C.D. Perry grows fleet with GTC-1300

By Hannah Sundermeyer11 May 2022

C.D. Perry of Troy, NY were interested in a new crane to fill the gap between their current 110-ton lattice boom crawler and their 200-ton lattice boom crawler.

C.D. Perry plans on using their new GTC-1300 for marine, industrial, heavy civil and environmental applications.

The company purchased a 2022 Tadano GTC-1300, 130-ton telescopic boom crawler from Empire Crane Company. The GTC-1300 fits their size requirements as well as simplifies and streamlines their job processes, C.D. Perry said. 

Back in 2015, the company purchased a Tadano Manits 15010, 77-ton telecrawler, from Empire Crane. Their experience with the 15010 led them to choose a telescopic boom over another lattice boom crane.

“Telecrawlers are easier to operate, easier to mobilize and when you can scope the boom in and out as well as retract the tracks in hydraulically, it makes it better for a variety of different applications” says Tyler Fane, vice president, C.D. Perry. 

The Tadano GTC-1300 features a 130-ton capacity and the maximum boom length is 155 feet.C.D. Perry plans on using their new GTC-1300 for marine, industrial, heavy civil and environmental applications.

A dedication on the GTC-1300’s rear counterweight reads “In memory of Jack E. Perry 1925- 2021.” Jack Perry was the 2nd generation to lead C.D. Perry (his father Cutler Perry originally started the company).
