Louisiana equipment firm buys 1,000th Tadano GR-1000XL rough-terrain crane

Scott Equipment of Monroe, Louisiana, recently took delivery of a monumental Tadano GR-1000XL rough-terrain crane in Houston.

This crane was the 1000th unit of this popular model series produced at the Shido manufacturing plant in Japan. Despite early production delays due to the March 2011 Japan earthquake, this milestone was reached in just under four years.

“Scott Equipment is a major player in the sales and rental of rough-terrain cranes in the Gulf Coast market and an impact partner for Tadano," Yo Kakinuma, president and chief operating officer of Tadano America, said. “Taking delivery of this crane underscores our long-standing working relationship and commitment to Scott Equipment."

“We are very honored to accept the 1000th GR1000XL crane," Scott Equipment President Scott Cummins said. “Tadano cranes have brought and continue to bring significant value to our company and our customers. This crane will be transported to Baytown, Texas, where it will be put to work very quickly."
