1st GT-1200XL-2 in Canada

Canadian sales, heavy lift and crane rental company The Myshak Group has taken delivery of the first 110 tonne Tadano GT-1200XL-2 truck crane to arrive in Canada.

The GT-1200XL-2 was unveiled at Conexpo earlier this year and features a five section 51 metre pinned boom and can be equipped with a 10.3 to 17.9 metre bi-fold swingaway extension. Self-rigging counterweight options range from 3.5 to 25 tonnes. The four axle carrier has an overall travel width of 2.59 metres with axle width and spacings optimised for weight and road formulas. A boom dolly trailer is available for areas with the most stringent road regulations, while top speed is 65 mph.

Justin Andrews of Tadano said: “We are very 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 customer base.” Myshak added: We are thrilled to have Tadano back in the Canadian truck crane market. The GT-1200XL-2 fits into a great space in our fleet and we are excited to put this truck crane to work.” Based in Alberta, family owned and managed Myshak was established in 1996 by Mike Myshak and son Jim, today they run a fleet which includes All Terrain cranes to 400 tonnes, crawlers to 600 tonnes as well as Rough Terrains, carry deck cranes, boom trucks and spider cranes from six locations in Alberta and British Columbia.
