Sean Nyland, managing director at Delden Cranes said: “The four Tadano GTC-600 telescopic boom crawler cranes are an excellent addition to our fleet.
“We’ve seen growing demand from our customers for an alternative to the 50-tonne capacity lattice boom crawler, especially in urban areas where there’s no room to rig anything, and the GTC-600 fits the bill perfectly.
“It’s particularly suitable for piling works, especially in the high-rise and road sectors, but it also has the benefit of being a great pick and carry machine too, which means we’ve had no trouble getting work for all four machines since they arrived.”
All four machines have been busy since arriving in May and are currently working across the UK.
One is on piling duties at London’s Euston Station as part of its expansion for HS2, another is working in the North East on a power project performing general lifting duties, while the other two are in the South West and Wales respectively, performing piling duties on road work expansion projects.
The 60-tonne capacity GTC-600 has 36m of fully telescopic boom, which is specifically designed for pick and carry duties, out of level and foundation work, and can also be fitted with a 17.7m fly-jib, giving this versatile machine a maximum lifting height of 55.5m.
The GTC-600 also comes with a twin winch and Tadano’s Opti-Width as standard. Opti-Width gives optimised lifting performance in restricted width configurations, while the tracks can be set asymmetrically, which gives significant improvements in lifting capacity when compared to symmetrical track width settings.
Nyland said: “The Tadano GTC-600 telescopic boom crawler crane is packed with features and I’m excited by the reaction of our customers to this new addition to our fleet.
“If the last couple of months are anything to go by, I look forward to seeing these machines continue to work on some of the UK’s most exciting construction projects.”
