Gandhi Cranes

Impressed by ATF 220G-5’s lifting capacity, boom length, compact axle design, safety and reliability, Gandhi Cranes buys two units as an addition to their fleet.

Bangalore-based Gandhi Cranes, a prominent name in the crane renting business, is catering to both public and private companies engaged in infrastructure projects such as Precast buildings, Railway Bridges, Metro rail, Steel plants, Refineries, Power plants, Windmills, etc. It is deputing its cranes to project sites on a daily / monthly basis and as a contract package (lumpsum rental) to its clients.

Mr. Srinivas Gandhi, Director at Gandhi Cranes
Says Mr. Srinivas Gandhi, Director at Gandhi Cranes, “Given the strong demand for lifting equipment, we decided to enlarge our fleet with Tadano cranes, which are known for their superior technology, user-friendliness, ease of operation, safety, and efficiency. Moreover, they provide good after-sales service. It is important that our cranes help clients to complete their projects efficiently and as per the deadlines, so we wanted cranes such as Tadano’s that we can rely on.”

According to him, the compact 5-axle design of the ATF 220G is suited for projects that have space constraints. The other important unique selling proposition of this crane, he says, is its lift adjuster, a one-of-its-kind control system that enhances the safety at the construction sites.

Gandhi Cranes has purchased two brand new Tadano ATF 220G-5, which have deployed at Hindustan Unilever in Pondicherry. “The cranes are getting good feedback from the operators. Though it’s too early to predict the return on investment, we’re expecting good results,” says Mr. Gandhi.

Mr. Shigenobu Yamazaki, MD, Tadano India
Emphasizing the crane’s safety feature, Mr. Shigenobu Yamazaki, MD, Tadano India, informs, “Safety is the prime consideration for us. There are many situations when operators are not able to see the load they are lifting, and here, safety becomes a major concern. The lift adjuster in ATF 220G-5 allows operators to monitor the potential movement of heavy loads. When activated, the control system senses the boom deflection and adjusts the hoist cylinder to compensate for any radius changes. All that the operators have to do is simply activate the lift adjuster with the press of a button and then correct the working radius automatically.”

Mr. Yamazaki informs that ATF 220G-5 has an optional feature of Hydraulic Telescopic Luffing Jib (HTLJ). The crane can be equipped optionally with upto 21-m long hydraulically telescopic and tilt-able jib, which permits uncomplicated lifting of loads beyond building edges and into upwardly restricted building structures, which would not be possible with rigid jibs. This means that the HTLJ made by Tadano works like an additional fully-hydraulic main boom. Another advantage is the HTLJ’s permissible assembly within (approx.) 30 minutes – even in very confined spaces - provided it is not extended.

Gandhi Cranes has plans to further enlarge its fleet as it is getting enquiries for higher capacity cranes from the South zone on the back of the government’s thrust on infrastructure development.
