Telescopic rough terrain crane | 


Virtual Reality Simulation Training

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." This unit serves as a robust operator training machine for telescoping RTs. 

ITIVR worked with the Tadano team to bring the GR-XL Rough Terrain Series to the ITIVR Simulation Library with this 100-ton model capable of 154 feet of boom length. As with all ITIVR crane models, the operator is immersed in an identical 3D replica of the actual Tadano cab.
