The ATF 600G-8 does not just stop at the Triple-Boom System when it comes to new features. The Tadano Engineers opted for an Asymmetrical Outrigger Base, which will make the job easier and the job site even safer.
Many times space is a huge factor when working on the job site, which prevents being able to support a crane in its full breadth. That is where the Asymmetrical Outrigger Base Control steps in. It helps avoid unnecessary lifting capacity losses. How it works is all four outriggers use length sensors to automatically determine the length; which then records the position of the superstructure based on the angle of rotation. After these figures are collected, they're sent to the crane control system which calculates the maximum lifting capacity. The ATF 600G-8 does this arithmetic separately on each individual sector of all four outriggers.
How will the ATF 600G-8 make the job site a safer place? The crane also comes equipped with a feature called Tadano Soft-Stop. If the crane operator accidentally started swinging a load into overload areas when turning, this feature will engage and prevent him from doing so. This feature alone can save money and, most importantly, countless lives. Safety is the number one thing to think about before attempting any sort of lift, and it is obvious the Tadano Team does just that.
The ATF 600G-8 only gets better from here, from the Triple-Boom System, Asymmetrical Outrigger Base Control, and even more. Always stay safe.
