Since the acquisition of Demag by Tadano, there were many changes in the organization in terms of company structure, as well as combining their two different brands of mobile crane and crawler cranes. In fact, the efforts were being made right now by Tadano to standardize the brand under “Tadano” and they are in the transition of model name changes as well.
The naming system might be slightly confusing for the time being and hence I thought it would be good that I can actually list down the cranes that are undergoing the name changes for better reference in the future.
