Link-Belt Cranes first introduced rear wheel steering to the truck crane market on a custom truck crane chassis 21 years ago when it displayed the 70-ton HTT-8670 at ConExpo 2002. Now Link-Belt’s truck terrain crane lineup is growing with the launch of a new four-axle 120|TTLB.
The Link-Belt 120|TTLB truck terrain crane features a 197-foot seven-section pin and latch boom with all-wheel steer and tight turning radius. All-wheel steer capability on the 120|TTLB makes it ideal for crane maneuverability in tight jobsite settings, the company said. A steerable rear axle with super single tires gives the 120|TT LB four steering modes – independent front, independent rear, combination and crab.
The 120|TTLB comes with an air-ride suspension design, and air disc brakes on a rear-steer truck crane for advanced braking performance. For added engine performance and fuel economy the 120|TTLB is powered by a Cummins 445 hp (339 kW) EPA emissions compliant X12 Series engine. Top speed on the 120|TTLB is 55 mph (88 km/h).
This product launch brings Link-Belt’s family of hydraulic truck terrain models to five: 75-ton HTT-8675 Series II, 100-ton HTT-86100, 110-ton HTT-86110, 120-ton 120|TT, and now the new 120-ton 120|TTLB.
