21 Liebherr ATs for ALL

US crane and access rental group ALL has ordered 21 new cranes from Liebherr for delivery this year.

The package includes four units of the following three models: a 120 tonne/four axle LTM 1120-4.1, a 130 tonne/five axle LTM 1130-5.1, and a 230 tonne/five axle LTM 1230-5.1.

It has also ordered three 160 tonne/five axle LTM 1160-5.2s and three 450 tonne/eight axle LTM 1450-8.1s. Finally, it has also ordered a 110 tonne/five axle LTM 1110-5.1, a 150 tonne/five axle LTM 1150-5.3, and a 700 tonne/eight axle LTM 1650-8.1.

While the delivery of some units has already occurred - or is imminent - 16 of them are scheduled for arrival in the second and third quarters. The new cranes will be distributed across the company’s North American branch network which now totals 33 locations in 14 states and one Canadian Province.

Chief executive Michael Liptak said: "This purchase is emblematic of ALL’s commitment to maintaining its fleet strength across the company’s broad North American footprint. We approach every package with an eye on customer demand, and what we have is a very expansive and diverse demand for All Terrains at all capacity levels and in every region. These LTMs are scheduled for delivery throughout the year and will be ready to roll, supporting each of our yards and the customers they serve.”

“To that point, three of the units in the package are new models with an array of technologies and performance features designed to serve our wide ranging customer mix and geographies. The LTM 1120-4.1 offers the maximum lifting capacity and boom length on a four axle mobile, delivering performance previously only available on 5-axle cranes. The LTM 1150-5.3, is a 150 ton machine that offers a 10 percent longer telescopic boom and 15 percent higher capacity than its successful predecessor, the LTM 1130-5.1. Last but not least the LTM 1650-8.1, offers 770 ton capacity, exceeding its predecessor’s capacity by between 15 and 50 percent, depending on the equipment package selected.”

“Ongoing growth in road and bridge and general infrastructure engineering and construction are huge, as are expectations for the wind market. These are drivers of the continued demand for All Terrains. This purchase also has a lot of cranes with longer booms, which give our customers added flexibility for commercial construction. We’re also fortifying our fleet to support growth in new construction and expansion in manufacturing and industrial buildings.”

“Many of the cranes in the package conform to road limits in our major markets, also making them attractive to customers due to the ease of transport. The mobility of our fleet, project to project, but also branch to branch, is important to us.”
