J F Lomma has ordered six new Manitowoc crawler cranes - three Model 2250s, two Model 16000s, and a Model 18000, with delivery starting in early fall. Jimmy Lomma, president, said, “Manitowoc crawlers have some of the best load charts around. Customers' needs are varied, and with the amount of urban construction going on in New York City, we need to be prepared for any number of jobsite needs. With a variety of boom configurations and great lift capacities across the load chart, Manitowoc crawlers provide exactly what we need.”
The Model 2250, the Model 16000, and the Model 18000 offer maximum capacities of 330, 440 and 660 tons, respectively. All of the cranes were ordered as complete packages with luffing jibs. The Model 2250 reaches a maximum of 400 feet when configured with main boom and luffing jib, while with the same configuration the Model 18000 has a reach of 520 feet and the Model 16000 offers 432 feet.
