Link-Belt has introduced its new 55-mt-capacity truck crane, the 65|HT, which is intended to replace the HTC-8660 Series II.
The 65|HT comes with a new four-section, 11.2–35 m full-power boom that reaches a maximum tip height of 38.1 m. The crane boasts an all-new formed boom riding Link-Belt’s Teflon-impregnated wear pads, meaning there is no need to grease the boom – reducing the time and cost of upkeep.
The 65|HT features the next generation of emission standards with an EPA 2021 certified Cummins L9 engine that provides 260 hp at 2,000 rpm. Improved capacities over its predecessor are delivered through three optimised boom extend modes and an increase in maximum counterweight to 8,482 kg. Operator controls are available in either a dual or single axis configuration and have a fine metering feature for precise operation.
The crane is also equipped with Link-Belt Pulse, a Link-Belt-designed operating system that utilises an in-cab display as a readout and operator interface with on-board diagnostics including the rated capacity limiter, wind speed, boom length and angle, radius of load, and crane configuration, just to name a few.
In addition, durable textured and slip-resistant paint on all walking surfaces improves durability and footing. Vision package consists of cameras for winch-view, right-side swing view, rear-view backup, and right-side turn, giving the operator excellent jobsite visibility during travel, setup, and lifting.
The optional lighting package offers a high-intensity LED work light mounted on the operator’s cab, two fixed LED lights and a remote-controlled articulating spotlight mounted on the boom base. A fully equipped 65|HT can reduce its transport weight to less than 29,483 kg with all counterweight removed.
