Crane Rental Corporation has added five cranes to its fleet this month. The additions include a 275-ton capacity Manitowoc 999 crawler crane, a 230-ton capacity Link-Belt LS-298 crawler crane, two 130-ton capacity Grove RT9130E hydraulic rough-terrain cranes, and an 80-ton Grove RT880E hydraulic rough-terrain crane.

The cranes mark a steady increase in Crane Rental’s fleet overall, as the company has purchased several new cranes over the last 12 months including a Peiner SK415 electric tower crane, Manitowoc 18000 660-ton capacity crawler crane, Terex AC 500-2 600-ton capacity all-terrain hydraulic truck crane, and a Grove GMK 5275 275-ton capacity all-terrain hydraulic truck crane. Within that time period the company has also added three new four-axle heavy haul tractors and an innovative high-capacity telescoping-axle dual-lane transport trailer to its heavy haul division.

“We are seeing increasing demand in almost every sector of our industry,” said Alan Ashlock, president, Crane Rental Corporation. “We are investing in new equipment to continue providing excellent service to our customers nationwide.”
