Tadano has officially launched the all new 600 tonne ATF600G-8 All Terrain crane at a customer event tonight at Nürnberg Messes’s new Hall 3, attended by almost 1,000 guests. The theme of the launch is Welcome to Change.
The new crane is most notably differentiated by its triple boom design concept which is said to be a more convenient substitute for the Sideways Superlift/Y-Guying cable suspended booms of the competitors. The boom is 56 metres with triple pinning, and it can take a 90 metre luffing jib which is designed with three cross sections to minimise transport.
Initial load chart comparisons indicate that the crane can outperform or at the very least lift alongside cranes working with cable supported boom systems in place and yet is a good deal simpler, requires no installation and has a much tighter tailswing and working footprint.
The cane also features the latest Euromot 4 Mercedes engines, all wheel steer, a new disc brake, new assymetrical automatic outrigger set up system. There is a good deal more that we can and will say about this new crane, when we try it on the test pad at tomorrows open day.
In the meantime the gauging by the reception from customers tonight this new crane will be a winner, even a ’game changer’.
