New Link-Belt Crane Debut!

Home / New Link-Belt Crane Debut!


The new Link-Belt HTC-86110 crane is base rated at 110 US-tons (90 mt)! The fundamentals of the 86110 evolve from the successes of the market leading HTC-86100 and will be a great addition to Link-Belt’s already dynamic hydraulic truck crane lineup.

Boom and attachments

The 86110 features a 164 ft. (50m) main boom that outreaches the truck crane competition and challenges European-built all terrain cranes in its class. The main boom tip height is 172.6 ft. (52.6m). The telescoping sections of the 6-section pin and latch boom ride on Link-Belt’s proven Teflon impregnated wear pads, which means there’s no need to grease the bottom of this boom. Plus, all the sheaves and both pins of the hoist cylinder feature sealed bearings as well.

Available is a 58 ft. (17.6m) on-board fly that features four offset positions of 2, 15, 30 and 45 degrees, and an innovative approach for erecting and stowing, focusing heavily on minimizing the number of times a ladder is needed. The fly also features an integrated 10 ft. (3.0m) fly that reeves up to 4-parts of line and is capable of 26 US-ton (21.7mt) lifts. The 10 ft. (3.0m) fly is ideal for applications where two load lines are necessary for lifting one load. Two additional 16 ft. (4.9m) lattice boom extensions bring the maximum tip height to 261.6 ft (79.7m). 


New Link-Belt CraneThe front and rear axle groups of the 86110 have a combined transport capacity of 107,250 lbs. (48.64mt) at highway speeds in excess of 60mph (96.5km/h) – a fully equipped crane can travel with its standard 16,000 lbs. (7.2mt) of counterweight without the need of a boom dolly. An additional 32,600 lbs. (14.7mt) of counterweight is offered bringing the maximum counterweight to 48,600 lbs. (22mt). With the overflow of counterweight being less than 45,000 lbs. (20.4mt), there is ample capacity on one-overflow truck for a tool box, rigging, mats, and more.

A fully equipped 86110 can reduce its transport weight to less than 90,000 lbs. (40.8mt) when all the counterweight is removed. It is boom dolly capable, and when traveling with a 3-axle boom dolly, a fully equipped 86100 with 36,000 lbs. (16.3mt) of counterweight can travel under 20,000 lbs. per axle.


Powering the HTC-86110 is a clean idle certified 450-horsepower (336kw) Cummins engine with 1,550 foot-pounds of torque for the North American market. There is also a Tier 3/Euro Stage IIIA engine available for regions outside of North America.  Both engines couple to ZF’s AS-tronic automated transmission with 12 speeds forward and two reverse. The controls for this transmission are similar to an automatic (no clutch pedal) and yet have the performance of a manual with automated pump dis-engagement for on-highway travel and jobsite maneuver modes.

The winch package delivers a maximum line pull of 20,739 lbs. (92.25kN) and can provide over 16,000 lbs. (71.17kN) of line pull up to the 4th layer, ideal for ¾ in (19mm) wire ropes that are line pull rated at 15,700 lbs. (69.83kN) and higher. The maximum line speed on the winch is 495 feet per minute (150.8 m/min) – impressive numbers when compared to other trucks and all terrain cranes in this class.

Comfort and convenience

New Link-Belt CraneThe operator’s cab includes power tilt range from 0 to 20 degrees and a pull-out “Cabwalk” for ease of entry. Once inside, the operator is treated to a five-way adjustable seat that holds light, yet responsive electronic controllers. The controllers are available in either a dual or single axis configuration and have a fine metering feature for precise operation. There is a designated foot pedal for boom telescope operation, something not found in other cranes in this size class. Also, the swing control allows the operator to free swing and utilize a foot pedal for smooth braking. Aiding the operator is the Link-Belt Pulse system with telematics, and cameras that automatically let you view winch operation and swing. Extra touches are heating, air-conditioning, and AM/FM radio with Bluetooth.

The driver’s cab features comprehensive gauges, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a clever place to store documents. Its fiberglass construction is Link-Belt proven and the interior is acoustically insulated. Cameras automatically let you view backing up and when making a right turn. Heating and air conditioning, AM/FM radio, cruise control, intermittent wiper with washer, and engine compression brake all come as standard equipment.

Night-time operation

A work lighting package is available and includes four (4) high intensity work lights mounted on top of the operator's cab, the right side of the superstructure facing forward, on the upper work platform, and on the left side of the superstructure facing out. Also available are single and dual boom floodlights, and remote control floodlights that work in conjunction with other floodlights options.
