May 9, 2018 - Rossco Crane & Rigging, Minot, N.D., has bought two new Tadano ATF 220G-5 all-terrain cranes from RTL Equipment.  

These are the second and third Tadano cranes Rossco has purchased. The company already owns a 2009 Tadano ATF 220G-5. Rossco’s experience with that first Tadano all-terrain crane led them to buy two more.

“The 2009 ATF 220G-5 has been a great machine. It often runs 24 hours a day and has played a huge part in building Rossco as a new crane company,” says Ross Kovach, Rossco Crane & Rigging. “Another deciding factor was how well the machine charts.” 

About 95% of the work done by Rossco’s ATF 220G-5 involves the oil and gas industry. The four main areas are construction, drilling, completion (coil tubing and wire line), and production (midstream assets and new infrastructure).

“We are pleased to be a part of Rossco’s continuing relationship with Tadano and look forward to supporting both Rossco and the product,” said Ben Stegge, sales manager for RTL Equipment. “Tadano manufactures the highest quality and most cost-effective cranes to own and operate in the industry today.”
