Link-Belt Cranes reports it has upgraded the lifting capacity on the RTC-80150 rough-terrain crane from 150 to 160 tons, and it has designated the crane as the RTC-80160 Series II.
“The 80150 has been a phenomenal success ever since it was introduced, and this new base rating will be good news to our distributors and crane owners,” said Brian Smoot, Link-Belt’s rough-terrain crane manager. “It only makes sense for us to upgrade the 80150 to represent the top base rating in the market with the RTC-80160 Series II.”
The RTC-80160 Series II features a 42.3-195.3-foot standard pin-and-latch boom. Attachments include a 10- to 55-foot bi-fold jib and an 18-foot lattice-boom extension. Maximum tip height is 311 feet. Maximum line-pull is 22,479 pounds, and maximum line speed is 435 feet per minute.
Link-Belt Cranes first introduced the hydrostatic drive on a six-wheel carrier frame in 2002 with the RTC-80100 Series II. The product offering has since grown, and Link-Belt now has three six-wheel rough-terrain cranes: the RTC-80110 Series II, RTC-80130 Series II, and RTC-80160 Series II. Link-Belt’s six-wheel rough-terrain cranes are used in a range of applications, from pier and dock work, to refineries and industrial plants, to wind farm maintenance.
