New Link-Belt TCC-450 to debut in October

24 April 2008

Link-Belt will introduce the TCC-450 telescopic crawler crane to North America in October. Link-Belt and sister company Hitachi Sumitomo Construction Crane Co. collaborated on the 45 ton capacity (40.8 tonne) crane that merges the capability of a rough terrain crane with the mobility and stability of a crawler crane.

The North American compliant model is a derivative of HSC's model introduced in 2005. Link-Belt has responded to customer requests and implemented numerous modifications for the North American market as a result of input from customers and distributors. The design of the TCC-450 will feature what Link-Belt insiders describe as “the same bulletproof hydraulic components as Link-Belt's renowned HYLAB series.”

Link-Belt will sneak preview the unit at the SC&RA Annual Conference in Hilton, Head, NC in late April and is on track to showcase units at its Cranefest customer event in Lexington, KY in October.
