New Tadano GT-1200XL-2 for Veteran US crane hire

Davis Crane Service has been serving the hoistingneeds of Texas contractors and businesses for over 60 years. In fact, President Dennis Davis has been in the business for over 50 years and is a stalwart among crane owners around the Lonestar State. Davis has just purchased the first GT-1200XL-2 Truck Crane (5-section 167.3′ main boom, 33.1 ft / 58.1 ft bi‐fold jib, max speed 65 mph) through Tadano’s Texas distributor, Scott Macon Equipment. Tadano introduced its new 120-ton Truck Crane model at ConExpo earlier this year, and Davis looks forward to adding this powerful machine toits well-established taxi crane service.


Wes Dowd, Director of Operations & Equipment at Davis Crane, describes the exciting new addition to his fleet, “We wanted the first GT-1200XL-2 because it fits our taxi crane business, the 110-120-ton market is a big one for us and we trust Tadano cranes. Our driver-operator drove the new truck crane here and said it was just like a Cadillac. And the Tadano's we have in the fleet currently have been just bulletproof. They are just great machines, and you hear that from everybody. With the Tadano reputation and Scott Macon's great service, we’re not really worried about any issues with a new crane. Whatever they can do to help us, they're always there to help.”
