New Link-Belt Cranes Available at All Crane Rental
The package includes four 60-USt HTC-8660 truck cranes, four 50-USt TCC-500 telecrawlers, four 80-USt TCC-800 telecrawlers, one 140-USt TCC-1400 telecrawler, one 100-USt 100 RT rough-terrain crane, and two 200-USt 248-HSL lattice boom crawlers.
Link-Belt models are prized for their ease of transport and fast setup once on the jobsite. “Link-Belt truck cranes and RTs are staples of our taxi fleet,” said Joe Ruddell, retail sales manager of Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, a member of the ALL Family of Companies. “The variety Link-Belt offers helps us to serve a wide range of customer needs.”
The package includes four of the brand-new TCC-800 80-USt telecrawlers, the sixth telecrawler model Link-Belt has introduced. “To us, it’s an ideal upgrade to the TCC-750 that we’ve loved and relied on for years,” said Ruddell. The new TCC-800 model offers a similar feature set to the 750, but with an additional five tons of capacity and five more feet of boom for 120 total feet. The TCC-800 is the first in Link-Belt’s telecrawler lineup to feature the variable equipped and monitored track positions (V-CALC) system. It offers a full range of operating gauge widths between the extended track position of 17 feet and the retracted 11-foot, 5-inch position.
“All of Link-Belt’s TCC units can be transported in single loads, which is economical for customers,” said Ruddell. “The TCC-500 sees a lot of use setting rebar cages, on power line projects, and on smaller steel jobs. The 500 and 800 are both popular for bridge work. With the fully retractable boom, they can crawl into tight spaces.”
Also brand-new is the RT 100, a two-axle rough-terrain crane that replaces a three-axle version. It is expected to be used extensively in bare rental work, with the flexibility to be used in mid-size steel and iron work, precast projects, and setting rebar for foundations.
Delivery of cranes in the 16-unit package has already begun, with Link-Belt production expected to keep up with the order throughout the balance of 2020 and completing in 2021.
