Link-Belt 548 Crawler Crane Completes Luffer Tests

Luffer and all SAE conventional capacity tests on Link-Belt’s 500 t 548 lattice boom crawler crane are complete. Currently, machines on the test pads at Hitachi Sumitomo’s facility in Saijo, Japan, are completing function testing and load moment calibration and verification. Shipments into North America are planned for the second quarter of 2009.

Introduced at ConExpo in March 2008, the 548’s preliminary specifications place the heavy-duty boom at 24 – 84 m and the long-range boom at 42 – 108 m. Complete luffer specifications will be announced soon. Future testing will involve a heavy-lift attachment.
