Heavy lifter: the new TCC-1100 110-ton telescopic crawler crane

Link-Belt will unveil their all-new 110-ton (100-mt) TCC-1100 telescopic crawler crane at ConExpo, March 22–26, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The TCC-1100 is third in a growing lineup of Link-Belt telescopic crawlers, cementing the company’s presence in the market. Its design focuses on robustness, simplicity and reliability for the general contractor or bare rental fleet owner.

Boom up
The TCC-1100 will offer an impressive capacity chart at radius that rivals even lattice crawler cranes with a similar base rating. Its full power boom, fabricated from ultra-high-strength steel and formed in Link-Belt’s own facility, makes it fast and easy to operate. The main boom is 150 feet (45.7 m) long and incorporates Teflon wear pucks to eliminate boom grease.
Fly options include a 31–55-foot (9.4–16.7-m), three-piece bi-fold lattice fly and a 10-foot (3-m) heavy-lift fly. The heavy-lift fly swings and pins into place and is integral to one of the on-board fly options. It has over 20 tons (18.1 mt) of capacity and lift procedures for two-load-line picks. All flys offset to 2, 15, 30, and 45 degrees.

Smooth move
Of course, being a Link-Belt, the TCC-1100 moves quick and easy on or off the job site. It takes only four truckloads to transport. The main load weighs under 90,000 pounds (40 823.31 kg) and, on the trailer, is only 12 feet, eight inches (3.86 m) tall and 10 feet, six inches (3.2 m) wide. All overflow loads weigh less than 44,500 pounds (20 184.9 kg). Once onsite, the crane can be started and the carbody outrigger jacks deployed via remote control. On its outriggers, the crane sits wider than the competition for a rock-stable self-assembly platform. Tapered axles allow the sideframes to install easily and the 50,000 pounds (22 679.6-kg) of counterweight mount to the upper using Link-Belt’s proven and patented HSL lattice crane counterweight removal system.

For flexibility on even the tightest jobsites, the TCC-1100 can work at three different track gauges: 19 feet (5.8 m) fully extended, 14.4 feet (4.4 m) intermediate, and 12 feet (3.7 m) retracted. It has two travel speeds and can travel up to 1.7 miles per hour (2.7 kph) to spend less time traveling and more time lifting.

The Link-Belt TCC-1100 telescopic crawler is set to become any erection crew’s first choice out of the yard.

Power to perform
Powering the TCC-1100 is a Tier IV Cummins QSL engine producing 320 horsepower (239 Kw) and driving a variable displacement piston pump package. Simple and dependable pilot operated control valves distribute flow to all functions. Taking the flow are tried and tested Link-Belt hoist packages using piston motors and 7/8 inch (22 mm) rope. The winches have 21,022 pounds (9 535.4 kg) of line pull and a maximum line speed of 431 feet (131.4 m) per minute.

With the TCC-1100 being an excellent general contractor crane or a solid addition to a rental fleet, its moneymaking possibilities are prodigious. It’s ideal for bridge and steel erection, foundation work, railroad, wind energy and power transmission. Smooth, powerful and easy to move, this crane will see work in tough environments as well as general lift duties. Given a telescopic crawler’s uncanny ability to perform where no other crane can, the potential for the TCC-1100 is unlimited.

Other standout features of the TCC-1100:
* Tilting cab.
* Camera system for rear view and winches.
* 50,000 pounds (22 679.6 kg) of upper counterweight and 25,000 pounds (11 339.8 kg) of carbody counterweight.
* Upper guard rails.
* Cold weather package option.
* Supported 24/7 by Link-Belt Preferred including online manuals, literature, a ground bearing calculator, and 3D Lift Plan.

New Cat 313F L GC Excavator Maximizing Performance at a Low Cost Per Hour

The new Cat 313F L GC hydraulic excavator is designed for the user whose bottom line depends on reliable performance at a low cost per hour. The machine features an efficient C3.4B U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final engine that’s light on fuel—with no need for diesel exhaust fluid. It has a proven one-pump hydraulic system that makes everyday tasks like light excavating, spreading top soil, setting utilities, and fine grading floors easy to do. It also comes equipped with unique features like a stout and stable long undercarriage, a quiet and comfortable full-size Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) cab, and uncomplicated and easy-to-reach service points that will please operators and mechanics.

The 313F L GC's 70 horsepower (52 kW) engine provides all the power needed to run the machine’s hydraulic system. Fuel-conscious owners will like the choice of high power and economy modes to actively manage fuel consumption; they will also like the engine idle shutdown feature that stops the engine after a pre-set idling interval, which helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions and also extends service intervals and contributes to higher resale value by eliminating idle time from the hour meter.

CASE Unveils Tier 4 Final 621F and 721F Wheel Loaders

CASE Construction Equipment has announced that its 621F and 721F wheel loaders now meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards. Like the Tier 4 Interim models, each model is equipped with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) solution that treats emissions separately with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and does not require the engine to re-circulate exhaust gas. This proves extremely practical, as it improves fuel efficiency (up to 20 percent greater than previous solutions), lowers exhaust temperatures and fuel consumption, and provides excellent throttle response and simplified maintenance without sacrificing power. It also requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration or maintenance – optimizing uptime for greater productivity.

Each new Tier 4 Final wheel loader delivers best-in-class horsepower with a 6.7-liter engine. The 621F and 721F wheel loaders produce 162 and 179 net rated horsepower (121 and 133 kW), respectively. Both machines are also available with XT (tool carrier) or XR (extended reach) linkage and specialty configurations for even greater versatility and productivity.

Engine manufacturers take multiple approaches to meeting Tier 4 Final emissions standards

Cummins Integrated Tier 4 Final QSL9.
Cummins Integrated Tier 4 Final QSL9.

Implementing new standards for diesel engine emissions has been a priority of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the past two decades.

Emanating from the general principles of the 1955 U.S. Clean Air Act, a federal law designed to control pollution levels, the EPA rolled out a system of successively more stringent phases of emissions reduction, or “tiers” that must be followed by diesel engine manufacturers and makers of construction equipment used in non-highway applications. Diesel emissions from on highway vehicles including trucks and buses had been regulated prior to the introduction of EPA regulation of off-road construction equipment in the mid-1990s.

Putzmeister MX 34/38Z Placing Boom is being used to build vertically on the project.

Nova Scotia has long been a centre for artistic and cultural excellence. The new Nova Centre, a world-class, mixed-use development being built on two complete city blocks at the heart of the Argyle entertainment and financial district in Halifax, will reflect the community’s passion for culture. The project will comprise a financial centre, luxury hotel, residences, retail and entertainment amenities and a convention centre, parking and public space. The development will reach its maximum height of 200 feet (61 m) with the help of several pieces of Putzmeister equipment, including two innovative Putzmeister RS 850 Column Placing Systems.

With one million square feet (305,000 square metres) of mixed-use space, Nova Centre is the largest integrated development project undertaken in Nova Scotia’s history. The anticipated LEED Goldcertified development’s design was influenced by a public engagement process in which the proposed plans were shared with the community and the public was asked to share feedback and suggestions for improvement, ultimately resulting in the final plan.
