The ALL Family of Companies is taking delivery of a package of Link-Belt cranes, including telecrawlers, lattice boom crawlers, truck cranes and a rough terrain crane.
Link-Belt Cranes will deliver 16 new cranes to the ALL Family of Companies over the next few months and into 2021. The package of cranes includes four 60-ton HTC-8660 truck cranes, four 50-ton TCC-500 telecrawlers, four 80-ton TCC-800 telecrawlers, one 140-ton TCC-1400 telecrawler, one 100-ton 100 RT rough-terrain crane and two 200-ton 248-HSL lattice boom crawlers.
Link-Belt cranes are known for their ease of transport and fast setup once on the jobsite, according to ALL.
“Link-Belt truck cranes are staples of our daily taxi fleet and the addition of the rough terrain and crawler cranes will help in supporting our bare rental fleet,” said Joe Ruddell, retail sales manager of Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, a member of the ALL Family of Companies. “The variety Link-Belt offers helps us to serve a wide range of customer needs.”
ALL purchased four four of the new TCC-800 models, the sixth telecrawler model Link-Belt has introduced.
“To us, it’s an ideal upgrade to the TCC-750 that we’ve loved and relied on for years,” said Ruddell. The new TCC-800 model offers similar features to the 750 with an additional five tons of capacity and five more feet of full power main boom for 120 total feet. The TCC-800 is the first in Link-Belt’s telecrawler lineup to feature the variable equipped and monitored track positions (V-CALC) system, which allows the operator the added flexibility to operate the crane with side frames in asymmetric configurations..
Link-Belt’s TCC units can be transported in single loads, Ruddell said.
”Both the TCC-500 and TCC-800 will see a lot of use on power line jobs, small steel and precast plank projects as well,” he said. ”With the fully retractable boom and variable track widths they will be able to crawl into tight spaces where conventional crawlers cannot access which will make them a very popular choice for all types of projects”
Another new model is the RT 100, a two-axle rough-terrain crane that replaces a three-axle version. It is expected to be used extensively in bare rental work, with the flexibility to be used in mid-size steel and iron work, precast projects and setting rebar for foundations, ALL said.
Delivery of cranes in the 16-unit package has already begun, with Link-Belt production expected to keep up with the order throughout the balance of 2020 and completing in 2021.
