Crane manufacturer Link-Belt will show the 80 ton capacity RTC-8080 Series II rough terrain crane at the 2014 ConExpo show in Las Vegas, USA, from 4 to 8 March.
New features on the RTC-8080 Series II include a remote controlled high intensity boom floodlight, a standard camera package and aluminium decking. Customers can also choose to have Tier 4 Final / EU Stage IV compliant engine or a Tier III engine fitted. Both versions of the engine are 270 hp Cummins QSB 6.7L.
The crane has a 41 to 127-ft. four section boom and there is the confined area lifting capacity (CALC) system that allows for three different outrigger positions (fully extended, intermediate and fully retracted). It also has Link-Belt Pulse, a crane operating system that can also read more than twenty crane diagnostics parameters, including rated capacity limiter, wind speed, boom length and angle, and the load radius.
