Capel Crane Hire of Western Australia has added a Tadano GT600-EX truck crane, the first of its kind in Australia, to its fleet.

Capel has a fleet of 15 cranes, ranging from a 15 tonne capacity Franna to a 350 tonne Liebherr. The Capel fleet already includes Tadanos, including a 45 tonne capacity TG450-E truck crane and a TR250-M3 rough terrain. The rough roads in Western Australia helped the decision to add a further Tadano truck crane. The new machine will do a range of jobs, including farm work, construction, water treatment and mining projects.

CTE Mechanical Services, Tadano's WA pre-delivery centre in Perth, delivered the new crane.
