ALL Crane purchases 21 Liebherr cranes
By Hannah Sundermeyer16 February 2021
Delivery has begun and continues through 2021.
ALL is reinvesting heavily in its mobile all-terrain fleet, announcing a massive haul of 21 new cranes from Liebherr that will be delivered throughout 2021. The package includes: four each of LTM 1120-4.1, LTM 1130-5.1, and LTM 1230-5.1; three each of LTM 1160-5.2 and LTM 1450-8.1; and one each of LTM 1110-5.1, LTM 1150-5.3, and LTM 1650-8.1. 16 of the cranes are scheduled for delivery in the second and third quarters.
“We approach every package with an eye on customer demand, and what we have is a very expansive and diverse demand for ATs at all capacity levels and in every region,” said Michael L. Liptak, CEO and president, ALL Crane. “These LTMs are scheduled for delivery throughout the year and will be ready to roll, supporting each of our yards and the customers they serve.”
To that point, three of the units in the package are new models with an array of technologies and performance features designed to serve ALL’s wide ranging customer mix and geographies.
The LTM 1120-4.1 offers the maximum lifting capacity (135-ton) and boom length on a 4-axle mobile, delivering performance previously only available on 5-axle cranes. The LTM 1150-5.3, introduced in October of 2020, is a 150-ton machine that offers a 10 percent longer telescopic boom and 15 percent higher capacity than its successful predecessor, the LTM 1130-5.1. The LTM 1650-8.1, which made its debut at last year’s Bauma trade fair, offers 770-ton capacity, exceeding its predecessor’s capacity by between 15 and 50 percent, depending on the equipment package selected.
“Ongoing growth in road and bridge and general infrastructure engineering and construction are huge, as are expectations for the wind market. These are drivers of the continued demand for ATs,” said Liptak. “This purchase also has a lot of cranes with longer booms, which give our customers added flexibility for commercial construction. We’re also fortifying our fleet to support growth in new construction and expansion in manufacturing and industrial buildings.”
Liptak notes that many of the Liebherr cranes in the package conform to road limits in ALL’s major markets, also making them attractive to customers due to the ease of transport.
