YOUR NEW CRANE IS A GENUINE TADANO.

SAFE, RELIABLE, AND ECONOMICAL.

MODERN SOFTWARE MAKES IT EASIER TO PLAN YOUR JOBS.

THE ATF 600G-8’S DATA IS AVAILABLE FOR ALMOST EVERY PROGRAM.

Using modern job-planning tools such as KranXpert and craniMAX you can plan your ATF 600G-8’s work easily, accurately, and clearly on your own desktop or laptop. It doesn’t matter whether your ATF 600G-8 is working alone or in a multiple-lift situation: you can use your job-planning tool to simulate even the most complex operations, taking into account other buildings, interfering edges, and subsurfaces. These programs are easy and intuitive to use and do not require any in-depth CAD expertise. 

Your ATF 600G-8’s data is available for every commonly available open-source job-planning tool. That means you can keep on planning efficiently in your familiar environment.

LIFTING ISN’T EVERYTHING.

ENJOY TOP PERFORMANCE ON THE ROAD AS WELL

Like every other TADANO crane, the ATF 600G-8 utilizes powerful, reliable industrial engines made by Mercedes-Benz – in the undercarriage as well as the superstructure. Mercedes-Benz created a special new feature for the 625 HP undercarriage engine to help it fulfill the new Euromot 4 / Tier 4f exhaust standards: an extremely powerful engine brake. This new decompression brake works without wear, just like the engine exhaust brakes in Euromot 3b / Tier 4i engines. That makes it especially suitable for extended periods of use, such as when driving down long hills.

Similarly convenient is the fact that you can drive the ATF 600G-8 on the road with 12 t per axle. You can even take the two rear outriggers with you along for the ride. The crane is so stable that you can use the two rear outriggers to install the front ones without difficulty and without an auxiliary crane.

In countries where higher axle loads are permitted on the roads, you can of course drive the crane with all four outriggers. Because you don’t need to carry an additional boom suspension system, this will only increase the axle load slightly. That, in turn, has a positive influence on wear and tear, both when driving and when applying the brakes.

THE LESS YOU SPEND ON TRANSPORT, THE GREATER YOUR PROFITS WILL BE.

SO IT’S GOOD IF YOU DON’T HAVE TO DELIVER A BOOM SUSPENSION SYSTEM.

A major factor in the economics of any large crane is transporting the complete system quickly and easily to the construction site. We know that every crane owner has his own way of going about this, and that it depends on the distance to the site and the trailers that are available.

The diagram shows just how compact and space-saving the ATF 600G-8’s complete equipment is during transport.

To arrive at this, we opted for a three-stage luffing jib with three different cross sections. This means you can transport up to three parts of the lattice jib by sliding them into each other – and you only need two trailers for most of the jib. The height of the largest cross section is such that you can also transport counterweights beneath parts of the lattice jib. There’s one trailer you’ll no longer need at all: the one for the boom suspension system. The Triple-Boom System makes it superfluous, which will reduce your transport costs considerably – job after job, throughout the entire period of use of your ATF 600G-8.

Work it out for yourself:

  • What does it cost to rent a truck, including driver, for each return journey?
  • How many jobs do you need a boom suspension system for each year?
  • How many years do you intend to use your ATF 600G-8?

How much will you save if you no longer need a trailer for a boom suspension system? If you’ve always bought your own trailer for transporting a boom suspension system then you will save three times over: no acquisition cost, no operating cost, and no servicing cost.

These savings add up to a significant amount over just a few years. And they are savings that keep on repeating themselves throughout the entire period of use of your ATF 600G-8. If you sell it later, it will increase the value of your used ATF 600G-8 considerably.

YOU NO LONGER NEED TO SET UP A BOOM SUSPENSION SYSTEM.

YOU’LL SAVE TIME AND MONEY AND BE ABLE TO DO MORE JOBS.

