February 18 - The ALL Family of Companies has added two 450-tonne lift capacity Tadano ATF 400G-6 hydraulic all terrain cranes to its fleet.
The duo join 15 Tadano GR-550XL hydraulic rough terrain cranes, each with a 55-tonne lift capacity, which have been acquired by the company over the past 60 days.
The ATF 400G-6 is the manufacturer's largest-capacity all terrain crane and has a maximum lift height of 402 ft (122.5 m). Its 198.6 ft (60 m) boom is the strongest in its class, able to lift loads for which other similarly classed cranes would require the use of a suspension system, says Tadano.
The 55-tonne capacity GR-550XL RT features a full-power, four-section synchronised telescoping boom. These versatile and manoeuverable mid-range rough terrain cranes, which are ideal for for daily rentals and city work, will be popular all over ALL's 37-branch network, claimed the company.
The 17 cranes will be delivered to the ALL Family of Companies throughout 2015. The two ATFs will be based at ALL's Chicago, Illinois and Canadian branches.
"We are expecting to see lots of infrastructure projects like bridges, road work, and commercial construction that the 450-tonne Tadano AT can easily get after. Lots of long-planned-for, though stalled, projects are finding their funding," said Michael Liptak, president of the ALL Family of Companies.
