Major Acquisition Includes Rough Terrain, Crawler, and Truck CranesALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. has added a total of 66 new Link-Belt cranes to its national fleet. The package deal includes 14 truck cranes, 32 rough terrain cranes, and 20 crawler cranes.Of the package and, in particular, the size of the deal, Michael Liptak, president of the ALL Family of Companies, says, “It’s a huge deal, but a regular part of our annual fleet expansion. Doing such a large package here in the first quarter reflects more on the surging appetite for cranes.”The ALL Family has 34 branches spread strategically across its North American footprint, and the new cranes will be delivered and distributed among the branches starting immediately and continuing through 2013. Adds Liptak, “The 66 machines are a big buy. Spread out to our branches, the cranes will immediately start answering local needs, from daily rentals to major projects begging for longer-term rentals.”Crane rental demand is high in all sectors as the economy gradually returns to health. That said, ALL boasts one of the industry’s largest and most technologically advanced fleets, but “we need to be able to meet surging demand. I’m appreciative of Link-Belt. They are important partners and really worked hard to get this package done,” concludes Liptak.The new models include:Telescopic Truck Cranes(6) HTC-8660 Series II, 60 tons (50 mt)(4) HTC-8675 Series II, 75 tons (70 mt)(4) HTC-86100, 100 tons (85 mt)RTs(20) RTC-8065, 65 tons (60 mt)(12) RTC-8080, 80 tons (75 mt)Lattice Crawlers(4) 138 HSL, 80 tons (73 mt)(8) 218 HSL, 110 tons (100 mt)(2) 238 HSL, 150 tons (137 mt), equipped with the 238 luffing jib(6) 248 HSL, 200 tons (182 mt) About ALLSince 1964, the ALL Family of Companies has grown to become one of the largest crane and equipment rental companies in North America.
