Link-Belt Cranes has released its 65|HT, a 55-mt capacity truck crane, which features a new four-section 11.2 to 35 meter full-power boom, reaching a maximum tip height of 38.1 meters. Additionally, the 65|HT has a new formed boom riding Link-Belt’s Teflon-impregnated wear pads, eliminating the need to grease the boom, and further reducing the time and cost of upkeep.

To comply with current emission standards, the 65|HT has an EPA 2021-certified Cummins L9 engine, which provides 194 kW at 2,000 RPM. Improved capacities over its predecessor, the HTC-8660 Series II, are delivered through three optimized boom extend modes, as well as an increased maximum counterweight to 482 kilograms. A fully equipped 65|HT can reduce its transport weight to less than 29,483 kilograms, with all counterweight removed.

Operator controls are available in a dual or single axis configuration and have a fine metering feature for precise operation. The 65|HT additionally features a total crane operating system, which utilizes 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.

To ensure operators can have improved visibility during travel, setup, and lifting, the 65|HT’s vision package includes cameras for winch-view, right-side swing view, rear-view backup, and right-side turn. The optional lighting package includes 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.
