Link-Belt 120RT Rough Terrain Crane: TRUE 120-TONNER IMPRESSES ON RANGE AND FLEXIBILITY

Link-Belt’s new 120RT rough terrain crane offers a true 120-ton lift chart along with work tools and operator comfort features that ensure productivity and efficiency.
The six-section, pin-and-latch formed boom provides outstanding reach (38.3 164.1 feet). For even greater flexibility and range (35-58 feet), Link-Belt offers a two-piece onboard offsettable fly that manually offsets at 0, 15, 30 and 45 degrees.
Link-Belt’s V-CALC system provides operators with realtime 360-degree charts for 81 outrigger configurations. Once the outriggers are set, the system indicates the crane’s available capacity and previews the operator’s real-time capacities based on the crane’s current configuration at the next five radiuses for a set boom angle.
Powered by a 232-horsepower Tier 4 Final Cummins engine and six-speed transmission, the 120RT has a new winch design with ultra-wide drums for increased line pull at higher working layers. The 120RT’s winch line pull of 23,632 lbs. accommodates many applications and needs.
There are six access points to the carrier deck with ergonomic ladders. The operator has easy access to the flat deck from the cab, no matter the slew angle, and the deck is covered with a new slip-resistant paint.
The 120RT has the same cab design that Link-Belt introduced with the 75RT in 2017. The cab offers better visibility and operator comfort with a high-capacity HVAC system, ergonomic seats, and better lighting. The cab, which tilts to 20 degrees, uses “plug and play” assembly for all electrical components.
This rough terrain crane is also outfitted with the tools to get the job done, day or night. That includes dual amber strobe lights, LED working lights and outrigger lights. Work platforms on the upper have guardrails, and the camera vision package includes a backup camera and cameras with a view of the winches and the right side of the upper.
Link-Belt continues to focus on ease of transport with the 120RT. The base unit weighs 94,477 lbs. without the modular counterweights, so under-100,000-pound rules apply. The crane can be deployed from a conventional lowboy and be ready to work as soon as the counterweight is assembled.
