The Machine:

A completely new entry into the 275-300 ton class is Link-Belt’s 348 HYLAB 5 lattice boom crawler crane.  This crane is positioned to outperform and exceed all of the cranes in its weight range.  The versatility of its patented Max Trax gauge widening system allows the 348 to outperform cranes a tonnage class higher than its own.
The 348 H5 has the same narrow gauge –19 feet two inches (5.8 m) as other 275-ton machines when retracted, but with the patent pending Max-Trax system, the crane can be assembled in the extended mode to a track gauge of 22 feet, significantly increasing the lifting platform.  This HYLAB (Hydraulic Lattice Boom) crane features a large, tilting cab, a new SML-10 load moment indicator, slab-type counterweights, big engine horsepower and a remote hydraulic oil cooler. Already a favorite of equipment operators this machine is sure to be a “Classic.”

The Model:

Created in a strictly limited, one time edition, each of these cranes was hand crafted from hundreds of individually investment cast, etched and formed brass components. Our 348 H5 model crane came equipped with 110’ of scale boom, a fully detailed engine, free rolling tracks, working track tensioners, a 4-way positionable cab and a working access panel that reveals a storage compartment and hydraulic filters.  Folding steps on the track frames and a working safety latch on the hook are just some of the other incredible details to be found on this model.  Boom extension kits were available for this model with a choice of an additional 100’ or an additional 190’, allowing for up to 300’ of total boom length.  Each model was individually serial numbered and came with a signed certificate of authenticity.

205 of the 300 models produced were painted in Link Belt’s well recognized factory white, red and black paint. 50 models were painted in Marco Crane Care’s yellow body and black boom color scheme with correct Marco logos and markings.  Each of these models was shipped with 300’ of scale boom.  The remaining 45 models in the edition were painted in Dielco Crane’s highly recognizable orange and black with accurate logos and markings.
