April 8, 2014—To fulfill the demands of a surging crane rental market, the ALL Family of Companies is expanding its industry-leading fleet with the acquisition of four (4) all-terrain cranes from 165 to 450 USt and five (5) rough-terrain cranes from 65 to 150 USt.
The nine (9) new cranes include (1) Grove GMK6400 (450 USt/400 T), the industry's most powerful 6-axle all-terrain crane; (2) Grove GMK5165-2 (165 USt/130 T), a newer 5-axle all-terrain crane; (1) Grove RT9150E (150 USt/136 T), Grove's largest-capacity rough-terrain crane with the longest main boom (197 ft/60 m) on any current-production RT; (2) Grove RT770E (70 USt/65 T) rough-terrain cranes, newly launched at CONEXPO 2014; (1) Link-Belt ATC-3275 all-terrain crane (275 USt/250 T); and (2) Link-Belt RTC-8065 Series II (65 USt/60 T), a rough-terrain crane with a fully rigged transport weight of less than 90,000 lbs (41 kg).
The GMK6400 is one of Grove’s newest offerings and the lifting industry’s most powerful six-axle crane. Its offers the best load chart in its class and a variety of cutting-edge features that crane users won't find anywhere else. In addition to an innovative removable outrigger box and self-rigging auxiliary hoist, the self–rigging MegaWingLift™ attachment bumps up the capacity by nearly 70 percent. The GMK6400 will work out of the ALL Crane Rental of Florida branch in Tampa.
Recently introduced at CONEXPO 2014, Grove’s new RT770E (70 USt/65 T) rough-terrain crane offers the longest boom in its class at (138 ft/42 m) and is specially designed to give customers all the benefits of a traditional Grove RT plus extra-long reach. The cutting-edge designs of the boom and chassis make the RT770E lighter and easier to transport while maximizing both structural capacity and stability.
With significantly longer reach and capacity than the original 5165, Grove's GMK5165-2 has a 197-ft, 6-section, full-power MEGAFORM™ boom featuring the TWIN-LOCK™ pinning system, a hydraulic luffing jib, and maximum heights of 312 ft.
The Link-Belt ATC-3275, equipped with a maximum 223-ft/68-m, 7-section formed full power latching boom, offers excellent transportability and can be configured to meet some of the toughest transportation laws. The new ATC-3275 is headed for Central Rent-A-Crane in Elkhart, Ind., a member of the ALL Family of Companies.
"It has been a year marked by several landmark equipment deals," said Michael Liptak, ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. president. "We are seeing surging demand in all of our geographies and need to stay on top of our customers' local needs while still being able to react to regional and national crane contracts. This package helps us round out several of our local fleets," he added.
