Tadano GR-900EX-4 rough terrain crane debuts in Philippines

Tadano Asia Pte Ltd and its exclusive Philippine distributor Monark Equipment Corporation have announced the delivery of the first Tadano GR-900EX-4 rough terrain crane in the Philippines. The machine was acquired by Hammer Head Builders and Development Corporation.

The GR-900EX-4’s first assignment with Hammer Head is already taking place on a major project for Taiheiyo Cement, where they will perform both demolition and expansion work at one of Taiheiyo’s plants in San Fernando, Cebu province.

“The Tadano brand has good quality and durability,” said Manny Javines, managing director and president of Hammer Head Builders. He also noted that acquiring the GR-900EX-4 allowed the company to promote its expanded project capacity while reducing the bid costs.

Speaking of Tadano’s local distributor, Mr Javines said, “Monark Equipment is very cooperative, prompt in their sales, and easy to call on services and queries.”

The 90-ton-capacity Tadano GR-900EX-4 features an asymmetrical outrigger extension width control, an integrated counterweight, sequential and non-sequential telescoping modes, and the popular Hello-Net system. With a maximum lifting height of 47.1 m (64.4 m with the bi-fold jib) and maximum load radius of 42 m (52 m with the bi-fold jib), the crane is ideal for Hammer Head’s multi-faceted project with Taiheiyo as well as future customer projects.

Hammer Head Builders and Development Corporation undertakes foundation, civil, structural, electrical and mechanical contracting work, including demolition and dismantling. Accredited as a Quadruple-A contractor by the Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board (PCAB), the company has numerous locations throughout the country including Antipolo, Rizal and an office in Makati, Metro Manila.
