m. Its four axle 257 kW Nissan diesel carrier delivers a top speed of 83 km/h and has an 8 x 4 x 4 drive/steer configuration.
