Tadano, one of the largest Japan-based manufacturers of cranes and aerial work platforms, has successfully delivered its rough-terrain crane - GR-800EX - to Al Faris, a specialist in heavy lifting solutions with a big fleet of cranes and heavy equipment.
Confrming the delivery, Tadano said it was done through its UAE distributor United Al Saqer Heavy Equipment.
The Tadano GR-800EX rough terrain crane boasts several key features that meets all the requirements of its industrial customers including excellent performance characteristics, cutting-edge technology, high fuel efficiency, and the ability to flexibly work with various outrigger spreads. 
"The GR-800EX has all this and more, which is why it meets our needs perfectly," explained Al Faris Executive Director Kieve Pinto, while pointing out the Smart Chart system and the crane’s two-stage swing-around jib as specific examples. 
Added to that is its high reliability and the associated low maintenance costs for GR-800EX, which is something that the team at Al Faris finds invaluable, he stated. 
"Thanks to these exceptional characteristics, our GR-800EX will quite literally pay for itself very quickly," he added.
Pinto said the company has already decided on the crane’s future range of uses and will be using it for a variety of infrastructure projects.
The Al Faris Group has a long history tying it to the crane manufacturer. It has bought 149 cranes from Tadano since it was founded, with 29 of them being purchased in the last few years alone. 
"In addition to the exceptional products, we really value the way our work with Tadano is characterized by trust," added Pinto.-TradeArabia News Service
