Tadano Mantis Model GTC-1200 Telecrawler Approved for Use in NYC
Tadano Mantis Corp.’s 130-ton GTC-1200 telescopic-boom crawler crane has received approval to operate in New York City with its full load chart.
The GTC-1200 is the fifth Tadano Mantis telescopic boom crawler crane approved for operation in New York City. The other approved models are the 30-ton Model 6010, 70-ton Model 14010, the 77-ton Model 15010, and the 100-ton Model 20010. Tadano Mantis is represented in New York by its Syracuse-based dealer, Empire Crane Company.
The GTC-1200 features a 155-ft., five-section, full-power boom and a 12.5- / 33.5- / 59.1-ft. standard jib package. It can pick and carry its full capacity through 360°, and it has a 52% travel gradeability. The crane automatically switches out-of-level load charts for up to a 4° slope. With two-speed travel drives, it has a maximum travel speed of 1.6 mph.
Powered by a 350-hp Cummins QSL9 Tier 4 Final diesel engine, the GTC-1200 includes the Tadano AML-C rated capacity indicator, Tadano Hello-Net telematics, winch, rear view, and right side video monitoring, and three remote-controlled work lights.
The strong load charts and robust construction of the GTC-1200 have proven the crane to be effective in lift applications as well in heavy-duty applications like vibratory hammer work. The self-erecting GTC-1200 is easy to assemble and disassemble for transport, and has several patented features that aid in the fast mobilization of the crane.
In addition to the standard features of the machine, the following optional equipment is available: 28,000-lb line pull controlled free fall winch, steel boom head sheaves, two-person, 750-lb. capacity work platform, and auxiliary controls and hydraulic circuits for pile-driving lead systems.
