600SA, a division of the EIE Group has delivered the first Link-Belt Cranes to South African state-owned armaments procurement agency, Armscor, for use at the Simon’s Town dockyard in the Western Cape.
The machines will be utilized for shifting and lifting at the dockyard. The two Link-Belt RTC-8065 Series II mobile rough terrain cranes were recently handed over by 600SA. Included with the cranes was a service agreement for the life span of the machines.
Link-Belt RTC-8065 Series II cranes feature a nominal capacity of 60 mt. The crane features an 11.6 to 35.0 m telescopic greaseless boom (no grease required) along with an offsettable bi-folding fly offering four offset positions 2°, 15°, 30°, and 45° providing a tip height of 64.5 m.
The crane’s flat deck design with integrated steps and handholds, significantly improves operator safety. A next generation ergonomically designed operators cab provides for superior visibility, operator comfort, and ease of operation. Large swing out engine hood doors have been designed for the ease of access and serviceability of the engine.
Link-Belt’s 4-Link suspension on the rear axle produces an optimum ride compared to other rough terrain cranes. The 4-mode steering controlled from the steering wheel, improves handling, manoeuvrability and improves turning radius.
“600SA and Link-Belt Cranes were pleased to be able to deliver a superior product at a good value to Armscor,” says EIE Group CEO, Gary Neubert. “This latest order is the welcoming continuation of our business relationship with a valued client and testimony to our success in building long-term relationships.”
600SA is the distributor of Link-Belt Cranes offering a wide range of cranes to include rough terrain cranes, hydraulic truck cranes, telescopic crawler cranes and lattice boom cranes and all-terrain cranes to fulfill the needs of their customers in South Africa and 12 other countries across Africa.
