Link-Belt ATC-3275 all-terrain crane, rated at 275 tons lift capacity has a seven-section, full-power boom that extends from 43.7 to 223 feet and features eight boom-extend modes. Optional boom attachments bring maximum tip height to 350 feet. Maximum line pull is 22,510 pounds, and maximum line speed is 420 fpm. The crane’s modular counterweight system, a potential total of 156,500 pounds, has no module weighing more than 22,000 pounds, simplifying transport in only four truckloads, including maximum counterweight, rigging, matting, and fly extensions. The carrier features anti-lock brakes, retarder, and engine brake; standard features include emergency steering, cruise control, and traction control. A 550-horsepower Cummins ISX 15L powers the carrier, and a transversely mounted Cummins QSB 6.7L, rated at 215 horsepower, powers the upper. The upper cab tilts to 20 degrees to facilitate visibility at high boom angles.
