Link Belt will be launching a new 120 ton / 110 ton four-axle truck crane this fall / fall, the 120 | HT.
The new Link-Belt 120HT
The brand new crane, which is expected to replace the current HTC HTC-86110, has a completely new air suspension system that is said to offer an ultra-light top speed of 100 km / h on the road. The suspension and braking system is the result of a two-year joint development process with suspension manufacturer Hendrickson that includes air disc brakes that are designed to improve braking performance and reduce maintenance time. The power comes from a fuel efficient Cummins X12 EPA 2021 compliant diesel. The total width is 2.59 meters and the total length is just over 14 meters. The luggage carrier cabin is a large single cabin with a new design and additional comfort.
The new drive and suspension system
The new crane has a six-part 50-meter main boom with a bolt and latch and a 10.7 to 17.7 meter long slewing extension with a short 2.9 meter extension. There are also two 4.9 extensions available, which increase the maximum tip height to almost 80 meters. The entire extension can be offset by up to 45 degrees. The maximum counterweight is 22,271 kg, of which 7,257 kg can be carried on board without the boom running down. A wireless rigging remote control can be used to adjust the outriggers, control boom elevation, and winches make set up quicker and easier.
The new cab has a wider, wide entry door with a large glazed area for improved visibility, large windshield wipers at the front and top, and strategically placed vents for quick defrost and dehumidification. Comfort features include USB and 12-volt sockets and more storage space with improved interior lighting. Crane functions are transmitted via the 10-inch Pulse 2.0 touchscreen with intuitive, customizable functions and controls. The system also includes Link-Belt’s “Smart Stack” counterweight detection system.
Delivery of the production units is scheduled to begin towards the end of the year.
