Quebec-based Guay specializes in operated and non-operated crane rentals throughout the region, and they have grown their rental fleet with the purchase of 19 Tadano rough terrain cranes. The package includes machines ranging from the 55-ton class up to 160-ton RTs.

“We wanted to renew the RTs in our rental fleet and now have access to better technology, like the Smart Chart on the Tadano,” said Guillaume Gagnon, executive vice president, Guay. “Our decision was made on the reliability of the Tadano RTs. We work in remote area winter conditions, so we wanted to have a rough terrain that was reliable. Also, what we like is all the rough terrain models have the same operational pattern (lots of parts in common). So for our technicians and crane operators, they are easier to operate and to maintain -which increases our productivity for our customers.”

Justin Andrews, Regional Business Manager for Tadano America, believes these rough terrain cranes are a great fit for Guay’s fleet and client needs. 

“In Canada, we’re really spread out geographically,” added Bill Finkle, president and owner, Cropac Equipment, Tadano’s Canadian distributor. “We have a lot of remote job sites, and it gives us a lot of confidence putting a Tadano into one of those sites where we don’t have access to technicians and parts. Overall the reliability is the best that we’ve experienced in our rental fleet.”
