LBX Company is pleased to announce the introduction of the Link-Belt Spin Ace® Series minimum swing radius excavators with Tier III engine technology. Available models include the 75SA, 80 Swing Boom, 135SA and 225SA with operating weights ranging from 17,500 to 53,800 lbs. Spin Ace excavators are designed to perform big jobs in tight spaces such as traffic restricted road maintenance or other jobs with limited maneuvering space. The 75 and 80 Spin Ace models come standard with a blade attachment and the 75 has an optional offset boom attachment for working on existing foundations or wherever space is limited. A blade option and rubber tracks are new for the 225SA, and also available for the 135SA.
Completely re-engineered Isuzu EPA certified Tier III engines meet the strictest emission regulations with Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology to lower Nox and PM. With an increase in horsepower across the board, these engines actually burn less fuel than ever before. A turbocharger and intercooler are standard on all models. Isuzu engines in Link-Belt excavators are built with long life in mind. Equipped with glow plugs, these engines have exceptional cold-startâ€ capability. As a testament to their quality, all Isuzu engines carry a 2-year, 3,000-hour warranty, whichever comes first1.
The Spin Ace® series features a wide, low-noise cab design with expanded leg and elbow room. Silicon-filled isolation mounts float the entire cab to greatly reduce operator fatigue. Large entry door and access width makes entering and exiting the cab a breeze.
The KAB 515 seat slides independently of the control consoles to assure optimal joystick positions at all times. The semi-bucket seat provides firm support and comfort with adjustable armrests, adjustable seat suspension, adjustable lumbar support and durable urethane cushions. The entire platform can then be moved forward or backward for best foot pedal positioning. This cab provides great visibility. A large sunroof allows the operator to view overhead, and large safety glass windows encompass the entire cab. With built-in washer and intermittent speed control, the wiper keeps your windshield clear, whatever the weather conditions.
Spin Ace® minimum swing excavators provide exceptional climate control with standard heating and air conditioning. High flow air circulation provides optimal operator comfort. Convenient vents direct air to the face or to window defrost. Other comfort features include an AM/FM stereo radio, cup holder, cigarette lighter, ashtray and a 12-volt accessory outlet for your phone, two-way radio, etc.
Link-Belt™s Extended Maintenance Systemâ€ extends lube intervals to 6 months or 1,000-hours for all attachment pivot points2. With a 5,000-hour hydraulic oil change interval and a 2,000-hour filter replacement interval, the owning and operating costs of the Spin Ace excavators are likely the lowest in the industry.
Ground-level access to remote-mounted filters means filters can easily be changed. And to help prevent spills, filters are mounted vertically. Additionally, an engine oil drain green plugâ€ has a spring-loaded release and drain hose for an easier, more environmentally friendly oil change.
