  • Full power, 4 section telescopic boom
  • With a width of only 2.5 metres and a 44° articulation it stands out as the most manoeuvrable PC on the market
  • Small footprint to move and set up in tight spaces
  • 75% stationery chart and 66% pick and carry chart
  • Ability to road its own 2.3t counterweight
  • ROPs style cabin for maximum driver safety

Cummins ISB6.7 Engine

The PC28-3G is powered by a 6.7-litre 320hp 238kw, inline six Cummins ISB6.7 which is certified to the world’s toughest on-highway diesel emission standard, Euro 6, which achieves near-zero emissions. Cummins designs, develops, and supports every component from the air intake to the exhaust after treatment to work as an integrated system – so every function is optimised better than other engine manufacturers.

Brake retarder


The latest Allison Transmission now featuring retarder provides retardation-style braking capabilities.

  • The retarder delivers increased safety and control.
  • Lowered operational expenses from a reduction in repair and maintenance.
  • Improved user experience.
  • Reduced noise in urban areas compared to an engine braking system.
  • The transmission has 6 forward speeds. Speed Limited to 80km/hr.

Huge Lifting Capacity

With a 28t maximum lift on the lug and 27.6t on the hook block, the TIDD PC28-3G delivers outstanding lifting capacities for improved efficiency and greater lift options, setting a new benchmark in the industry. Moving from the stationary chart to the pick and carry chart is as simple as turning off the hold brake. You can now lift more and move more safely without compromise. Including more powerful front suspension cylinders, lifting capacity has increased by an average of 17% when articulated or working on a side slope and in some cases by over 40% in lifting performance.

The optional 1.1t Superlift counterweight will increase lift capacity.


Full Power Boom

With the 18.65 metre full power boom, a 75 percent stationary chart for heavy lifts, and a 66 percent pick and carry chart, the TIDD PC28 3G packs a massive punch. Made from Swedish high-tensile steel, telescopic sections one and two are fully synchronised and provide hook compensation. Telescopic section three is independently operated with its own hydraulic cylinder.

The winch featuring a single line pull of 4.6 tonne provides the largest capacity option in its class.


Ultimate in comfort

The Ultimate in Comfort

From the ergonomically designed forward mounted ROPs style cabin, with two-door configuration and ducted air conditioning, to the 150kg rated air suspension seats, 3-point safety belts, and optional refrigerated compartment this crane is designed for comfort over long hours, helping to reduce operator fatigue.

Outside the cabin

Focus on Safety

  • Slew Safe® is a critical safety component designed to help prevent rollovers and is included with all TIDD PC28-3G Cranes.
  • Emergency stop buttons are positioned within the cabin and on either side of the crane articulation area.
  • 3-point integrated safety belts
  • ROPs Style integrated safety frame
  • ABS Braking
  • Air suspension seats for reduced operator fatigue
  • Thanks to its forward-mounted cabin featuring an elevated seating position, updated mirror arrangements, extra cameras, and expansive top glass view, the TIDD PC28 3G offers an expanded field of vision, whether you’re operating the crane, driving, or both.
Dynamic load indicator

Dynamic LMI

  • Safety benefits include Dynamic LMI with a deadlock switch inside the cabin which derates the crane for pitch and roll.
  • LMI bridging switch as standard, enables the TIDD PC28-3G to legitimately operate under EN13000 standards, which makes it the only pick and carry crane in its class with a 75% lift chart with a holding brake applied.
