◊ Safe Lifting
The crane is equipped with Tadano’s Automatic
Moment Limited which gives both an audible and
visual warning when approaching a critical position.
Should the operator try to continue in putting the
crane in to a potentially unsafe status, the system
will automatically cut the crane’s motions.
The system also has a limit function on the working
range (load radius and/or boom angle and/or tip height
and/or slewing range).
The in-cab LCD display shows the operator all
the information he needs to see what the crane
lifting status is at all times
◊ More Reliable at Lower Cost
By using a more conventional,
proven Mitsubishi 6M60-
TL (Euromot 2 level)
engine, Tadano an-
from reduced main-
ment parts are more readily available
at lower cost.
◊ Environmentally Conscious Crane
With increasing awareness of fuel costs, the new RT
cranes will feature Tadano’s fuel monitoring system
and an ‘Eco-mode’ to
keep fuel consumption as
low as possible. We have
equipped this model with
fuel monitoring system,
and “Eco-mode” which
reduces fuel consumption
when the crane is being
◊ Installation of
Tadano has equipped this rough terrain
crane with ‘HELLO-NET’ which allows cus-
tomer’s to monitor crane status at any time via
computers or mobile devices.
The customer can monitor crane activ-
ity, work history, ma-
chine position data,
and maintenance in-
formation. The abil-
ity to track the ma-
chine allows for early
identification of a ser-
vice need as well as management of the crane’s time.
The upgraded D6528 Mixer/Pump from Blastcrete
gives gypsum flooring contractors a versatile and
easy-to-use mixer/pump with high capacity and low
Contractors can use the D6528 Mixer/Pump to install
gypsum underlayments for sound and fire proofing floors,
as well as up to 1/2-inch (12 mm) aggregate concrete mixes
for breezeways and patios.
The hydraulic mixer blends up to 9 ft³ (0,.25 m³) of
material in just 45 seconds and keeps it in suspension as
the machine dumps material into the unit’s 12 ft³ (0.34 m³)
hopper with hydraulic agitation.
Operators can use a skid steer loader and Blastcrete’s
optional calibrated bucket to load as much as 7.6 ft³ (0.215
m³) of material into the mixer at a time.
Blastcrete designed the exclusive squeeze pump with
33% fewer wear parts for reduced maintenance. The pump
operates with up to 450 psi for consistent delivery of up to
12 yd³ (9.17 m³) of material per hour.
“We have been very impressed with what we can do
with the unit,” said Dewayne Olsen, owner of Western
Slope Gypsum in Rifle, Colorado. “We can pump
gypsum up to five stories high and as far as 400 feet
The squeeze pump does not require lubrication
to keep it cool and is not damaged if the hopper
The D6528 Mixer/Pump comes equipped with a
29 hp/21.6 kW , water-cooled diesel engine or an
optional 40 hp/29.83 kW Kohler gasoline engine.
The engine is positioned away from the mixer and
receiving hopper to prevent thermal transfer that
can cause material to set prematurely.
