The Link-Belt 120|RT lifts steel in Kentucky, USA

Pennsylvania, USA-based McAdoo’s Towing & Crane Service chose a Link-Belt 120|RT rough terrain crane for a job to help connect a landfill site to a renewable natural gas pipeline in London, Kentucky.

The 120 US ton crane was put to work at the Laurel Ridge Landfill in Lily, KY, to help with construction of the gas-capture project. The project will use 16,000-pound tanks to store 1,800 cfm of gas collected from the landfill, to supply 450,000 MMBtu of natural gas annually to customers across the United States.

The 120|RT is being used to lift and precisely position the tanks, steel framework and ductwork.

McAdoo crane operator Jordan Miller said the 120|RT was the perfect crane for the job site due to its capacity at radius and ability to operate comfortably in close quarters.

“The Link-Belt 120|RT is really well-suited for this small construction site because of its compact size and excellent maneuverability in tight spaces,” Miller added.
