Product Description:

  • This lot contains a 1979 Link-Belt LS98A-40t Crane.
  • 120 foot of stick, however it has the original load chart for a 30 ton crane, which only allows to use 100 feet of stick.
  • The crane has both counterweights to make it a 40 ton, but the counterweight numbers were never submitted to the factory to get the load chart reassigned.
  • JIB, a ball, and a single sheave block.
  • All three cables were good as of the crane's last annual inspection.
  • 471 Detroit engine and has had glycol in the oil samples for years. It is still a good starter, but needs the idle adjusted.
  • It ran when parked, all functions, and gauges were working.
  • Hydraulic system functions with no known leaks.
  • Tracks are very loose, new pins required.
  • All safety devices functioned as of the last annual inspection.
  • See pictures/video for more details.
  • Personal inspections are recommended.
