TADANO GTC series Teleboom Crawlers available for sale to european customers

Lauf a. d. Pegnitz, September 2018. Tadano is beginning sales of two GTC series telescopic boom crawler cranes for the European Market, including the model GTC-800, 80 tonne, and GTC-600, 60 tonne, telescopic boom crawler cranes.

The GTC-800 and GTC-600 telescopic boom crawler cranes follow the concept to design and build a telescopic boom crawler crane that meets the requirements of the growing core markets of power transmission, bridge and civil, and foundation construction while expanding the broader appeal of the crane toward lift crane based markets. The design projects were managed by Tadano Mantis Corporation and included collaboration with Tadano, Ltd. in developing the purpose designed, Tadano built telescopic boom and the integration of Tadano winches, jib, hydraulic cylinders, AML-C Rated Capacity Indicator and Hello Net telematics. Both cranes are CE marked and available for global sales.

The GTC-800 has a full power, 5-section 11.5 m – 43.0 m hydraulic boom and the GTC-600 has a 4-section 11.5 m – 36.0 m full power hydraulic boom. Both are designed to perform exceptionally well for lift work, while also being capable of out-of-level, pick-and-carry, and foundation work. The round boom is manufactured specifically for the Tadano telescopic boom crawler cranes by Tadano Japan. The main boom of the GTC-800 is complimented with a 10.1m / 17.7m bi-fold jib that offsets at 3.5°, 25°, and 45°. The maximum lifting height with the jib erected is 60.4m. An optional 2.5m heavy lift jib with a maximum capacity of 21.4t that offsets at 3.5° and 30° is also available. Both cranes have an optional boom mounted auger system that can be mounted to the boom base section or to the second stage of the boom for variable radius drilling. The auger system can utilize auger drives with a maximum digging torque of up to 27,116 Nm.

Both cranes are powered by a Cummins Euromot stage IV, QSB6.7 diesel engine rated 231 kW @ 2200 rpm. Engine throttle control is by either auto-idle control, adaptive throttle control, or by foot pedal control. The swing system is controlled by a separate closed loop hydrostatic transmission for superior swing performance and the maximum swing speed is 2.0 rpm. The travel system features 2-speed track drives for the GTC-800, maximum speeds of 3.4 km/h and a maximum unladen gradability of 78% and for the GTC-600 maximum speeds of 3.8 km/h and a maximum unladen gradability of 78%. The standard track shoe for the GTC-800 is an 800mm wide 3-bar semi-grouser and an optional 800 mm wide steel flat shoe is also available. The standard track shoe for the GTC-600 is a 900mm wide 3-bar semi-grouser and optional 800 mm wide shoes are also available.

The new OPTI-WIDTH track positioning system is featured on the GTC-800 and GTC-600. OPTI-WIDTH allows both symmetrical and asymmetrical track positions during reduced track width operation to provide optimum lifting performance at any track width. Track width is continuously monitored by the machine and the data is provided to the AML-C. The optimal track width operating load chart is chosen by the AML-C based on each side track position so that the capacity of the crane is optimized through 360 degrees. Zoned load charts are provided based on asymmetrical track position setup and slewing soft-stop safety function is used when capacity is limited at the edge of an operating zone. OPTI-WIDTH asymmetric track position setups can improve lifting capacities by as much as 50% over symmetrical, reduced track width configurations. OPTI-WIDTH is the ideal solution for cranes working in congested job sites at less than full track width. The crane undercarriage has sufficient hydraulic track extend power to extend and retract the tracks on demand, and the tracks do not require pinning in position once set to the operating width.

Tadano Telescopic boom crawler cranes include several features that differentiate them from other telescopic boom crawler cranes on the market:

- Automatic switching out-of-level load charts. The crane slope sensor provides continual slope measurement, and the AML-C system automatically sets the load chart based on the slope of the ground up to 1.5°, 2.5°, or 4°. The GTC Series cranes feature a base lifting chart that allows up to 1.5° slope compared to the base charts of many competitors that only allow for up to 0.3° slope. The “level” ground load charts feature Tadano’s market leading 1.5° slope allowance.

- OPTI-WIDTH allows both symmetrical and asymmetrical track positions during reduced track width operation to provide OPTIMUM lifting performance at any track WIDTH. Track width is continuously monitored by the machine and the data is provided to the AML-C. The optimal track width operating load chart is chosen by the AML-C based on each side track position. OPTI-WIDTH asymmetric track position setups can improve lifting capacities by as much as 50% over symmetrical, reduced track width configurations. OPTI-WIDTH is the ideal solution for cranes working in congested job sites at less than full track width.
