Thanks for any help.

Not familiar with Linkbelt models, but dimensions are similar to Bucyrus Erie models such as 19-B. Such machines weigh in around 19 or 20 tons, but may carry extra external counterweight as well.
Sure someone here knows Linkbelts, so perhaps if you post a photo you can get an ID and an accurate weight. Good luck with the project.

Used to run an LS 78, 98, and 108. The LS78 was 30 ton capacity,
I found a load chart for a LS58. With 30 foot boom and ABC counterweights it would lift 20,800 lbs. It has to weigh a bit more than twice the capacity so I'll guess around 50,000. Boom and counterweight slabs on 1 load and the balance on another and you should have no problems.

My book doesn't list a LS 60.
It lists a LS58 29,000#
LS 68 38,000#

I don't think my book goes back far enough, It doesn't show any with a gas engine.

Thanks for all the information. We have not moved it yet but when we
get it home we will take some pictures. We do not know how to post pictures
but we can email you some pictures. We only have to move it 8 miles.
We found the drive chains for it. They were taken off when they moved it.
We grow grapes for raisins and have been busy with the farming work.
Thanks,

John and Mike
