Construction Equipment Guide

LBX’s new Link-Belt 240 X2 material handler is designed for specialty applications such as scrap/material-handling, demolition, waste transfer and site prep. With the option of linkage- or gooseneck-style attachments, this machine can be equipped with a variety of tools like dangling magnets and orange-peel grapples for scrap yards, trash grapples for construction and demolition debris, buckets for handling material fines, or shears and processors to handle tougher tasks.

Operators will have added visibility into truck bodies or containers such as rail cars with a cab that raises hydraulically to a full height of 18-ft. 2-in. (5.5 m) while still allowing for easy transport from job-to-job with a weight of approximately 70,000 lbs. (31,751 kg).

An optional cab anti-interference device is available to prevent the attachment tool from damaging the cab when it’s positioned at its furthermost point, and an operator protective guard is standard on the front of the cab. To also help prevent damage in harsh applications, the 240 has thick upper belly pans.

The 240 MH is factory-equipped with auxiliary hydraulics for open/close/rotate to handle the needs of tools in its class. For scrap applications, the 240 also is prepped from the factory for easy installation of gensets, which includes plumbing and hydraulic motor to run a generator. A solid-state controller and generator are available from the factory, or a Baldor generator and Hubbell/Ohio brand controllers are available through LBX to run magnets.

Additionally, the 240 can be equipped with 23.6 in. (600 mm) flat pads for minimal surface damage or triple grouser shoes in widths of 23.6, 27.5 or 31.4 in. (600, 700 or 800 mm).
