Lexington, Ky.,-based Link-Belt has partnered with its sister company, Hitachi Sumitomo Construction Crane Co., to unveil the 45-ton TCC-450 telescopic crawler crane, merging the capability of a rough-terrain crane with the mobility and stability of a crawler crane. The TCC-450 (Circle 911) is a North American-compliant model and features the same bulletproof hydraulic components as Link-Belt’s renowned HYLAB series. Telescopic crawler cranes have long been accepted in power line and water-tank construction, as well as right-of-way, foundation and tieback work. Link-Belt has responded to customer requests and implemented numerous modifications for the North American market as a result of input from both customers and distributors alike.
