The GTC-600 is the third of the new design GTC-Series telescopic boom crawler cranes which follows the concept to design and build a telescopic boom crawler crane that meets the requirements of the growing Tadano Mantis 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 GTC-600 design project was managed by Tadano Mantis 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.
The full power, 4-section 37.7ft – 118.1ft (11.5 m – 36.0 m) hydraulic boom is 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 Mantis telescopic boom crawler cranes by Tadano Japan. The main boom is complimented with a 33.1ft / 58.1ft (10.1m / 17.7m) bi-fold jib that offsets at 3.5°, 25°, and 45°. The maximum tip height with the jib erected is 182.1 ft (55.5m). An optional 8.2 ft (2.5m) heavy lift jib with a maximum capacity of 22.4 US ton (20.3t) that offsets at 3.5° and 30° is also available.
The crane has an operating weight of 140,086 lbs (63,387 kg) and ships in two truckloads. The main load weighs less than 97,000 lbs and shipping width is under 11 ft wide.
The GTC-600 utilizes the full capabilities of the Tadano AML-C Rated Capacity Indicator. Operating load charts for the GTC-600 are available for up to 4° slope with automatic out of level load chart switching. The “level” ground load charts feature Tadano Mantis’ market leading 1.5° slope allowance.
