ALL Family of Companies Buys 17 Tadano Cranes | Construction News

The ALL Family of Companies has purchased two 450-ton capacity Tadano ATF 400G-6 hydraulic all-terrain cranes just one month after adding 15-ton capacity Tadano GR-550XL hydraulic rough-terrain cranes to its national fleet.

The investment in 17 new Tadano cranes in 60 days underscores ALL’s commitment to maintaining on of the industry’s broadest and most modern fleets.

The 450-ton capacity ATF 400G-6 is the Tadano's highest-capacity all-terrain crane and has a max lifting height of 402 ft. Its 198.6-ft. boom can lift loads that other cranes in its class would need a  suspension system to handle, says Tadano.

The 55-ton capacity GR-550XL RT features a full-power, four-section synchronized boom that telescopes from 35.1 ft. to 113.9 ft. ALL says the versatile and maneuverable mid-range RTs are especially good for daily rentals and city work. They will be used throughout ALL’s 37-branch network.

“Tadano makes extremely reliable equipment that our customers trust,” said Michael Liptak, president of the ALL Family of Companies. “These new mid- and large-capacity cranes will be very busy immediately upon their arrival.”

Liptak added that falling fuel prices are affecting the crane business in more ways than the reduction in travel expenses. “We are expecting to see lots of infrastructure projects like bridges, road work, and commercial construction that the 450-ton Tadano AT can easily get after. Lots of long-planned-for, though stalled, projects are finding their funding.”

Ron Dogotch, VP of sales for Tadano said, "It is a privilege to work with ALL as we continue to expand our relationship and provide Tadano's quality line of rough-terrain and all-terrain crane products for their rental fleet requirements."

The 17 Tadano cranes will be delivered to ALL throughout 2015. The two ATFs will be based at ALL’s Chicago, Ill., and Canadian branches.
