Dawes Gets Six Link-Belt Truck Cranes

July 9, 2018 - Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, Milwaukee, a member of the ALL Family of Companies, has taken delivery of six new Link-Belt truck cranes.  


The deliveries comprise three models: one HTC-8660, two HTC-8675 Series II, and three HTC-86100-XL, with capacities ranging from 60 to 100 U.S. tons.  


The cranes were ordered at the beginning of the year and were delivered in April and May. Since the six cranes came so closely together, Dawes took the opportunity to take a “family” photo.  

“These are all versatile machines,” said Stew LaPointe, Dawes rental coordinator, said that the six new cranes will be available for rent throughout Wisconsin. “This equipment can be used for everything from residential carpentry to all types of construction—setting structural iron, precast concrete, and HVAC work.”  


Dawes is a full-service Link-Belt dealer.    

This acquisition helps update the Dawes fleet and offsets its recent sale of some older equipment.  

“We like to have the latest equipment in the rental fleet. Having six cranes come within a month and a half is something you don’t often see, but it demonstrates our commitment to staying current,” said LaPointe. “Our hope is that customers know they’re dealing with a company that’s dedicated to not only updating our fleet, but also employing the safest crane technology on the market today.” 

The cranes will be dispersed among Dawes’ locations in Milwaukee, Madison, and Kaukauna, Wis.
