Link-Belt Introduces the 100RT Rough Terrain Crane
At CraneFest 2015, Link-Belt Construction Equipment introduced the 90 t 100RT, a new member to its rough terrain crane lineup. Building on the current “mid-size” class of Link-Belt rough terrain cranes, the 100RT showcases Link-Belt’s ability to add familiar components customers have come to expect on a Link-Belt rough terrain while setting a new standard for reach and capacity.
The 100RT will have a 6-section pin and latch boom with a length of 50 m and maximum tip height of 79.8 m. A 3-piece bi-fold, on-board fly with an integrated 3.0 m section is available and can be manually offset. Operation could not be simpler with only 4 boom extend modes and the ability to telescope under load on the 100RT. The boom design incorporates Link-Belt’s standard Teflon wear pucks impregnated into the wear pad surfaces so the boom requires no grease.
On board fly options include both 2- and 3-piece lattice bi-folds, 3.0– 10.6– 17.6 m long; the fly manually offsets to 2°, 15°, 30°, and 45°. An available 3.0 m heavy-lift fly – integral to one of the fly options – swings and pins into place and has over 21.7 t of lifting capacity with 1-load 2-line lift procedures. Two 4.8 m lattice extensions give the 100RT its maximum tip height of 79.8 m. Fly extensions on the 100RT are interchangeable with several existing Link-Belt RTC and HTC models.
Dual and single axis controllers are both available on the 100RT, and for high-angle lifts the cab can tilt up to 20°. Standard air conditioning, a sun shade screen, and a 5-way-adjustable seat with headrest ensure a comfortable work environment. The operator’s cab features a large viewing window, minimizing blind spots with conveniently located controls and readouts, fine metering and Link-Belt Pulse.
Link-Belt Pulse is a Link-Belt designed, total crane operating system that utilizes an in-cab display as a readout and operator interface with on-board diagnostics including the rated capacity limiter, wireless wind speed, boom length and angle, radius of load and crane configuration just to name a few. There are 3 new lockable storage boxes: 2 storage boxes are integrated into the deck and one is located between carrier and front outrigger box.
The 100RT camera package enhances on-board site monitoring and includes cameras for viewing to the right side of the upper, the main and auxiliary winch, as well as one for backing up. Another unique safety feature includes LED viewing lights on all 4 outrigger beams.
As with all Link-Belt rough terrain cranes, 6 points of access to the carrier deck has been maintained on the 100RT despite additional hardware required for Tier 4 final engine upgrades. Once on deck, routine checks on powertrain components and fluid levels are a snap with large swing-out doors and LED lighting that reveal the entire engine compartments. A centralized pressure check and grease bank located near the cab allows an operator to monitor multiple pressure and fluid workings from one centralized location. Foldable access ladders and upper guardrails provide reinforced safety boundaries.
The 100RT will transport with base unit fully equipped minus modular counterweights at 42,418 kg. The 100RT has an overall height of 3.91 m and can be driven right off a conventional lowboy trailer, assemble counterweight and be ready to go to work!
