Tadano harmonises telescopic boom crawler crane model names17 June 2022
Aligned product naming for Tadano’s GTC range.
After harmonising the global nomenclature of its all terrain cranes (AC) and lattice boom crawler cranes (CC) in autumn 2021, Tadano continues its OneTadano strategy by announcing a global harmonisation of the nomenclature of its telescopic boom crawler cranes (GTC).
Tadano will begin to harmonise all its GTC crane model names worldwide by adapting to the nomenclature used in the American market. Accordingly model names in the US will not change.
The following model nomenclature updates for products sold outside the American market will take place later this year.
- The Tadano GTC-350EX will change to GTC-350
- The Tadano GTC-500EX will change to GTC-550
- The Tadano GTC-600EX will change to GTC-700
- The Tadano GTC-800EX will change to GTC-900
- The Tadano GTC-1200EX will change to GTC-1300
- The Tadano GTC-1800EX will change to GTC-2000 (immediately)
Tadano said it has changed the nomenclature of the Tadano GTC 1800EX telescopic boom crawler crane, which was launched in November 2020, immediately due to its popularity and to better reflect its true lifting capabilities.
“Customers kept telling us that their experience in the field showed that in several configurations, the GTC 1800EX had a performance potential that far exceeded its class,” product manager Vincent Stenger reports. “Therefore, we are renaming the model to the GTC-2000 for all markets to better align with the crane’s lifting capacities.”
In line with this, for existing GTC-1800EX models in the field, Tadano will offer customers a kit to upgrade these cranes to the GTC-2000. The field kit comes complete with upgraded software that provides also new load charts for 0- and 180-degree operation. It also includes new crane documentation, manuals, decals and nameplate.
For all ongoing orders, Tadano will personally notify its customers of the name change.
Tadano plans to exhibit the GTC-2000 telescopic boom crawler crane at Bauma 2022 this October on stand number FS 1205.
