The ALL Family of Companies Expands All-Terrain Fleet With 15 New Liebherr Units for 2019

October 22, 2018

October 22, 2018—The ALL Family of Companies has dramatically strengthened their mobile all-terrain crane fleet for 2019 with a blockbuster package consisting of six Liebherr AT models ranging from 70- to 600-USt capacities—15 units in all—scheduled for delivery throughout 2019.

The package bolsters ALL’s workhorse taxi fleet with 14 units in the low- to medium-capacity range—and on top of that, adds a huge-capacity boost with a 600-USt LTM 1500-8.1, the fourth one in the ALL Family’s AT fleet. The new Liebherr machines bring not just a range of lifting power, but also the on-site mobility, roadworthiness, and technical features to strengthen an already solid stable of lifting equipment for infrastructure work, commercial construction, and more.

The 600-ton LTM 1500-8.1 is Liebherr’s third-largest AT. It features a 7-section boom that extends to 276 feet and, with a luffing jib, can reach a hoisting height up to 476 feet at a radius of 354 feet. Its huge capability and reach, along with its agile mobility, provides the muscle for both on- and off-road construction and industrial applications, including bridges and highways, power plants, refineries, and more. The 1500-8.1 is also a workhorse for erecting and disassembling tower cranes, and its big boom can be invaluable on wind farms.

“A prime reason for adding this group of machines for 2019 is that Liebherr equipment offers many thoughtfully designed technologies that help meet our customers’ everyday challenges,” said Michael L. Liptak, president of the ALL Family of Companies. One of those is Liebherr’s innovative VarioBase crane support system. VarioBase allows the operator to customize each of the crane’s outrigger extensions independently, providing the ability to take advantage of every inch of available working space. That greatly reduces site prep, but it also increases machine stability and lifting capacity.

“The VarioBase feature is proving really valuable to our customers, particularly in urban construction, where we are seeing a huge uptick,” added Liptak. “But whether these ATs are working on an urban core renewal project or a tight power plant site, VarioBase allows them to fit where cranes of similar capacity never could before. Our operators love it, but it also makes the machines safer and more cost effective as bare rentals,” he said.

Besides the LTM 1500-8.1, the package also includes the 70-USt LTM 1060-3.1 (2 units), featuring high load capacities, a long boom system, and compact dimensions; the new 100-USt LTM 1090-4.2 (4 units), with environmentally friendly technology that reduces fuel consumption and noise; the 143-USt LTM 1130-5.1 (4 units), offering a long, variable boom system with outstanding load capacities in a compact size with a state-of-the-art chassis and drive technology; The LTM 1100-5.2 (1 unit), one of the most compact 5-axle cranes in its class; and the 220-USt LTM 1200-5.1 (3 units), providing outstanding lifting capacities and reach with its 7-section, 236-foot telescopic boom that can be extended with a 23-foot lattice jib and a swing-away jib up to 118 feet long.

“This purchase extends the range and strength of our all-terrain fleet, and the high demand for these types of machines at all our locations can be more readily fulfilled,” said Liptak. “As a group, these ATs are versatile, economical, and efficient machines.”
