Link-Belt LS-238H Crane Overview and Specifications

The Link-Belt LS-238H is a hydraulic powered lattice boom crawler crane. Its compact design makes transport easier and 1‑hour self-assembly makes it easy to start right away without a helper crane.

The LS-238H has a max. lifting capacity of 136 metric tons (150 U.S. tons). The conventional boom can reach up to 73.15 m (240 ft). The combination of boom and offsettable jib the max. reach is 64.01 m + 21.34 m (210 ft + 70 ft), a tip height of 85.65 m (281 ft). The luffing boom max. length is 50.29 m (165 ft) and reaches 54.86 m (180 ft) of luffing jib and using the fixed jib the tipping height is 105.77 m (347 ft).

The LS-238H features a high-power Cummins Tier4 QSB6.7 6 cylinder diesel engine with a 122-gallon fuel tank, pushing 270 HP/2,000 rpm. The crane uses a hydraulic pump system, the pump arrangement is designed to provide hydraulically powered functions allowing positive, precise control with independent or simultaneous operation of all crane functions. All hoist motors are equipped with counterbalance valves to provide positive load lowering and prevent accidental load drop if the hydraulic pressure is suddenly lost.

The crawler mounting lower frame is an all-welded construction frame with precision machined surfaces for turntable bearing and rotating joint. Each side frame contains a pilot controlled, bi‐​directional, axial piston motor and a planetary gear reduction unit to provide positive control under all load conditions. The jack system contains four hydraulic cylinders individually pinned on swing-out beams.

The cab has an ergonomic design and insulated against noise and vibration giving the operator comfort for those long working hours. The HSL rated capacity limiter system is a boom hoist load cell system. This system provides the operator with useful geometrical data of the components of the crane.
