ALL Crane Adds Six New Grove GRT8120 RTs

 Oct. 29, 2020 - The ALL Family of Companies, the largest privately held crane rental and sales operation in North America, has purchased some of the first of new Grove GRT8120 rough-terrain cranes to roll off the assembly line.

These 120-USt RTs bring a number of innovations to their capacity class, including a completely redesigned carrier that is the same size as a 100-ton capacity RT and can be delivered in two truckloads.

The GRT8120’s compactness and 197’ pinned telescopic boom make it a versatile crane with a smaller footprint and a capacity that in some cases rivals that of a 130-ton crane.

“For industrial work at refineries and processing plants, and in the precast and steel erection of urban construction, the GRT8120 will get where other cranes can’t and will deliver the reach and lift that these applications demand,” said Chad Rados, project coordinator at All.

Furthering its versatility, the GRT8120 features Grove’s exclusive MAXbase variable outrigger positioning. Equipped with smart length-sensing outrigger extension cylinders and an automatic leveling system, MAXbase improves access to congested jobsites and maximizes capacities.

“In the past, perhaps a general contractor would need to perform additional civil engineering or move obstructions,” said Rados. “Now, we can work around those, making the GRT8120 a money- and time-saver as well.”

All will begin taking delivery of the six new cranes in the first quarter of next year. The package comes on the heels of All’s recent purchase of four Grove GRT9165s. Together, the addition of the 10 new rough-terrain cranes in less than a year speaks to customer demand for these machines.

“RTs remain a popular category,” said Rados. “We continually reinvest in our fleet and are pleased to bring these exciting options to customers.” The new units will be deployed throughout All’s North American footprint.
