Product description

This Compact 8-Axle Packs Power and Performance

The AC 8.500-1 packs incredible flexibility and power into the most compact crane in its capacity class, with the shortest carrier length for any 8-axle crane at 17.1m and optimized transport weight and dimensions for all attachments. With a luffing jib, the AC 8.500-1 reaches a maximum system length of 145.8m. Short rigging times and smart, thoughtful designs boost productivity and safety. The patented Sideways Superlift (SSL) ensures enormous lifting capacity enhancements while the star-type outrigger design provides additional stability. The IC-1 Plus control system allows it to always take advantage of the maximum available lifting capacity when the outriggers are extended in an asymmetrical configuration.


Tadano’s legendary reputation for quality and innovation is why we lead the lifting industry. Superior engineering, design, and components followed up with top-notch service means a greater rate of return and the lowest owning and operating cost of any crane on the market.
