Nov. 1, 2023 - The Myshak Group Myshak is the first company in Canada to buy Tadano’s new GT-1200XL-2 truck crane.
The new “built for North America” model, unveiled at the ConExpo 2023 tradeshow in March, features 120-USt lifting capacity; a five-section, 167.3’ telescopic boom; a 33.1’-58.1’ bi-fold jib, and 65-mph top highway speed.
By providing valuable input on axle weights, dollies, and other key requirements, Myshak Crane & Rigging (MCR) was a key partner in developing this impressive new taxi crane for the Canadian market.
“We are thrilled to have Tadano back in the Canadian truck crane market,” said a Myshak representative. “The GT-1200XL-2 fits into a great space in our fleet, and we believe our customers will see this product as an ideal taxi crane. Tadano is known for well-designed and high-performance cranes, and we are excited to put this truck crane to work."
Tadano America regional business manager, Justin Andrews, added, “We are excited that the first GT-1200XL-2 in Canada will go to Myshak. The GT-1200XL-2 is an outstanding machine, and it will be the perfect taxi crane for Myshak's customers.”
The new Tadano truck cranes for the Canadian and US markets have long booms, yet can easily get permitting for road travel, thanks to low axle weights and narrow travel widths.
Tadano says the GT-1200XL-2 delivers superior utilization, high return on investment, and low cost of ownership.
Built with many of the same field-proven, reliable components as Tadano’s GR Series rough terrain cranes, both the GT-1200XL-2 and the 80-USt GT-800XL-2 deliver the high quality and durability Tadano customers are used to.
"The Myshak family and Tadano have enjoyed a strong and successful partnership for many years,” said Ken Butz, Tadano America’s vice president of sales. “They have proudly represented the Tadano brand in western Canada by building an extensive fleet of Tadano cranes, including GR rough-terrain, AC all-terrain, CC lattice-boom crawler, and GTC telescopic-boom crawler cranes.”
