Tadano's 450 ton all terrain ATF 400G-6 makes its first lift in Florida
Tadano America Corporation Interview with Bob Steiner, President & Justin Steiner Sales Manager of Barcelona Equipment, Inc., Clearwater, Florida.
FROM THE PORT TO THE JOB
Tadano’s First U.S. Customer Delivery of the ATF 400G-6 All Terrain Crane
Representatives from Barcelona Equipment and Tadano Cranes met at the port in Brunswick, GA to take delivery of the new Tadano ATF 400G-6 all terrain crane. The ATF 400G-6 was driven from Brunswick, Georgia to Barcelona Equipment’s office located in Clearwater, Florida. Upon delivery, a customer requested use of the crane and within days of the crane’s arrival to the Barcelona yard it was sent to its first job.
Barcelona’s customer, Hammer Haag Steel needed the crane to load equipment on a barge that was heading to Louisiana. This was a very complex project, which utilized over 90% of the cranes’ capacity. The lift was 171,000 lbs. at a 46-foot radius. The crane was equipped with maximum counterweights and the total weight of the load was 350,000 lbs. The ATF 400G-6 performed impeccably.
Following the successful completion of the job, Constantin Haag, President of Hammer Haag Steel, remarked, “Barcelona is the finest crane company we have dealt with in the industry and Tadano’s new crane followed with the tradition of perfect performance and safety Barcelona always brings to the job. This Tadano all-terrain is the best in the Barcelona fleet.”

Bob Steiner could not say enough about the professionalism and service training of the Tadano service technicians. He believes that this was the smoothest and most professional team he has ever encountered in all of his 46 years in the crane industry. He stated the Tadano service culture is immeasurable in this day and age...
