Link-Belt’s HTC-3140 and HTC-3140LB hydraulic truck cranes have received feature upgrades along with emissions updates.

For the 2016 model year, Link-Belt’s 40-ton (120-mt) HTC-3140 and HTC-3140LB hydraulic truck cranes have received feature upgrades along with emissions updates. The 581 horsepower (434kW) carrier engine graduates to EPA 2013 on-highway requirements and 250 horsepower (186kW) upper engine moves up to off-highway Tier 4f/Stage IV, the company said. Both models will maintain the twin engine platform.
The highlight of these upgrades is the addition of side-to-side suspension tilt that can go up to 4 degrees. An auto-lubrication system is a new feature on both the upper and carrier frames and “all temperature” hydraulic oil, lubrication, and anti-freeze packages are now standard. Carrier cameras connected to viewing monitors in the cab offer an operator a rearview when backing up or a view of the right side of the carrier when making a right turn.

Transportability is still impressive on the 2016 model HTC-3140 and HTC-3140LB, Link-Belt said. Carrying 6,000 lbs. (2 721.5 kg) of counterweight on the back of this truck is not new in a 5-axle configuration, but now it is possible with a boom dolly. This means a well-equipped 195 ft. (59.5m) boom “LB” version can carry 32,000 lbs. (14 514.9 kg) of counterweight and still achieve transport loading below 20,000 lbs. (9 071.8 kg) per axle. The 162 ft. (49.3m) boom version in the same configuration can carry 39,000 lbs. (17 690.1 kg) of counterweight and yield the same results, Link-Belt said.