Are you still rigging – or are you already lifting? Because the Triple-Boom System means as you don’t need a boom suspension system, you don’t have to set one up. This saves a lot of time, even over the very latest boom suspension systems – time you could be using for your next job.

There is one whole process stage less during the setup phase, which has a significant impact on the operating costs of your new ATF 600G-8. Work out for yourself just how much you will save:

  • How many hours does it take to set up a boom suspension system? How many hours does it take to dismantle it?
  • How many workers do you need for that?
  • What are the hourly wages of those workers?
  • What do the auxiliary items of equipment cost that you need for setting up and dismantling (such as an auxiliary crane)?
  • How many jobs do you need a boom suspension system for each year?
  • How many years do you intend to use your ATF 600G-8?

Furthermore, how much more will your turnover be if the time you save by not having to set up and dismantle a boom suspension system means you can do more jobs?

It’s often necessary to relocate a crane on a construction site. Because the ATF 600G-8 doesn’t need a boom suspension system, it has less weight bearing down on its axles when you move it around. Instead, you can carry more counterweight or more equipment, especially since the ATF 600G-8 is steered on, and can be powered by, all its axles. This means you eliminate dismantling, separate transport, and reassembly.

Another advantage: as the head of the Triple-Boom has a large enough base for the attachment of the 90 m luffing fly jib, you do not need an additional spacer to increase the base. This reduces your setup costs and makes your construction site even more efficient.

construction site managers and your own staff will benefit from not having to set up equipment high above the ground. All in all, everyone involved enjoys not only more time and flexibility, but more safety too.

BROADEN YOUR APPLICATION SCOPE.

AND REDUCE YOUR COSTS AT THE SAME TIME.

The new Triple-Boom System doesn’t just bring you big economic benefits during transport and setup, it also has advantages for use on the construction site.

Small tail swing radius

Because it doesn’t need a boom suspension system, the ATF 600G-8 has a tail swing radius of just 6.95 m – approximately half that of large cranes with suspended booms. This means you can use your 8-axle crane even on construction sites with limited space (such as in refineries, plants, and city centers). This will greatly expand the range of use of your crane, and ensure that it remains in use as much as possible; or to put it another way, the space you gain by not having a boom suspension system means you’ll often be able to position the ATF 600G-8 nearer to the load point and be able to lift more, depending on the situation. 

This makes your ATF 600G-8 a genuine all-rounder that you can use for all sorts of jobs.

High lifting capacity potential

This is an all-rounder that can handle heavy loads too, thanks to the high flexural and torsional stiffness of its unique Triple-Boom System. The ATF 600G-8 can activate its lifting capacity potential much more easily and quickly than similar large cranes with suspended booms. It can also easily lift as much, which makes it a genuine alternative purely in terms of its lifting capacity profile.

Unlike suspension technology, the Triple-Boom System is fully effective even at short and medium main boom lengths. This is clearly evident when you look at the lifting capacity – including in conjunction with a luffing jib or rigid boom extension. And speaking of luffing jibs, the triple-boom handles the use of a luffing jib on medium to large work radii like no other system. The cables on suspension systems cope with tension alone, whereas the ‘Power Tubes’ at either side of the Triple-Boom System also absorb any torsion introduced by lateral forces such as wind and rotary acceleration. 

A new feature called ‘Asymmetrical Outrigger Base Control’, which maximizes the lifting capacity potential in the area around each outrigger, further increases the range of use and the occupancy level of your ATF 600G-8.

Save fuel with two engines

TADANO has opted to equip the ATF 600G-8 with its famously economical two-engine solution. This gives the new 8-axle crane its own independent superstructure engine. Because this engine’s size and performance are suited to crane operation, it uses much less fuel than big undercarriage engines that power crane work as well as driving the whole vehicle on the road and around the construction site. So the efficiency principle on which the ATF 600G-8 is based takes full effect even while the crane is at work. As a crane owner it will noticeably reduce your overall operating costs.
