The GTC-800 features a five-section, 141.1ft main boom, plus a 58.1ft bi-fold jib. The crane has automatic switching load charts for operation at up to 4° out-of-level; the level ground charts for Tadano Mantis are for slopes to 1.5°.

The GTC-800 has the Tadano AML-C rated capacity indicator with OPTI-WIDTH (Tadano Mantis’ system allowing asymmetric track positioning in reduced width configurations), HelloNet telematics and a Cummins 310hp QSB6.7 Tier 4f engine.

Scott-Macon managing director Alexander Scott said: “We are excited to be purchasing this newly-designed GTC version of the Mantis crane. We have had great experience with our GTC-1200 and are pleased the new design has been carried into the 800 series. We are particularly impressed by the increased boom length as well as the other improvements that Tadano has incorporated over the predecessor to the GTC-800.”
