New from Tadano in Japan is the 60 tonne capacity GT-600EX truck crane.

The superstructure and the carrier are new and both are designed and built by Tadano. Features from Tadano rough terrains and Tadano Faun all terrain cranes are included to improve the performance of the new truck crane.

Hydraulic suspension is incorporated to improve the on-road performance and high speed (maximum 84 km/h) stability. It is already proven in a series of all terrain and rough terrain Tadano cranes, the manufacturer said.

The new 43 m boom with oval profile and the 8.8 to 15.2 m bi-fold fly jib help increase boom and jib lifting capabilities. A new model of the Automatic Moment Limiter, the AML-C, offers a safer operating environment with better visibility, Tadano said.

Setup and dismantling times are reduced as no counterweight needs to be attached or detached. The new crane is available from November.
