January 7, 2019—The ALL Family of Companies, one of the largest privately held crane rental companies in North America, has purchased eight new Kobelco CK-class G Series hydraulic lattice-boom crawler cranes for its rental fleet. ALL Crane is an authorized Kobelco dealer, and the purchase, which will increase the number of Kobelco cranes available to its rental customers, demonstrates the company’s confidence in the cranes’ value and performance.
Included in the deal are four new CK800G-2 units (80 USt, 200 ft. max boom) and two each of the new CK1100G-2 (110 USt, 200 ft. max boom) and CK1600G-2 (160 USt, 250 ft. max boom). Delivery is scheduled for spring 2019.
All units in the G Series are designed from the ground up for reliable operation, convenient maintenance, and easy transport. They have EPA-compliant, clean-running engines, plus energy-saving assist systems known as “G Modes,” which can achieve up to a 30% savings in fuel consumption. Other features of the G Series include a larger cab design, LMI touchscreen, counterweight detection device, improved counterweight self-installation mechanism, and improved, shorter control levers.
"Customers love these cranes because they are efficient and easy to use, and operators love them because of the roomy cabs, intuitive technology, and enhanced safety features,” said Michael L. Liptak, president of ALL Crane. “We became a Kobelco authorized dealer last year because we believe in what their cranes bring to a jobsite. Now we’re expanding our ownership of these machines so our rental customers can experience the Kobelco difference for themselves."
The cranes represented in the package are ideal sizes and capacities for bread-and-butter jobs like road construction, bridge work, and urban construction, where maximum power in a smaller package is always welcome.
ALL Crane's sales territory for Kobelco cranes covers Ohio, West Virginia, and western Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh. Upon delivery, this new package of cranes will be distributed among ALL Crane rental fleets in specifically throughout this region.
