TIDD PC28 Demo Video

Packed with operational and safety features and unrivalled lift capacity, see why the TIDD PC28 has got the industry buzzing!

The following video is a demonstration of the capability of the TIDD PC28 pick and carry crane. This demonstration video covers many of its main operating features, the new industry standard safety features. See how these class-leading features will help you get the job done...and get it done more safely than ever before.

The following demonstration was based at Baden Davis Crane Connection Pty Ltd, based in Sydney, Australia, one of the TIDD Crane's Australian dealers.  Please see below for a breakdown of the video content by time and feature. 




Key Feature Demonstration Times on Video


  • 0:00 - 44 - degree articulation demonstration
  • 0:45 - Discussion on lifting performance giving 1.7m more radius than a competitor on full boom/max radius
  • 0:55 - Discussion on the benefit of 2.5m width, no IAP or permits
  • 1:15 - Kessler axle discussion
  • 1:25 - ABS brakes are standard
  • 1:35 - 2.3 tonne counterweight on the front gives 12t per axle, on rear gives close to super lift (SL) capacities on 66% chart pick and carry charts and better than SL capacities on 75% stationary chart
  • 2:15 - 1.1 tonne SL counterweight is being developed and will be on display at CICA Conference, October 2019
  • 2:50 - Discussion on Dynamic Load Moment Indicator (DLMI) improvements to layout with new bar graphs for both slew angle and side slope angle.
  • 4:00 - Demonstration of 18.64m Full Power Boom. Discussion of boom compensation and synchronized extension of both T1 & T2 whilst T3 has its own cylinder and requires the rope to lowered at the same time to avoid two blocking.
  • 4:50 - Discussion on 75% stationary load chart activated by applying the Hold (H) brake, giving 12% capacity jump over the 66% pick & carry chart which is automatically selected once the hold brake is deactivated.
  • 6:15 - Demonstration of high boom angle to allow direct access to chains from the hook without any manual handling. Boom angle select is 57.46 degrees. Max angle is 65 degrees.
  • 7:48 - Note: Max capacity on 4 falls = 18.4 tonne (4.6t line pull x 4 falls = 18.4t) Max capacity on 6 falls = 27.6 tonne (4.6t line pull x 6 falls = 27.6t) Crane is rigged with 4 falls so capacity is capped at 18.4t in this configuration
  • 8:00 - 2-speed winch button and telescoping button on joystick
  • 10:40 - DLMI graphic for 75% stationary chart (Large outer graphic) and 66% pick and carry chart (Thin inset graphic) 75% chart = 17.37t 66% chart 15.44t 12.5% chart improvement with (H) brake applied and 75% chart
  • 12:45 - Discussion on the effect of side slope and in particular the induced side slope from tyre deflection. About 1° in this case
  • 17:50 - Explanation of the amount of additional de-rating required for 1 degree of side slope from tyre deflection in this case 1 tonne. - Load on the ground gives 3.3 degree side slope = 8.15t capacity - Load off the ground and 4.3° side slope = 7.13t capacity
  • 19:20 - Slew Safe explanation and demonstration
  • 23:20 - Custom site restriction demonstration showing 50% de-rate using Serviceman’s code
  • 26:10 - DLMI graphic for 75% stationary chart and 66% pick and carry chart
  • 27:00 - Deadlock switch inside the cabin allowing overload to 110% of the chart at 15% speed and the Bridging switch (Key activated) located outside the cabin next to the E-stop also at 15% speed and times out after 60 minutes.
  • 28:00 - Discussion on Slew Safe
