Continental Crane Co. is a new crane rental company established in the Los Angeles, CA area. The company plans to market rough terrain cranes to contractors in Southern California and the Southwestern region of the US. The company says it will build the largest, most modern and best equipped fleet of new rough terrain cranes available for bare rental.

With new cranes arriving every month, Continental Crane will have more than 30 brand new rough terrains by mid 2008, including 10 90-ton class Link-Belt RTC 8090 Series IIs, with 140 foot of main boom and a maximum tip height of 238 feet. The new company also will stock the latest rough terrain models from leading manufacturers, including Grove and Terex.

All machines have Tier III engines and are CARB (California Air Resources Board) compliant, enabling contractors in California to meet the increasingly tough engine emissions regulations imposed by the state authorities, according to the company.

Continental Crane has a partnership arrangement with Bigge Equipment, based in San Leandro, CA.

Continental Crane's rental manager, Mike Rice, said, “We can state quite confidently that no one else in Southern California has such a large, new and environmentally-friendly fleet of rough terrain cranes as Continental Crane Co. We also have factory-trained and factory-certified technicians to service the equipment and a comprehensive parts department to meet every need of all our customers.”
