All Erection & Crane Rental has added 18 new Link-Belt cranes to its fleet.
Joining the USA-based rental company's fleet are six RTC-80110 telescopic boom rough terrain cranes and eight 238 HSL lattice boom crawler cranes. The new cranes will be delivered and distributed among All's branch yards next year, between February and September 2012.
The 110 US ton (100 tonne), 3-axle RTC-80110 Series II is the manufacturer's newest rough terrain crane. They will be delivered between March and July 2012. It has more capacity and a five-section, 40 to 150 feet (12.2 to 45.7 m) full power boom fabricated from ultra-high-strength steel at Link-Belt. The 80110 is powered by a Cummins engine to Tier 4i/Euro Stage IIIB emissions laws.
The 80110 is the only 110 US ton RT that can be transported with its wheels on, said the company. It can be disassembled and ready for transport in less than one hour with no service crane.
The 150 US ton (137 tonne) 238 HSL crawler cranes will be delivered between February and September 2012. The 238 HSL has a 50 to 260 foot (15.24 to 79.25 m) main boom. Maximum boom and jib combination is 230 + 80 feet (70.10 + 24.38 m) . The 150 US ton class crawler will support the general construction market, from bridge construction to steel erection, said All.
Rounding out the order are three 75 US ton (68 tonne) telescopic crawler cranes, and one HTC-3140 LB (long boom) truck crane. The TCC-750s have 115 feet (35 m) main booms and 58 feet (17.7 m) of swingaway jib, making them suitable for wind turbine erection, All said.
"We like investing in brands that we sell, and Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, a member of the All Family of Companies in Wisconsin, is a Link-Belt dealer," said Michael Liptak, All president.
