ALL purchases three new Link-Belt cranes
By Lindsey Anderson21 September 2009
The cranes have full-power, latching five-section formed booms that reach 41.4 to 162 feet (12.6 to 50 m). Maximum boom tip height comes in at 171 feet (52 m) and five boom modes allow variable extension of the telescoping sections.
"Link-Belt is a superior brand and an extremely reliable company for us to deal with - and the versatility of these new, larger Link-Belt RT cranes will broaden our rental fleet," said Michael Liptak, ALL Erection president.
"This acquisition supports ALL's marketing objective of investing in brands that we're a dealer for, and Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, a member of the ALL family of companies in Wisconsin, is a Link-Belt dealer."
One of the three Link-Belts will be going to Dawes and the other two will go where there is market demand.
The crane has a 10 foot (3 m) heavy-lift fly that swings and pins into place. Capacity is more than 20 tons (18 tonnes).
