LBX recently announced the availability of the new Link-Belt 240 X2 Material Handler for specialty applications such as: scrap/material-handling, demolition, waste transfer and site prep.
With the option of linkage- or gooseneck-style attachments, this machine can be equipped with a variety of tools like dangling magnets and orange-peel grapples for scrap yards, trash grapples for construction and demolition debris, buckets for handling material fi nes, or shears and processors to handle tougher tasks.
Operators will have excellent visibility into truck bodies or containers such as rail cars with a cab that raises hydraulically to a full height of 18-feet 2-inches while still allowing for easy transport from job-to-job with a weight of approximately 70,000 lbs.
An optional cab anti-interference device is available to prevent the attachment tool from damaging the cab when it’s positioned at its furthermost point, and an operator protective guard is standard on the front of the cab. To also help prevent damage in harsh applications, the 240 has thick upper belly pans.
