ALL Adds 30 Cranes and Aerial Lifts to Fleet | Construction News

Strengthening its hand at both ends of the lifting market, the ALL Family of Companies began the final quarter of 2016 announcing the acquisition of large-capacity crawler cranes, boom lifts, and telescopic-boom forklifts. The two separate deals with leading-brand manufacturers Manitowoc and JLG will include 30 new machines.

The Manitowoc purchase includes two 275-USt Manitowoc 999 crawler cranes. Those cranes combine capacity, reliability, and versatility, and are in such high demand that one of the new cranes will head straight to a job in Ohio.

Also joining the crawler-crane fleet is a new 220-USt Manitowoc 14000, a versatile crane with a maximum reach of 462 ft. when equipped with luffing jib. “We are using them in steel mills, power plants, water treatment plants, wind farms, and many types of new construction. They can set steel and precast concrete, among a wide variety of other applications,” said Michael L. Liptak, president of ALL.

ALL Aerials, the company’s nationwide aerial-equipment division, continues to experience strong demand for its varied inventory of equipment. The company’s new JLG package includes 17 telescopic boom lifts offering horizontal reach ranging from 33 to 80 ft., as well as 10 JLG telescopic forklifts (telehandlers) ranging in capacity from 6,600 to 15,000 lbs. Telehandlers and boom lifts are maneuverable, efficient machines that offer real advantages on crowded job sites. Their power, versatility, and ability to work at awkward angles can directly and positively affect productivity.

“Our crawlers and aerials are in high demand,” explained Liptak. “We are really just responding to existing demand with these additional 30 units. We think the appetite for well-maintained, new-model equipment is always strong, so we define ourselves by our commitment to a modern, technologically-advanced fleet.”
