ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. Announces Major Manac Trailer Purchase

September 4, 2014

CLEVLAND, September 4, 2014 -- ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. has added 108 new Manac specialty trailers to its fleet, a significant acquisition that broadens the company's ability to offer complete door-to-door crane service. Of the 108 total specialty trailers, 104 feature galvanized steel decks for reduced maintenance and resistance to chips, scratches and wear, particularly corrosion caused by road salt and brine.

 
"We'll see a great return on our investment in galvanized steel trailers," said John Bacci, logistics director, ALL Family of Companies. "Over the life of a trailer, we can do a lot in our shops to extend the life of our fleet -- rebuild brakes, wooden decks, electric lines, etc. But we won't have to completely rebuild these new, galvanized units because they are just that much more durable."
 
The company estimates these trailers will remain a vital part of its fleet for three times longer than regular painted trailers. "That's a significant life-cycle upgrade," said Bacci, "this durability will make a positive impact for our northern branches that endure brutal winters, but also for branches in the Gulf region, where ocean air can really corrode metal."
 
The order includes 100 step-deck trailers, including fifty 45-foot units with close tandem wheels, which are ideal for accompanying the company's "taxi crane" fleet to job sites. "Taxi cranes," a daily crane rental fleet, require greater mobility and maneuverability, and are meant especially for city work. Another 50 of the Manac trailers were 48-foot spread axle units, we can get 20,000 pounds per axle anywhere in the United States, so long as we don't exceed a maximum weight of 80,000 pounds for the entire load," explains Bacci.
 
"Manac Inc. makes a great product, and we are satisfied with their service," said Michael Liptak, ALL Erection & Crane Rental president. "They know us well and apply that knowledge to customize the units for us."
 
ALL offers its own fleet of trucks and trailers for transporting cranes so customers' projects stay on schedule. This capability is part of ALL's complete service model that includes lift planning, logistics, transport and heavy hauling, the industry's best-trained operators, disassembly, and 24/7 service from ALL yards strategically located throughout North America.
