Tadano appoints All Crane for NZ

3. June 2011 | Comments (0)

Tadano Oceania has formally appointed All crane Sales & Services as its Distributor for New Zealand

The distributor agreement confirms All Crane of Northcote, Auckland as exclusive distributor for Tadano spare parts, product support and sales for New Zealand following several years of unofficial product support by All Crane principal Mike Morris.

As part of the plan All Crane will relocate to a new facility within the new Auckland “Super City” and extend its parts and product support coverage for Tadano customers as well as All Crane’s other product lines, which include Cormach loader cranes, boom trucks and marine cranes.

The distribution agreement includes the entire Tadano mobile crane line – truck mounts, Rough Terrains, Mantis Crawlers and Tadano-Faun All Terrains.

Morris has been involved with the Tadano product since 1970, initially as a technician, when he says he had to “install the first Tadano, a TS-130, on a second hand 8x4 English oil burning lorry, which was specified and set up to legally travel on class II roads in New Zealand (a 13 tonne lift capacity crane able to move 24/7without permit!!!!) How the world has progressed!”

In the 1980’s Morris was Demag, Gottwald and Tadano product manager for Hydraulic Machinery Company and was responsible for managing to get the 50 tonne TG500E road legal with the boom over the front and all its equipment on board. A major step forward at the time when 50 tonne cranes were required to use a trailing boom to move on the open road. Something now only required on 300 tonne class machines.
