For 2016 model year, the 140-ton (120-mt) HTC-3140 and HTC-3140LB hydraulic truck cranes from Link-Belt will receive feature upgrades along with emissions updates. The 581-hp (434-kW) carrier engine graduates to EPA 2013 on-highway requirements and 250-hp (186-kW) upper engine moves up to off-highway Tier 4 Final/Stage IV. It is also worth noting that both models will maintain an ultra-efficient twin engine platform.
The highlight of these upgrades is the addition of side-to-side suspension tilt which can go up to 4 degrees. An auto-lubrication system is a new feature on both the upper and carrier frames and “all temperature” hydraulic oil, lubrication and anti-freeze packages are now standard. Carrier cameras connected to viewing monitors in the cab offer an operator a rear view when backing up or a view of the right side of the carrier when making a right turn. Just like all of Link-Belt’s trucks and all-terrain cranes, the HTC-3140/LB now features:
• Link-Belt Pulse featuring telematics
• AM/FM radio with Bluetooth in operator’s cab
• Upper cameras automatically allow you to view winch operation and swing
• Document storage and AM/FM radio in composite driver’s cab
• Halogen daytime running headlights and LED lighting
• Illuminated compartments and controls for night-time operation
Transportability remains impressive on 2016 model HTC-3140 and HTC-3140LB. Carrying 6,000 pounds (2,721.5 kg) of counterweight on the back of this truck is nothing new in a 5-axle configuration, but now it is possible with a boom dolly. This means a well-equipped 195-foot (59.5-metre) boom “LB” version can carry 32,000 pounds (14 514.9 kg) of counterweight and still achieve transport loading below 20,000 pounds (9,071.8 kg) per axle. The 162-foot (49.3-metre) boom version in the same configuration can carry 39,000 pounds (17,690.1 kg) of counterweight and yield the same results.
