Jones Crawler Cranes Ltd., of Shaftesbury, Dorset, United Kingdom, purchased the first Link-Belt 75 ton (70 t) TCC-750 telescopic crawler crane at SED, May 13, 2009. Jones Crawler Cranes, owned by Mark and Alexandra Jones, specializes in the rental of hydraulic crawler cranes throughout Southern England. NRC Plant, the UK distributor for Link-Belt cranes, projects the crane will be in service late third quarter or early fourth quarter 2009 following the completion of final testing.
The TCC-750 made its European debut at SED with NRC Plant. The telecrawler received very strong interest throughout the show.
The TCC-750 has a completely sealed lower and hydraulically retractable side frames for easy transport and onsite flexibility. The full power boom has a maximum tip height of 121 ft (38.88 m). Designed and built from the ground up at Link-Belt headquarters in Lexington, Ky., the TCC-750 has the same features and hydraulics as Link-Belt’s lineup of telescopic cranes.
