Link-Belt 298 Series 2

Manufacturer Link-Belt has announced their new lattice boom crawler crane, the 298 Series 2. It is based on the technical specifications of 298 HSL that was introduced in 2007 but features a new boom design.

The new boom allows the working combination boom tip section to remain in place when transitioning from service to luffing mode with a maximum combination of 180ft (55m) of luffing boom and 195ft (59m) of luffing jib.

In order to provide a quick conversion from conventional-style lifting to a luffing configuration, the assembly has been simplified with semi-bore weldments for pin locations, point-to-use storage provisions for all components and stop bolts for quick pin alignment.
