HOUSTON, TX—Portuguese Structural Steel in Newark, New Jersey has taken delivery of their first Tadano crane. The 176-ton capacity all terrain will be erecting steel for industrial and commercial projects. Portuguese Structural Steel fabricates and erects structural steel, joist, deck, and steel stairs, among other projects.
Tony Cabral, general manager of Portuguese Structural Steel, was excited to add the used machine to their fleet. “One of the things that will give us an advantage over our competition is we will no longer have to rent a crane of this size. The Tadano ATF 160G-5 is here on site and ready to go,” he said.
“The other advantage we have with this crane is the excellent service that Tadano provides. Great service means less down time and more profit for our business,” added Cabral. Tadano America sells not only new but used cranes directly, including accepting trades, and provides direct manufacturer service to the machines. This used 2005 ATF 160G-5 was sold and will be supported by Tadano.
The ATF 160G-5 is a five-axle 176-ton capacity all terrain crane with a 196-foot main boom and 122-foot buildable jib. The superstructure frame is connected to the carrier on a ball bearing system that enables 360-degree continuous rotation. The crane, equipped with a six-cylinder Mercedes Benz water-cooled diesel engine, has a self-diagnostic electronic load moment device and working area limitation for lifting height, load radius, boom angle and swing range.
