ALL Crane Adds Nine New Link-Belts
Nov. 23, 2020 - The ALL Family of Companies, the largest privately held crane rental and sales operation in North America, is adding nine new Link-Belt cranes to its fleet. The purchase comes on the heels of a 16-unit Link-Belt package announced earlier in the year.
This latest purchase includes six teleboom crawler cranes (two each of the 80-USt TCC-800, 140-USt TCC-1400, and 250-USt TCC-2500) and three truck cranes (60-USt HTC-8660, 75-USt HTC-8675, and 110-USt HTC-86110).
This will bring ALL’s total ownership of TCCs to more than 40 units across its nationwide branches.
Since entering the market 15 years ago, the TCC line of teleboom crawlers has steadily grown, with increased capacities that maintain ease of off-road maneuvering. “Link-Belts are a staple of ALL’s daily taxi fleet,” said Rick Mikut, ALL Crane’s crawler crane division manager. “They provide fast setup and a high degree of mobility for customers across a variety of diverse industries.”
TCCs are popular for power line and wind-turbine jobs and small steel and precast plank projects.
Mikut is particularly excited to be adding more TCC-800 units to ALL’s fleet, in large part because of its SmartFly jib system. “This will make job sites safer because it requires one section of the jib to be pinned before moving on to the next section,” said Mikut.
Link-Belt teleboom crawlers have proved popular with ALL’s customers. “They love these workhorses,” said Mikut. “They’re dependable, crawl into position, and get to work fast. They can add several hours a day of operating time to a job site.”
The three HTC units hit ALL’s truck crane sweet spot, typically 110 USt and below. These units offer speed, accessibility, long reach, and high-capacity booms. Their features draw from the best attributes of a truck and an all-terrain crane. They have the reach and capacities of smaller ATs, while driving to and from job sites quickly and easily—just like a truck.
ALL will take delivery of the nine new units throughout 2021, where they will join units from the previously announced Link-Belt purchase, which included four 60-USt HTC-8660 truck cranes, four 50-USt TCC-500 teleboom crawlers, four 80-USt TCC-800 teleboom crawlers, one 140-USt TCC-1400 teleboom crawler, one 100-USt 100 RT rough-terrain crane and two 200-USt 248-HSL lattice boom crawlers.
