Scott-Macon Equipment’s new Tadano Mantis GTC-800, 88-ton capacity, telescopic-boom, crawler crane was on display at the Tadano booth at the ConExpo international trade show in Las Vegas.

Scott-Macon Managing Director Alexander Scott said, “We are excited to be purchasing this newly-designed GTC version of the Mantis crane. We have had great experience with our GTC-1200 and are pleased the new design has been carried into the 800 series. We are particularly impressed by the increased boom length as well as the other improvements that Tadano has incorporated over the predecessor to the GTC-800.”

The new GTC-800 features a five-section, 141.1-ft. boom plus a 58.1-ft. bi-fold jib. The crane automatically displays the correct load chart for operation at up to 4° out of level. The level-ground charts apply on slopes to 1.5°.

The GTC-800 boasts the Tadano AML-C rated capacity indicator with Opti-Width (Tadano Mantis’ system allowing asymmetric track positioning in reduced-width configurations), HelloNet Telematics, and a Cummins 310-hp QSB6.7 Tier 4f engine.
