The ALL Family of Companies is expanding its fleet of RT cranes with a package from Grove.

The ALL Family of Companies is expanding its fleet of rough terrain (RT) cranes with a new 18-unit package from Grove that covers weight classes from 55-ton capacity up to 165-tons. The purchase includes four 165-ton GRT9165, three 80-ton GRT8080, five 70-ton RT770, and six 55-ton GRT655L. Also included are two 40-ton TMS540 hydraulic truck cranes, bringing the full order to 20 total units.

The ALL Family of Companies is , is expanding its fleet of rough terrain cranes with a new 18-unit package from Grove.

The four GRT9165s are in addition to four of the same unit purchased last year, a testament to their popularity with customers, particularly in wind energy, plant work and general construction in tight urban job sites, the company said.

Introduced in 2018, the GRT9165 is the highest-capacity, longest-reaching Grove rough-terrain crane. Its industry-leading 205-foot boom is a favorite in wind markets, where the height of windmills continues to increase.

“It used to be that 130-ton or 150-ton capacity RTs were the workhorses for wind,” said Chad Rados, industrial project coordinator for ALL. “But now, 165-tons is the sweet spot, and they are typically on site for extended periods.”

The strength of the unit relative to its size also makes it attractive for urban construction. “It packs a lot of power and reach into a small footprint,” said Rados. “It is highly mobile on job sites compared to ATs and crawlers, requiring no real disassembly before moving to another location on the same site.” 

ALL began taking delivery of units from this order in spring 2021, with the remainder expected to arrive throughout the balance of the year.
