The Tadano GR550XL series are hydraulic rough terrain cranes with a 35-ton lifting capacity. The​“GR” stands for Global Rough Terrain in Tadano’s GR product line. Tadano conducts research and considers customer needs when developing newer models; as a result, their machines are exceptional and more intuitive.

All GR550XL models come standard with 2 hoists, the main hoist and an auxiliary hoist. With each new model of the series, Tadano improves components such as cabin ergonomics, engine performance, fuel consumption, Load Moment Indicators readings, and safety features for operators. The GR550XL series are equipped with HELLO-NET, a telematics-based internet website that provides customers with machinery management information.

The GR550XL‑2 drum capacity is slightly more than the other two models but has a less permissible line pull. 

Noticeable changes in the newer GR550XL‑3 model are new designs for the boom and crane structure, making them stronger with innovative design and technology. The GR550XL‑3 also comes with an assist cylinder to help mount and stow the jib. The hydraulic cylinders are used resulting in increased work efficiency and safety

An Eco-Mode function is featured on all GR550XL models, the GR550XL‑3 has a Positive Control System integrated which keeps the quantity of hydraulic pump discharge to a minimum, reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 20%.
