US distributor and rental company CraneWorks has placed an order for several National Crane models including 54.4 tonne NBT60L, 50 tonne NBT55L and 40.8 tonne NBT45-142 boom trucks.
The NBT60L, which was launched last year, features a 46 metre main boom, topped by a 10.9 metre lattice swingaway extension, for a maximum tip height of 59.7 metres. The NBT55L has a 39 metre main boom and 54.6 metre maximum tip height. Finally the NBT45-142 has a 49.1 metre main boom and an 11.6 metre swingaway to provide a 62.8 metre maximum tip height.
The company has already taken delivery of the NBT60Ls units with the NBT55Ls and NBT45s scheduled in the coming months. The company has said the new cranes are ideal for work in the oil and gas industry, as well as tree service industry and utility sectors, where the use of both a crane and an aerial work platform is often required.
CraneWorks chief executive, Keith Ayers, said: “The new L series from National gives our fleet some of the best capacities and reaches in the boom truck space. We will continue to make substantial investment in expanding our fleet, and we also look forward to expanding our relationship with National Crane.”
Mike Heinrich, vice president of National Crane boom trucks sales added: “We are very pleased that our new, boom trucks are expanding CraneWorks’ boom truck offering in the region. It is exciting to do business with a company that offers the most industry-leading lifting solutions to ensure its customers’ success.”
Based in Houston, Texas, CraneWorks operates from nine locations across the US. It is also a dealer for IMT, Auto Crane service cranes, Jekko spider and pick & carry cranes, Fassi loader cranes, Kinshofer attachments, Manitex boom trucks, Manitou telehandlers, Palfinger cranes, Socage truck mounted and spider lifts, Bronto truck mounted lifts, Cormach loader cranes, Elliot cranes and aerial devices as well as Demag mobile cranes.
