Lexington, KY (December 6, 2010)—Link-Belt unveiled their all-new 110-ton (100-mt) TCC-1100 telescopic crawler crane at ConExpo, March 22–26, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The TCC-1100 is third in a growing lineup of Link-Belt telescopic crawlers. Its design focuses on robustness, simplicity and reliability for the general contractor or bare rental fleet owner.
The TCC-1100 offers a capacity chart at radius that rivals even lattice crawler cranes with a similar base rating. Its full power boom, fabricated from ultra-high-strength steel and formed in Link-Belt’s own facility.. The main boom is 150 feet (45.7 m) long and incorporates Teflon wear pucks to eliminate boom grease.
Fly options include a 31–55-foot (9.4–16.7-m), three-piece bi-fold lattice fly and a 10-foot (3-m) heavy-lift fly. The heavy-lift fly swings and pins into place and is integral to one of the on-board fly options. It has over 20 tons (18.1 mt) of capacity and lift procedures for two-load-line picks. All flies offset to 2, 15, 30, and 45 degrees.
It takes only four truckloads to transport. The main load weighs under 90,000 pounds (40 823.31 kg) and, on the trailer, is only 12 feet, eight inches (3.86 m) tall and 10 feet, six inches (3.2 m) wide. All overflow loads weigh less than 44,500 pounds (20 184.9 kg). Once onsite, the crane can be started and the carbody outrigger jacks deployed via remote control. Tapered axles allow the sideframes that weigh 50,000 pounds (22 679.6-kg) of counterweight mount to the upper using Link-Belt’s proven and patented HSL lattice crane counterweight removal system.
For flexibility on even the tightest jobsites, the TCC-1100 can work at three different track gauges: 19 feet (5.8 m) fully extended, 14.4 feet (4.4 m) intermediate, and 12 feet (3.7 m) retracted. It has two travel speeds and can travel up to 1.7 miles per hour (2.7 kph) to spend less time traveling and more time lifting.
The Link-Belt TCC-1100 telescopic crawler is set to become any erection crew’s first choice out of the yard.
