Rough Terrain Crane Information

Link-Belt RTC-8080

Max Cap 80 US Tons
Boom 41-127 ft

The Link-Belt RTC-8080 rough terrain crane has a maximum load of 80 tons. It has a full power boom, with market leading capacity for its class, with a maximum length of 127 feet and a maximum jib length of 64 feet.

The RTC-8080 is powered by a Cummins 6BT 5.9L engine, along with a fully automatic 12 speed transmission, with 8 speeds forward and four reverse. The rear axle disconnects for two or four wheel drive, as well as automatically disconnecting in fifth gear or above. 

The full power 4 section boom can be controlled easily by an operator in the newly designed cab. The cab features increased visibility and amenities compared to previous models, such as optional integral air conditioning, to make sure the operator can focus on the job and not be distracted by discomfort. The crane also has 4 modes of steering to easily maneuver through jobsites.

The cab is easily accessible by access ladders, which decreases risk for injury while trying to enter the cab. Another amenity to help operators focus on the job is the 4‑Link suspension on the rear axle with an optional Hydro-Gas Ride™ system. The Hydro-Gas Ride system allows for smoother operation of the crane and more comfort while the crane is mobile.

The counterweight system of the RTC-8080 consists of one or two 9600 pound counterweights. Giving the crane multiple counterweights allows for project managers to save on shipping costs if their project does not require two counterweights, and to be sure they have enough counterweight to complete each job.

Like all new Link-Belts, the RTC-8080 utilizes self-lubricating technology in the boom pads, eliminating the need for grease. It also includes large swing out engine hood doors for easy maintenance.
