Scott-Macon buys four Tadano telecrawlers24 April 2019
Scott-Macon Equipment purchased four new Tadano Mantis telescopic boom crawler cranes at Bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany.
The Scott-Macon Equipment fleet will be bolstered by two new 88USt (80t) GTC-800s, a 66USt GTC-600, and a 35USt GTC-350.
The GTC-800 features a five-section, 141.1ft main boom, plus a 58.1ft bi-fold jib. The GTC-600 has a four-section, 118.1ft main boom and 58.1ft bi-fold jib, while the GTC-350 has an 89.3ft boom and 42ft extendable jib. GTC Series cranes have automatic switching load charts for operation at up to 4° out-of-level; the level ground charts for Tadano Mantis machines are for slopes to 1.5°. The GTC cranes also feature the Tadano AML-C rated capacity indicator with Opti-Width (Tadano Mantis’ system allowing asymmetric track positioning in reduced width configurations), as well as HelloNet Telematics.
Scott-Macon managing director Alexander Scott said: “We are excited to be making this multiple Tadano Mantis crane purchase. We have purchased a number of the GTC-800s in the recent past and have been very happy with this newly designed GTC version of the Tadano Mantis crane. We are pleased to see this new design extended to the other cranes in the Mantis lineup and are looking forward to putting these additional cranes into our marketplace.”
