Crane manufacturer Tadano has launched a 65 ton capacity truck mounted crane for the Singapore market. The GS-600EX has a five-section hexagonal box boom with a reach of 138 ft. and is fitted on a Scania carrier. It also has the Eco-mode function to use less fuel and it can travel on public roads with the counterweight, the manufacturer added.
The new model has a monitoring device, Hello-Net, which monitors crane activity, work history, machine position data, and maintenance information, the manufacturer said. It is also fitted with the AML safety device, hydraulically operated four-point outriggers and slewable front and H-type rear outriggers.
Remains to be seen whether a similar model will appear for the North American market.
