Ohio, USA-based tower crane company ALL Tower Crane, a division of the ALL Family of Companies, has added three new tower cranes to its fleet: a Liebherr 125 K fast-erecting tower crane; a Manitowoc Potain MR 418 luffing jib tower crane; and a Manitowoc Potain Igo T 85 A self-erecting tower crane. According to ALL Tower Crane, it strategically selected the cranes in order to meet emerging customer demand. All three units feature electric motors, which it said helps customers meet emission regulations.
The Liebherr is now the largest self-erector in the company’s fleet. It comes with Liebherr’s Load Plus function that allows the crane to increase load capacity by up to 20 percent by reducing line speed. “With the flip of a switch, customers can now handle individual heavyweight hoists without calling another crane to the site,” said Sam Moyer, general manager of ALL Tower Crane. “This feature increases jobsite flexibility, saving time and money when we are planning a project’s crane package.”
The Potain MR 418 is a high-speed luffing jib tower crane that is in high demand in the high-rise construction industry – particularly those involving concrete, said ALL Tower Crane. It is one of the fastest electric cranes available and can operate in either 1-part or 2-part reeving; either increasing the crane’s capacity or increasing its hoisting speed. The MR 418 delivers a hoist line speed of up to 833 feet (253 meters) per minute.
The Potain Igo T 85 A further builds upon ALL’s fleet of Potain self-erectors, which the company said are extremely popular in the residential, mixed-use, and panelised construction sectors. The Igo T 85 A is ideal for smaller construction sites or when setting up in tight workspaces, ALL Tower Cranes claimed.
“With these acquisitions, we further diversify our fleet to serve the evolving demands of our customers,” said Moyer. “We chose these units intentionally and methodically to complement the needs of today’s construction sites while giving us a head start on upcoming projects that will close out the year… These new tower purchases demonstrate our commitment to customers, who rely on us for technologies that do more than increase productivity – they advance the industry as a whole.”
