November 7, 2018 - Covey Crane Service, Spencerport, New York, has just added a new Manitex TC45142C, 45-ton capacity boom truck to its fleet.  

Covey bought the TC45142C from Manitex dealer Empire Crane Company, who has sold more than 25 Manitex boom trucks in 2018.  

Raymond Ziegler, president of Covey Crane, said “We chose to purchase a Manitex boom truck again because of our great experience with the 40124SHL and Empire Crane.” 

The Manitex TC450 series telescopic cranes are built to do the variety of jobs that owner operators see in day-to-day work. The crane features a 142’ boom, telematics, significant cab upgrades, and an LMI. “The twin steer, tandem axles, radio remote outrigger controls, and fact that it’s a Manitex make it stand out to me,” Ziegler says.  

The crane was first used last week to replace the HVAC system at the Penfield, New York, library. 

Covey Crane Service is a taxi crane company serving all of upstate New York. Covey’s fleet is fully made up of American-made equipment.
