2001 Link Belt 25T Articulating Trucks.

Wondering what the common problems are, or the issues.


I realize Volvo's are by far the best. But this truck is the right price.


It's a long shot that anyone has experience with them...but..

I have never seen a Link Belt ADT it must be one of the first version before they went to Terex.

How many hours are on this thing and where did it come from originally.

Pretty sure link belt and case adt's are the same...
that being said i have briefly run a case adt, and while it wasnt no volvo it did the job with no problems.

3000 hours on a 2001 seems a little odd but could be true, and with only 3000 hours its hardly broken in!

I believe that the Link Belt Artic is the same as the orginal series CASE Artic. Link Belt got out of the line but parts would be available through the CASE network I would think, in addition to link belt. I have run the CASE artic. Nice trucks, stable, good power, the rams are mounted inside the frame which is a good idea I think. I would not be afraid of one.

Looks like they both have the cummins and ZF transmissions in them , so i may be correct in saying they are very similar if not the same.

If gravel is correct and they are the Terex units , I know the 6th gen (i believe) terex adt's had known transmission problems.

I dont think ZF trannys are garbage. Their components are in a lot of different OEM's machines.
