Tadano has taken the wraps off a new truck crane se­ries – the GT-750EL, GT-600EL and GT300EL – de­signed for safety, dura­bil­ity, high lift­ing per­for­mance and the abil­ity to drive on rough roads and at high speeds on high­ways.

The GT-300EL has a 30-tonne max lift ca­pac­ity and a strong and light high-ten­sile steel rounded 34m boom, while the GT-600EL mea­sures in at 60 tonnes/43m and the GT-750EL at 75 tonnes/47m. Load radii are 32m, 34m and 40m, re­spec­tively.

Ex­tra reach is pro­vided by a two-stage (9m/14.3m, 8.5m/14m) un­der-slung jib, which Tadano says makes in­stal­la­tion in nar­row spa­ces sim­ple and ex­tends lift­ing heights to 48m, 57.3m and 61.2m, and load radii to 40m, 44m and 48m.

“The new GT-750EL, GT-600EL, and GT-300EL have new car­ri­ers that pro­vide driv­abil­ity on rough road and high-speed travel on high­ways,” Tadano says.

“They are equipped with leaf sus­pen­sions in front- and rub­ber-mounted sus­pen­sions, newly de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Hen­drick­son, in the rear.”

The com­pany says it per­formed a num­ber of tests for high-speed travel and dura­bil­ity on rough roads and found the cranes – which have a new cab and are equipped with cruise con­trol and au­tomatic trans­mis­sion – to be com­fort­able to drive.

The GT-750EL, GT-600EL, and GT-300EL come equipped with Tadano’s fuel mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem, an Eco-Mode to re­duce fuel con­sump­tion when the crane is be­ing op­er­ated, and Pos­i­tive Con­trol – a sys­tem which re­duces fuel con­sump­tion when the crane is on standby.

The machines come with Tadano HELLO-NET telem­at­ics, and the GT-600EL and GT-750EL also have a new Smart Chart sys­tem.
