England: Visitors to SED May 22-24 can take a look at LinkBelt's new HTT-8690 telescopic terrain crane.
The North American 8690 features all-wheel steer capability for crane maneuverability in tight areas. Its turning radius is less than 9 meters (29 feet) at the edge of the tire. The machine features a five-section, 42.7 meter (140 feet) formed boom, and a patented locking and latching system, which means there is no deduction in the capacity chart when telescoping a load. Each boom section extends independently using one doubleacting, single-stage hydraulic cylinder with integrated holding valves. The maximum tip height is 72.2 meters (237 feet) with two 4.9 meter (16 feet) lattice inser between the boom head and th optional 10.7 to 17.7 meter (3 to 58 feet), bi-folding lattice. All attachment combinations have offset positions of 2, 15, 30, and 45 degrees.
