Crane Talk: Over 30,000 Engine Hours on LS-138H

In this Crane Talk episode, we follow the past of an LS-138H – Link-Belt’s first ever all-hydraulic lattice crawler crane sold by Link-Belt in 1987.

That particular LS-138H was a display model at ConExpo 1987 and purchased by Hubbs Contractors of Camden, TN. Eventually, the crane came under the ownership of Bell Construction of Brentwood, TN and we recently followed it to an Interstate 55 project in Memphis in late 2023 – over 36 years and 30,000 engine hours since its original purchase.
