New Tadano Mantis for Scott Macon

30. March 2017 | Comments (0)

US based Scott-Macon Equipment has taken delivery of a new 80 tonne Tadano Mantis GTC-800 telescopic boom crawler crane, the unit was the crane on show at the Conexpo launch earlier this month.

The new GTC-800 features a five section 43 metre main boom plus 17.6 metre bi-fold swingaway extension. The crane automatically switches between load charts for the slope it is working on, wiht charts for up to four degrees off level. The Tadano AML-C rated capacity indicator incorporates what it calls Opti-Width, that allows asymmetric track positioning for working in reduced width configurations, and HelloNet Telematics. Power comes from a Cummins Tier 4f diesel.

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.”

Scott-Macon Equipment was founded in 1973 to sell, rent and service a wide variety of lifting equipment, including cranes, aerial lifts and telehandlers. It has grown into one of the leading independent equipment companies in the Southern United States.
