Link-Belt Cranes has introduced the all-new 348 Series 2 300-ton (273-mt) lattice crawler crane. Over the years, Link-Belt’s 348 class of lattice crawler has been job proven on projects from Prudoe Bay, Ala., to Miami, Fla. Crane owners and operators will have a lot to like about the new 348 Series 2 300-ton (273-mt) lattice crawler crane. First shipments of the new 348 Series 2 will begin in the fourth quarter 2018 following final testing in Lexington, Ky.


Manufactured and assembled in North America with support around the globe, both Cummins QSL 9,350 hp Tier 4 Final and Tier III engine options are available and deliver efficient power to a Kawasaki pump and motor package for fast, responsive, fingertip control providing simultaneous operation wherever it is needed.

Dual swing motors provide dynamic control for the incredibly smooth free swing all Link-Belt HYLABS are famous for having. The operator can also dial swing speed up or down with volume speed controls in the cab.

Matching hydraulically driven main and auxiliary hoist drums utilize Link-Belt designed gear drives for either straight power-up/power-down auto brake mode or can also incorporate an optional “wet clutch” free fall feature, if required.  🍁
