With a five-section, telescopic boom upperworks combined with a crawler lowerworks, the new SCC8100TBXL model provides the dual advantages of a crawler crane and hydraulic crane, the company says.
The largest telescopic-boom crawler crane in Link-Belt’s three-model range, the TCC-1100, has a rated lift capacity of 110 tons.
Link-Belt says its 75-ton TCC-750 is the largest telescopic crawler crane that can transport at under 100,000 pounds with tracks attached.
Liebherr’s 1,320-ton (at just over an 8-foot lift radius) LTR 11200 telescopic crawler crane is designed with narrow track width for erecting wind power turbines.
Chicago-area crane-rental operation, Stevenson Crane, has demonstrated setting up the 120-ton Liebherr LTR1100 with only a 10-foot assembly jib in 30 minutes. The 172-foot telescopic crawler crane transports on three truck loads, and requires no set-up crane.
