We are proud to be the authorized Link-Belt crane machinery dealer in the Pacific Northwest. With six locations throughout Washington and Oregon, Triad Machinery is never too far away and ready to equip your project with the necessary Link-Belt cranes, attachments, and service.
For a century, Link-Belt has been a design leader in crane technology. Although originally formed to engineer a better drive belt for heavy machinery, their first steam-powered crane was a breakthrough. By incorporating hydraulic, improved design, and increased safety during the following decades, Link-Belt established itself as the lace setter in material handling, both in form and function.
Don’t know what type of crane you need for your job application?
Here are a few places you may see cranes working today.
Rough Terrain Cranes (RTC) are hydraulically self-propelled mobile cranes mounted on an undercarriage with four rubber tires designed for pick-and-carry operations to be used in off-road conditions or “Rough Terrain” conditions. Compact and versatile, an RTC is the right fit for confined areas.
Rough Terrain Cranes are equipped with a hydraulic telescoping boom. Steering, drive modes, and crane functions are all operated from a single operator’s cab. These RTCs can be found working on construction sites where ground conditions are rugged, bridge and road projects, general contracting construction, utility, and infrastructure work.
These machines are the centerpiece for most crane rental outfits. These cranes must be transported from job site to job site on a lowboy trailer. Triad Machinery and Link-Belt Cranes offer nine (9) different RTC in their product line-up with capacities ranging from 50 – 160 U.S. tons.
Hydraulic Truck Cranes (HTC) are truck-mounted “on-highway” pieces of equipment. They consist of a hydraulic boom and upper mounted on a truck carrier chassis. Link-Belt Hydraulic Truck Cranes can reach highway speeds of 62 mph allowing them to make it to multiple job sites in one day.
These HTCs can be found doing taxi crane work and crane rental. Other applications include loading and unloading pieces of equipment and pouring or setting concrete panels. Outriggers are used to level and stabilize the crane for hoisting, making these cranes suitable for almost any job.
When equipped with all-wheel steering packages, the HTC is then referred to as a Hydraulic Truck Terrain Crane (HTT). Triad Machinery and Link-Belt Cranes offer six (6) different HTC/HTTs in their product line-up with capacities ranging from 60 – 110 U.S. tons.
With many of the same capabilities as the hydraulic truck cranes (outriggers, highway speed, maneuverability, steering packages, etc.), Hydraulic Truck Terrain Cranes (HTT) are able to move in extremely tight job site conditions.
Other applications include loading and unloading pieces of equipment and pouring or setting concrete panels. Triad Machinery and Link-Belt Cranes offer three (3) different HTTs in their product line-up with capacities ranging from 75 – 110 U.S. tons.
All-Terrain Cranes (ATC) are hybrid between a hydraulic truck crane and a rough terrain crane. These truck-mounted cranes have the benefits of fast speeds on public roads but offer superior off-highway mobility. These cranes have features including hydraulic suspension, rear steering capabilities, and additional axles to disperse the weight of the machines to meet regulations for highway travel.
These ATCs have outstanding lifting capacities and transportability. All-Terrain Cranes are perfect for remote construction sites with no road access such as oil and gas pipeline installation, thick precast concrete work, steel frames, and heavy lifting applications. Triad Machinery and Link-Belt Cranes offer three (3) different ATCs in their product line-up with capacities ranging from 175 – 275 U.S. tons.
Telescopic Crawler Cranes (TCC) are cranes mounted on an undercarriage with a set of tracks that provide stability and mobility. Telecrawler machines have multiple track configurations, thus eliminating the need for outriggers for stability. Unlike lattice crawlers, Telescopic Crawler Cranes use a telescoping hydraulic boom for hoisting applications
Versatile machines due to their telescoping boom, strong pick and carry capacities, and improved ground-bearing pressure. TCCs are ideal for foundation work (pile driving and drill rig support), oil and gas production, barge work, and general construction. Triad Machinery and Link-Belt Cranes offer five (5) different TCCs in their product line-up with capacities ranging from 50 – 250 U.S. tons.
Lattice Crawler Cranes (LCC) are cranes mounted on an undercarriage with a set of tracks that utilize a lattice boom for lifting. Designed for maximum reach and maximum capacity, the fixed boom length is raised and lowered by cables instead of cylinders. The lattice crawler crane is the best crane for large jobs requiring maximum lift capacity at a long radius.
Lattice Crawlers are excellent pieces of equipment to build bridges, roads, wind farms, and other utility projects. Lattice Crawlers have the ability to work with special attachments such as clamshells and draglines. Triad Machinery and Link-Belt Cranes offer seven (7) different Lattice Crawlers in their product line-up with capacities ranging from 80 – 300 U.S. tons.
