Dawes updates fleet with Link-Belt

USA-based Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, a member of the ALL Family of Companies, has taken delivery of six Link-Belt truck cranes.

The order included a HTC-8660, two HTC-8675 Series II models and three HTC-86100-XLs, with lifting capacities ranging from 60 tons (54 tonnes) to 100 tons (90.7 tonnes).

"These are all versatile machines," said Stew LaPointe, Dawes rental coordinator. “This equipment can be used for all types of construction — setting structural iron, lifting precast concrete, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) work.”

The acquisition of the cranes helps to offset the recent sale of some older equipment, says Dawes.

"We like to have the latest equipment in the rental fleet. Having six cranes come within a month and a half is something you don’t often see, but it demonstrates our commitment to staying current,” said LaPointe.

The cranes will be dispersed among Dawes’ locations in Milwaukee, Madison, and Kaukauna.
