Sims Equipment of Tampa, FL is the first in the US to buy a Kobelco SL 6000, a new 600 ton capacity lattice crawler crane. The new model will showcase at Bauma in Germany later this month (see the show preview on page 43).
“This will be the first of this model in the US,” said Jack Fendrick of Kobelco. “We're looking at an August 2007 delivery of this unit.”
Fendrick said the machine will be a part of Sims' rental fleet and that “from our standpoint we are excited to be launching this machine and pleased to sell the first one in the US and Sims is the owner.”
