Crane Rental Corporation continues to invest in its Heavy Haul division. The company recently ordered three new Peterbilt four-axle heavy haul tractors with sleepers. All the units are equipped with 550 HP Cummins engines, 18-speed transmissions, 46,000-pound rear ends and lift axles. The heavy haul units will be delivered in Q4 2014 and go to work immediately moving loads around the country.
The trucks 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 16000 440-ton capacity crawler crane, Manitowoc 18000 660-ton capacity crawler crane, Terex AC 500-2 600-ton capacity all-terrain hydraulic truck crane, and Grove GMK 5275 275-ton capacity all-terrain hydraulic truck crane. Within that time period the company has also added an innovative high-capacity telescoping-axle Trail King dual-lane transport trailer with suspension beams, perimeter deck, dollies, and bolster options.
