Link-Belt will showcase three of its cranes at this year's M&T Expo in San Paulo, Brazil. It will be in conjunction with its new distributor for the country, Brasil Máquinas de Construção (BMC).
On show at the exhibition, taking place 29 May to 2 June 2012, will be the 50 tonne capacity 108 Hylab 5 lattice boom crawler crane, the 60 tonne RTC-8065 Series II rough terrain crane, and the 85 tonne HTT-86100 truck crane.
The 108 Hylab 5 has a 42.7 metre boom. Maximum tip height is 49.7 m. Available with a front or rear mounted third drum, it is often used for dragline and clamshell work.
The RTC-8065 Series II has a 35 m four-section boom. An optional bi-folding fly attachment extends maximum tip height to 54.9 m. Two optional lattice fly inserts further extend the tip height to 64.3 m. Power comes from a 175 kW Caterpillar C6.6 engine.
Link-Belt's HTT-86100 truck crane has steerable rear axles and offers four steering modes: independent front, independent rear, combination, and crab. The HTT-86100 has a five-section boom with a maximum height of 42.7 m. Maximum tip height is 72.2 m with two 4.9 m lattice inserts installed between the boom head and the fly.
