Stephenson Equipment takes delivery of a new National-Crane NTC55L

Handed over at the 2019 International Construction and Utility Exposition (ICUEE) in Kentucky, it was the fourth such unit to be delivered. Darin D’Ascanio, territory manager at SEI, said the new crane will be attractive to customers in many different segments, including utility work, tree care and crane rental. “We are very excited to offer a National Crane that has a 151 foot main boom with a 36 foot lattice jib,” D’Ascanio said.

SEI celebrated the new addition to its fleet with customers Bob’s Crane Service and Bauman Crane. Both own several National cranes and both have NTC55Ls on order with SEI. The two companies used the ICUEE show as an opportunity to preview the upcoming addition to their fleets.

“The NTC55L’s reach is really impressive,” said Rich Nichols, owner, Bob’s Crane Service. “The 151 foot boom on a commercial chassis, combined with increased roadability and the ability to travel without special permits, will be a big benefit to our daily jobs. We offer true taxi services where we drive cranes to jobs daily, so we are also looking forward to adding this capability to our fleet.”

“National Crane is a widely recognized brand, and we have many of its cranes in our own fleet,” said Frank Bauman, president, Bauman Crane. ”We’re excited about some of the particular features of the NTC55L, such as its ability to set up with a reduced 20 foot outrigger span and its focus on the operator’s comfort.”
