The ALL Family of Companies, headquartered in Cleveland, OH, has announced the purchase of six Link-Belt 250-USt (227 mt) TCC-2500s.
Initial machine delivery will begin in March 2017 and remaining deliveries will be spread through mid-2018.
ALL, a longtime Link-Belt customer, has taken the first order of every telecrawler model that Link-Belt has introduced, including the TCC-750 (75 USt/70 mt) at Link-Belt’s CraneFest in 2009, and the TCC-1100 (110 UST/100 mt) at CONEXPO/CON/AGG 2011, and the TCC-500 (50 USt/51mt) in 2014.
The ALL Family is one of the world’s largest privately held crane rental companies, offering an extensive, technologically advanced fleet of lifting equipment at branches strategically located across North America. They plan to distribute the new cranes among the yards to support immediate needs for daily and long-term rentals.
“We didn’t hesitate to make our decision to purchase this new crane. Link-Belt telecrawlers have been significant contributors to our fleet. The new 2500 takes everything that is great about Link-Belt telecrawlers and combines it with an unmatched new combination of reach and capacities,” said Michael L. Liptak, president of the ALL Family.
The new TCC-2500 expands the top end of Link-Belt Construction Equipment’s telescopic crawler crane lineup, which now boasts five models ranging from 50 USt to 250 USt. When first introduced in 2005, the Link-Belt telecrawler products won immediate praise as a niche market solution to ease off-road maneuvering common in power-line utility applications, but they have quickly proven their worth in rental and general construction fleets both domestically and abroad.
“This product lineup has come a long way in a short time to become the clear, dominant supplier in North America, and Link-Belt is proud to have a telecrawler that meets the needs of a crane rental house like ALL. We’re happy to have them step up to the plate again in such a big way for this new TCC-2500,” said Skeeter Collins, Link-Belt North American sales manager.
