Link-Belt Announces Two New Models for ConExpo
Link-Belt is raising the ante in Las Vegas with the unveiling of its second all-terrain crane built specifically for the North American market at ConExpo 2014, March 4 to 8. Link-Belt introduced its first all-terrain crane at ConExpo 2011 and has taken the success from the ATC-3275 to help shape its new 210-ton (185-t) ATC-3210.
According to product manager of hydraulic truck and all-terrain cranes, Rick Curnutte, “We've seen great success with the ATC-3275. It's got the reach and the capacities, and it's less complicated to operate. And we have transportation figured out better than anyone else. Several of our AT purchases have been from repeat customers who have put this crane to the test and have realized the savings on the transportation side of it.”
Designed with extensive customer input, the ATC-3210 will meet the toughest transport laws in North America while also meeting Tier IV final and EPA 2013 on-highway requirements.
Link-Belt also will unveil its all-new 50-ton (51 t) TCC-500 telescopic crawler crane at ConExpo.
The TCC-500 offers a capacity chart that rivals even lattice crawler cranes with a similar base rating, according to the manufacturer. Four-section, full-power boom on the TCC-500 is 35 ft. 6 in. to 110 ft. (10.8 to 33.8 m) in length with box type construction of high tensile steel consisting of one base section and three telescoping sections. The vertical side plates of the boom have diamond-shaped steel impressions for strength to weight ratio. Fly options include a 28.5 to 51 ft. (8.7 to 15.6 m) two piece bi-fold lattice fly, stowable, offsettable to 2, 20 and 40 degrees; maximum tip height is 165.5 ft. (50.44 m).
