The new Link-Belt RTC-8090 Series II rough-terrain crane, with a rated lift capacity of 90 tons, uses Link-Belt’s patented locking-and-latching system for the machine’s five-section boom, which extends from 38 to140 feet. The boom uses a single hydraulic cylinder to move all five sections, one at a time, and incorporates Teflon wear pucks that eliminate the need for grease. The RTC-8090 has a maximum tip height of 238 feet with the two additional 16-foot lattice inserts installed between the boom-head and the optional 38-58-foot bi-fold lattice. The crane is equipped with a 225-hp Caterpillar C6.6 engine, Spicer powershift transmission (with six speeds forward and reverse), four-mode-steering system and an automotive-type, four-link suspension system (the company’s Hydro-gas Ride suspension system is optional). According to Link-Belt, the hoist drums deliver line-pull maximums of 16,880 pounds and line-speed maximums of 34 feet per minute.
