Crane Model Spotlight - Tadano GR-1000XL
The Tadano GR-1000XL is one of two initial crane models that will be available in the new ITI Virtual Reality (VR) Mobile Crane Simulator. The most successful model from Tadano's GR-XL Rough Terrain Series and standard in many North American crane rental fleets, the GR-1000XL, embodies the manufacturer's goal, "to provide the safest, most innovative and reliable cranes in the industry that are able to handle all aspects of your job." Informally referred to as the "new generation of cranes," Tadano's GR-XL series rough terrain cranes offer 15, 35, 55, 75, 100, and 160 ton options.

Under the HELLO-NET System, Tadano supports crane management via the Internet, providing information about operational status, position and maintenance. HELLO-NET Owner Sites enable sharing of machine data between Tadano and the machine owners, for advanced customer support. Information available includes; work history, machine position data, and maintenance information.
- Asymmetrical Outrigger Set-up
When operating a crane with the asymmetrical outriggers extended, the AML-C detects the extension width of all the crane's outriggers (front, rear, left, and right) to measure maximum work capacity in each area.
- Reducing Fuel Consumption
Tadano aims to reduce fuel consumption with two newly developed technologies; the Eco Mode system and the Positive Control system. The Eco Mode system reduces fuel consumption by 40% when the crane is being operated, and the Positive Control system reduces fuel consumption by 60% when the crane is in standby.
- Self-Removable Counterweight
When using the auxiliary winch, dismounted counterweights can be lifted and moved for transport, and then remounted for operation at a work site without a helper. Weight of removable counterweight is 22,000 lbs.
The Tadano GR-1000XL is one of two initial crane models that will be available in the new ITI Virtual Reality (VR) Mobile Crane Simulator along with the Link-Belt 218 HSL Lattice Boom Crawler. ITI VR Simulations focuses on three key areas to ensure the best simulator training experience available.
