CD Perry expands its fleet with the GTC-1300

CD Perry of Troy, NY was interested in a new crane to fill the gap between their current 110 ton lattice boom crawler and their 200 ton lattice boom crawler.

CD Perry plans to use its new GTC-1300 for marine, industrial, heavy civil and environmental applications.

The company purchased a Tadano GTC-1300 2022 130-ton telescopic boom crawler from Empire Crane Company. The GTC-1300 meets their size requirements and simplifies and streamlines their work processes, CD Perry said.

In 2015, the company purchased a 77-ton Tadano Manits 15010 Telecrawler from Empire Crane. Their experience with the 15010 led them to choose a telescopic boom over another lattice boom crane.

“Telecrawlers are easier to operate, easier to mobilize and when you can adjust the boom in and out as well as retract the crawlers hydraulically, that makes it better for a variety of different applications,” says Tyler Fane, Vice President, CD Perry.

The Tadano GTC-1300 has a capacity of 130 tons and the maximum boom length is 155 feet. CD Perry plans to use its new GTC-1300 for marine, industrial, heavy civil and environmental applications.

A dedication on the rear counterweight of the GTC-1300 reads “In Memory of Jack E. Perry 1925-2021”. Jack Perry was the 2nd generation to run CD Perry (his father Cutler Perry originally started the company).
