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.
