Link-Belt Introduces New 100 Ton Capacity Rough Terrain Crane

September 5, 2018 - Link-Belt, Lexington, Ky., is introducing the 100RT, a 100-U.S.-ton-capacity rough terrain crane with the longest full-power boom in that capacity class.

“There’s not a full-power boom out there that carries this capacity chart at radius,” said Brian Smoot, Link-Belt product manager for telescopic rough terrain cranes.

“This will be a dominant player for rental fleets, refineries, and plant work in general, handling longer radius with ease,” Smoot added.
The 100RT’s other notable features include Link-Belt’s newest operator cab, the Pulse 2.0 operating system that can receive remote software updates via Wi-Fi, the V-Calc asymmetrical outrigger system, a new simple-to-assemble fly jib, the latest Cummins Stage V-compliant engine, and Link-Belt’s Vision package.

The 100RT delivers outstanding reach with a five-section, 40.6 - 155 ft., full-power formed boom built to Link-Belt’s boom profile and tolerances at the company’s Lexington, Ky., factory. 

An optional two-piece, 35 - 58 ft., on-board lattice fly jib provides greater flexibility and reach. It can be assembled by one person and manually offset at 0°, 15°, 30°, and 45°. A 16-ft. lattice insert lengthens the jib to 74 ft. and provides a maximum tip height of 237 ft.

The 100RT’s Cummins QSB 6.7L diesel engine puts out up to 232 hp and complies both with Stage V and Tier 4 Final emission standards. The carrier features a six-speed transmission, four 29.5x25 tires, and axles mounted with greaseless four-link suspension that eliminates 10 previous grease points. Large access doors, centralized electrical boxes, centralized grease fittings, remote-mounted filters, and easy-access fluid checks make routine service easy.

Link-Belt will roll out the 100RT at CraneFest 2018 in early October. After rigorous on-site and field testing, shipments of the new 100-ton 100RT are scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2019.
