All Crane Buys 42 More Link-Belt Cranes


Nov. 7, 2023 - Just six months after buying 20 Link-Belt cranes, the ALL Family of Companies is tripling up by ordering 42 more.


Cranes from this second order are expected to be delivered throughout 2024.


The order includes rough-terrain, telescopic-crawler, lattice-boom crawler, and hydraulic truck cranes in capacities from 55 USt to 250 USt.


Highlighting the purchase are 13 teleboom crawlers, including three 250-USt capacity TCC-2500s, strengthening All’s hand in a category the company believes it already dominates.


All’s order also adds 10 mid-range-capacity lattice-boom crawlers, and also eight truck cranes that will bolster the company’s taxi-crane fleet.


Completing the order are 12 rough-terrain cranes with capacities from 65 USt to 160 USt.


“The package is further evidence of All’s commitment to continuous investment and offering the most modern fleet to our customers,” said Steve Freckmann, general manager of Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, a member of the All Family of Companies. “Adding 62 units in a year affords our customers greater flexibility and choice — in all of our regions.”


“We are proud to be a long-term partner with the All Family of Companies,” explained Bill Stramer, senior vice president - marketing, sales, and customer support for Link-Belt Cranes. “Our truck cranes have a long history as key contributors in their taxi fleet, and our lattice crawlers and rough-terrain cranes continue to be top performers in their bare-rental fleet. All Crane was one of the first rental companies to see the value of the telescopic crawler cranes in their fleet and purchased 10 of our TCC-750s when they were introduced over a decade ago. Today, the size and breadth of their TCC fleet is unmatched in the industry, and gives them a unique advantage in the market as the TCC products enjoy very high demand.”


Stramer further emphasized that Dawes has been a Link-Belt dealer for more than a generation. “A sales leader knows their product, and committing Link-Belt equipment to the All Family rental fleet demonstrates a real passion for excellence.”


The purchase includes six LS248HSL 200-USt lattice-boom crawler cranes, six 65RT 65-USt 65|RT rough-terrain cranes, five 85|RT 85-ton rough terrain cranes, four TCC-550 55-USt telescopic-boom crawler cranes, four 238HSL 150-USt lattice-boom crawlers, three TCC-2500 250-ton telescopic-boom crawlers, three HTC-86110 110-USt truck cranes, three HTC-8675 75-USt telescopic truck cranes, two 65HT 65-USt telescopic truck cranes, two TCC-1200 120-UStt telescopic crawlers, two TCC-800 80-USt telescopic crawlers, one 100|RT 100-USt rough-terrain, and one RTC-80160 160-USt rough-terrain crane.


All expects the new cranes to be in demand for steel erection, general contracting, pipeline work, and other applications.


The machines will be deployed strategically among All’s 33 branches nationwide.
