Scott Powerline Mantis GTC-1200

Scott Powerline & Utility Equipment has enjoyed many firsts with the Mantis Crane product line – one of the first dealers, one of the first to place the cranes in a rental fleet and one of the first to introduce several new models over the years. The company has continued that tradition with Tadano Mantis’ new GTC-1200 model. This crane features a 155-foot full-power telescopic boom as well as a two-piece bifold lattice jib and extension, giving a maximum rated tip height of more than 220 feet. Further, it allows customers important pick-and-carry capability through 360 degrees. The crane has superior gradability, and its design incorporates many new safety and ease-of-operation features. It is self-erecting and uses the proven Tadano AML-C LMI system.

Scott Powerline’s GTC-1200 is the first of this model to be received by a dealer, placed in a rental fleet and now put to work. The crane is currently in use on a 345-kV power-line construction project near Floydada, Texas, where it is placing steel poles ranging in height from 120 feet to 195 feet.

Monroe, La.-based Scott Powerline & Utility Equipment rents, sells and services a wide range of equipment, including boom trucks, bucket trucks, cranes, crawlers with winches, digger derricks, multipurpose amphibious vehicles, pressure drills, sign trucks, track-mounted equipment, vacuum excavators and wire-stringing equipment.
