The GTC-800 features a five-section 43 metre main boom, plus a 17.7 metre bi-fold swingaway extension. The crane automatically switches load charts from the level ground charts for slopes of up to 1.5 degrees to charts for working on steeper slopes of up four degrees out of level. The GTC-800 also features the Tadano AML-C rated capacity indicator with Opti-Width system, allowing asymmetric track positioning in confined areas, HelloNet Telematics and a Cummins Tier 4f engine.
The 15010 has a four section 34 metre main boom , plus a 15.2 metre bi-fold swingaway extension. It also has Tadanos AML-C rated capacity indicator, and Cummins Tier 4f diesel, and is approved for use in New York City. Both models include Tadano Mantis hydrostatic slewing system. This controls for smoother control in either a free swing mode, or a non-free slew mode.
Empire founders Luke and Paul Lonergan said: Having seen an increase in rental utilisation and quoting activity with the Tadano Mantis product, we saw the need to position ourselves to better meet the customers requirements in the Northeast. The new GTC-800's market leading boom length in the under 100 ton class, along with the cutting edge features such as Opyi-Width and superior out-of-level charts, make the GTC-800 a definite winner in comparison to our competitors.
