Link-Belt Cranes will continue to be a combined display with our sister company, Sumitomo Heavy Industries Construction Cranes Co., Ltd. (HSC). This approach serves the needs of both of our companies and helps minimize each company’s overall cost. Our recent experience, specifically following our CraneFest 2021 event, highlighted an increased interest in attendance, as people are ready to get out, see the latest equipment, and reengage with fellow industry members.
The long-awaited trade show for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment will return to the exhibition grounds in Munich October 24 – 30, 2022. Over half a million people will attend this year’s Bauma – the world’s largest construction trade fair. Reports from organizers at Messe Munchen state that all exhibitor space had been sold earlier this year.
The last Bauma was held pre-pandemic in 2019 with a total of 3,684 exhibitors and more than 600,000 visitors from 217 countries. Link-Belt Cranes will be displaying from Booth FS.903/3 at Bauma 2022.

The new Link-Belt 120|TT, base rated at 120-ton (110-mt), will debut at Bauma 2022, in Munich, Germany. The 120|TT telescopic truck terrain crane features reliable and user-friendly, all-wheel steer capability for optimum crane maneuverability in tight, jobsite settings. Steerable rear axle with super single tires are what make the 120|TT so agile with four steering modes – independent front, independent rear, combination, and crab.
Link-Belt Cranes first introduced the truck crane market to rear wheel steering on a custom truck crane chassis 20 years ago when it displayed the 60-mt (70-ton) HTT-8670 at ConExpo 2002. Link-Belt’s current lineup of truck terrain cranes has grown to include the 70-mt (75-ton) HTT-8675, 85-mt (100-ton) HTT-86100, and 100-mt (110-ton) HTT-86110.
The 85-ton (80-mt) 85|RT made its debut in North America last fall, at CraneFest 2021. A six-speed transmission on the 85|RT is powered by a Cummins Tier 4F QSB 6.7 270 hp (201 kW) diesel engine. The 85IRT includes a new drive train and counterweight removal system. The 85IRT comes with a full power, five-section 38 to 142- foot formed boom, built to Link-Belt's specific boom profile and tolerances. An available two-piece Link-Belt patented 35 to 58-foot SmartFly provides greater flexibility and range, and manuaJly offsets at 0, 15, 30 and 45 degrees.
The 80-ton (75-mt) Link-Belt TCC-800 telescopic crawler crane made its initial debut at ConExpo 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its predecessor, the top selling telecrawler TCC-750, has been a cornerstone of the telecrawler market since its initial debut in 2008. The TCC-800 comes with a new four-section 38 ft. – 120 ft. (11.8 – 36.5 m) full-power boom that reaches a maximum tip height of 184.5 ft. (56.2 m) with full boom and Link-Belt’s SmartFly pinning system. Link-Belt SmartFly helps ensure proper fly erection and stowage sequence while minimizing work at height. This SmartFly system continues to get high marks from industry owners. The TCC-800 offers optional one or two-piece 35 – 58 ft. (10.6 – 17.6 m) fly.
