Matched sizes of main and auxiliary winches provide equal maximum available line pulls of 16,200 lbs. (7 348 kg) and maximum line speeds of 474 f.p.m.<br><br> (144 m/min.) on 17" (.43 m) root diameter grooved drums. Computer-Aided Design Link-Belt has pursued a course of 8continuous innovation 9 to set new standards for hydraulic crane design...design originals that improve reliability and performance. Advanced, high speed computer-aided, state-of-the-art designs are measured by their reliable performance through extensive testing and re-testing before Link-Belt endorses a new idea, assuring the customer of real user value& maximum on-the-job performance.<br><br> State-Of-The-Art Oil Seal Technology The RTC-8050 features improved seals on boomhoist, boom extend/retract, and outrigger jack cylinders. This new 8redundant 9 oil seal technology incorporates 3 rod sealing surfaces versus one or two found on competitive models. This new seal design is highly resistant to side loading and pressure spikes for outstanding sealing performance and, when incorporated with full o-ring face seal 8ORFS 9 technology used throughout the machine, leads to an environmentally dry system.<br><br> Diagnostic Kit Confined Area Lifting Capacities (CALC TM ) System The RTC-8050 rough terrain crane is specifically designed to allow contractors to work in confined work areas where full outrigger extension is not possible. The CALC system provides the operator with three outrigger positions (full extension, intermediate, and fully retracted). Outriggers may be extended to an intermediate position where working area is limited or, in extremely tight quarters, lifts can be made with outriggers fully retracted.<br><br> In the fully retracted outrigger mode, lift capacities are significantly improved over the 8on tires 9 configuration because of the ability to fully level the machine, no matter the ground conditions. Industry first innovations... The outrigger position levers (located on the outrigger boxes) are easily applied.<br><br> Once the levers are engaged, the operator can set the crane in the intermediate or fully retracted outrigger mode without having to leave the cab. Under full extension, the outrigger beams extend to a wide 22' 0" (6.71 m) spread centerline to centerline. Centerline to centerline spread dimension for intermediate outriggers measures 15' 6" (4.72 m) and 9' 3/4" (2.76 m) for fully retracted...narrow enough to fit in extremely tight working areas but with the stability and capacities provided by being set on outriggers.<br><br> A thorough, easy-to-read crane rating manual gives the operator comprehensive capacities covering the three outrigger positions with all attachments plus 8pick and carry 9 capacities. The CALC System...another industry innovation from Link-Belt designed for exceptional customer value. Fully Retracted Outriggers 9' 3/4" (2.76 m) spread Fully Extended Outriggers 22' 0" (6.71 m) spread Intermediate Extended Outriggers 15' 6" (4.72 m) spread A customer benefit which enhances the 8050 9s performance and provides the operator the capability to match the crane 9s configuration to specific jobsite conditions.<br><br> For maximum tip height the basic boom extension mode offers a full power, synchronized mode of telescoping all sections proportionally to 110' 0" (33.53 m) . To enhance performance, the exclusive A -max mode (or mode 8A 9) extends only the inner mid section to 60.3' (18.38 m) offering substantially increased capacities for in-close, maximum capacity picks.
