Austin Crane Service has taken delivery of its first ATF 90G-4, at Tadano America’s headquarters in Houston, Texas. Since its arrival in Leander, Texas, the ATF 90G-4 has been used to build and set tanks and was most recently utilised in downtown Austin working inside street barricades with narrow lane closures.
Austin Crane owner and president Larry Taylor said that Tadano’s good reputation was one reason the company decided to purchase the ATF 90G-4. On using the crane since taking delivery, Taylor said, “The manufacturer put a lot of thought into the design of this crane. Our operators love working with it.”
The ATF 90G-4 features a compact design that Austin Crane Service has found to be a big benefit. According to Taylor, the “hydraulic luffer and the turning radius are a huge plus when getting in and out of and working on confined job sites.” Taylor also appreciates the machine’s simple design and on-screen diagnostics that “speed up the process and lessen downtime.”
With a lift capacity of 110USt and boom length of up to 168ft, the ATF 90G-4 features a tiltable cockpit and two oil coolers to keep hydraulic temperatures low. The machine’s automatic moment limiter (AML-C) offers enhanced functionality and the ability to pre-set special job configurations.
