The LK 80-160 has an 80-ton capacity, six-section, full power, 160-foot main boom. This boom features a new double-keel design that allows for a lighter, stronger boom than the four-plate it replaced. The crane has two single-stage cylinders that provide different operating modes: one focused on stability, and the other on structural capacity, making a better chart throughout.
Load King also introduced a brand new 58-foot bi-fold lattice swing-away jib, making the maximum tip height 228 feet. The Load King Stinger 80-160 will set up faster at the job-site due to the increased speed of the outriggers and retain the modern tilt-cab from the 80-126, previously known as the Crossover 8000. Several improvements to the hydraulic system enhance the operating characteristics of the crane under load.
The Load King Stinger 80-160 boom truck was recently featured at CONEXPO-CONAGG 2020.
