The Tadano GTC-800 is an 88-ton telescopic boom crawler crane that will be introduced to the global marketplace at Bauma 2016.

Tadano Mantis will introduce the new model GTC‐800, an 88-ton telescopic boom crawler crane. The GTC‐800 is CE marked and will be available for global sales, including Europe, in late 2016 or early 2017. It is the second 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, according to Ed Hisrich, vice president, Tadano Mantis.

The GTC‐800 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 and Hello Net telematics. The full power, 5‐section 37-foot 8-inch to 141 foot 1 inch hydraulic boom is designed to perform well for lift work, while also being capable of out‐of‐level, pick‐and‐carry, and foundation work. The main boom is complimented with a 33.1 to 58-foot bi‐fold jib. The maximum lifting height with the jib erected is 198 feet.

Operating load charts for the GTC‐800 are available for up to 4 degrees slope with automatic out of level load chart switching. The “level” ground load charts feature Tadano Mantis’ market leading 1.5 degree slope allowance. The GTC‐800 has track width sensing and three-track width operating zones; the crane 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 operating width. The GTC‐800 is powered by a Cummins Euromot stage IV, US EPA Tier 4f, QSB6.7 diesel engine rated 231 kW (310 hp) @2200 rpm.
