ALL Family of Companies Adds Eight Units from Manitowoc

January 24, 2018

More MLC650s and award-winning Grove TMS9000-2 are highlights

January 24, 2018—The ALL Family of Companies is once again expanding its fleet with the purchase of eight cranes from respected manufacturer Manitowoc. The package includes two each of the MLC650 crawler, Grove TMS760E truck-mounted crane, and Manitowoc 999 crawler, plus two more truck-mounted units: a Grove TMS800E and the all-new Grove TMS9000-2. The deal punctuated the final quarter of 2017. Upon receipt, the cranes will be deployed across the company’s network of branches, targeting markets where they are in the highest demand.

When ALL initially acquired two MLC650s last fall, the large-capacity crawlers proved extremely popular with customers, providing impetus for the acquisition of additional units. The MLC650 has a 716-USt capacity and features Variable Position Counterweight™ (VPC™) technology that automatically positions the crane’s counterweight to match lifting demands. VPC helps reduce the operating footprint, minimizes ground preparation, and reduces matting, adding up to a potential savings of thousands of dollars per month on longer-term projects.

“This capacity — 700 to 900 USt — is in high demand across all geographies and in multiple sectors,” said Rick Mikut, crawler crane division manager for the ALL Family of Companies. “The MLC650’s large capacity and site-friendly ground bearing pressure will ensure these new units will be deployed almost immediately for energy-related projects, including refineries, petrochemical installations, and power plants.”

Of no less importance, although at the opposite end of the capacity range for this crane package, ALL is excited to take delivery of its first Grove TMS9000-2 truck cranes, which recently made headlines when it was named to Construction Equipment magazine’s “Top 100 of 2017.” Manitowoc developed the TMS9000-2 with the input of customers and dealers to create a crane that delivers in real-world applications. It is a 115-USt capacity truck crane that is significantly lighter than similar models, making it easily configured for local roadway weight limits. It has a longer 169-foot main boom with jib options available. Strength was boosted by 5 percent across the load chart.

“Our truck cranes are an important part of our taxi rental fleet — the in-and-out work that is really important to our business — and Manitowoc is doing a great job reinventing these TMS units to keep them strong and increasingly more roadworthy,” said Michael L. Liptak, president of ALL. “And our crawler division is booming right now, perhaps seeing the highest demand in a decade. Our new “triple 9s” and MLC650s are a direct response to this need. We will continue to define our response to this demand by our commitment to a modern, technologically advanced fleet,” explained Liptak.
