Construction Lifting & Concrete Placement

Tadano telescopic crawler crane.

Model GTC-1600 Tadano crane is a telescopic boom crawler crane with a 160-ton lift capacity.  

The Tadano crane has a 6-section boom that can extend from 42.8 feet to 200.1 feet. The boom uses a single-cylinder telescoping and pinning system to extend and retract all of the sections automatically, and it can be locked in selected working positions. A 33.8 / 59.1-foot bifold jib has offsets of up to 40 degrees. A jib length of 105 feet is possible with two 23-foot optional lattice inserts, which give the telescoping boom crane a maximum tip height of 305.0 feet. An optional 11.8-foot heavy-lift jib with 20 degree and 40 degree offsets is also available.

The 326-horsepower Cummins B6.7 diesel engine has maximum engine torque of 1,014 lb.-ft. at 1,500 rpm. Multiple throttle control modes give flexibility and provide fuel savings. The travel system features two-speed track drives with maximum speeds of 1.5 mph and a maximum unladen gradeability of 52 percent.

A comprehensive control system and enhanced interface enables the operator to monitor nearly every aspect of the crane on a single full-color display. On-screen warnings, operator-definable working zones with end-of-zone soft-stop function, and automatic switching for out-of-level load charts for slopes up to 4 degrees reinforces safety when operating the GTC-1600. Control settings can be adjusted for operator preference. 

The OPTI-WIDTH system provides the maximum available lifting capacity in limitless combinations of symmetrical and asymmetrical track width setups with no requirement for pinning of the track frames in fixed positions, according to the company.

The GTC-1600 crane can be set up without an assist crane. It has a self-erecting counterweight system with remote control and integrated two-stage carbody jacks. Hydraulic quick couplers on the track drive hoses enable simple, tool-free track frame removal and handling. The base crane weighs less than 96,000 pounds, and can be transported on a single low-bed truck with remaining crane components hauled separately on up to four standard trucks.
