Early reports from AEM (Association of Equipment Manufacturers) and ConExpo-CON/AGG 2023 report attendance numbers of 139,000; a 6 percent uptick from 2020 figures of the Las Vegas-based show held every three years.

Link-Belt Cranes displayed its all-new 300|AT 300-ton all-terrain crane, as well as newly announced 120-ton 120|HTLB which boasts a main boom length of 197 ft. Also on display were the new 218|V (five) lattice crawler crane, 55-ton TCC-550 telescopic crawler crane and 85-ton 85|RT rough terrain crane which featured Link-Belt’s patent-pending battery powered APU (auxiliary power unit).

Link-Belt gave show-goers three daily demonstrations, going over new product and an in-person demonstration of its long-time success story, Link-Belt SmartFly, which is now found across Link-Belt’s telescopic crane product lineup.

“We have had a great response from customers and distributors here at ConExpo 2023. There’s a lot to be excited about going forward for this year, and into 2024,” said Link-Belt’s North American Sales Manager, Gary Lane. “You really get a pulse of the crane market when you get the chance to get everyone together like this and it’s a great opportunity to clear the way for long-term goals and growth for the next 18-24 months.”
