September 11 - Kentucky headquartered Link-Belt has developed a 90-tonne capacity HTC-86110 truck crane, featuring a 49.9 m long main boom.
The front and rear axles have a combined transport capacity of 48.6 tonnes at speeds in excess of 60 mph.
The crane can travel with its standard 7.25 tonnes of counterweight without the need of a boom dolly. An additional 14.7 tonnes of counterweight is available. Total transport weight can be reduced to less than 40.8 tonnes when all the counterweight is removed.
Powering the HTC-86110 is a 450-horsepower (336kw) Cummins engine with 1,550 foot-pounds of torque for the North American market. There is also a Tier 3/Euro Stage IIIA engine available for regions outside of North America.
