Dealers see new Tadano boom truck

24 April 2008

Tadano America is rolling out a new boom truck, the TM20110, ACT was first to report last month. With 110 feet of boom, the 20 ton capacity crane will be the largest boom truck in the Tadano line. The company planned to show off the new boom truck at its second annual dealer meeting April 20-21 in Houston.

According to a company spokesperson the TM20110 has a new pentagonal boom design and uses the TM1882 platform. It has a fully proportional five-section boom reaching tip heights of 120 feet. The outrigger system is out and down with multi-span settings, allow the operator to set the main frame outriggers in the straight down position and still have the ability to handle a load. The advantage to this is for road and bridge work, where only the traffic lane in which the truck sits needs to be blocked, leaving other lanes open to traffic.

This will be the longest boom crane in the 20 ton boom truck class, the company said. The boom will have 110 feet of horizontal reach without the need to swing and pin a jib. The crane weighs approximately 15,300 pounds and has the option for radio remote control.
