The ALL Family of Companies began the final quarter of 2016 by expanding its offering of crawlers and aerial lift equipment. Thanks to two separate deals with leading-brand manufacturers Manitowoc and JLG, ALL has acquired an equipment package consisting of crawlers, aerial and boom lifts, and telescopic forklifts. There are 30 new machines in total.
“Our crawlers and aerials are in high demand,” said Michael L. Liptak, President of ALL. “We are really just responding to existing demand with these additional 30 units. We think the appetite for well-maintained, new-model equipment is always strong, so we define ourselves by our commitment to a modern, technologically-advanced fleet.”
The Manitowoc purchase includes two 275-USt Manitowoc 999 crawler cranes. These crawlers provide high capacity, reliability, and versatility. One of the new cranes will head straight to a job in Ohio. Also joining the crawler fleet is a new 220-USt Manitowoc 14000. With its long reach (up to 462 feet with the luffing jib attached), it is an extremely versatile crane.
Liptak sais the company is using them at wind farms, power plants, and for many types of new construction. “They can set steel and precast concrete, among a wide variety of other applications,” he added.
The company’s new JLG package includes 17 telescopic boom lifts, with horizontal outreach ranging from 33 to 80 feet, as well as 10 JLG telescopic forklifts (telehandlers). These range from the JLG 642, with a maximum capacity of 6,600 pounds, to the heavy-duty JLG G15-44A, the largest of JLG’s telehandlers, with a maximum capacity of 15,000 pounds.
Telehandlers and boom lifts are maneuverable, efficient machines that offer real advantages on crowded job sites. Their power, versatility, and ability to work at awkward angles can directly and positively affect productivity.
