Scott-Macon Equipment purchased four new Tadano Mantis telescopic boom crawler cranes at bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany. The Scott-Macon Equipment fleet will be bolstered by two new GTC-800s (88 US ton capacity), a GTC-600 (66 US ton capacity) and a GTC-350 (35 US ton capacity).
Scott-Macon Managing Director Alexander Scott said, “We are excited to be making this multiple Tadano Mantis crane purchase. We have purchased a number of the GTC-800s in the recent past and have been very happy with this newly designed GTC version of the Tadano Mantis crane. We are pleased to see this new design extended to the other cranes in the Mantis lineup and are looking forward to putting these additional cranes into our marketplace.”
The GTC-800 features a five-section, 141.1-foot main boom, plus a 58.1-foot bi-fold jib. The GTC-600 has a 4-section, 118.1-foot main boom (58.1-foot bi-fold jib), while the GTC-350 has an 89.3-foot boom and 42-foot extendable jib.
