ALL Crane Adds 18 New Grove Rough Terrain Cranes
The All Family of Companies, the largest privately held crane rental and sales enterprise in North America, is expanding its fleet of rough terrain (RT) cranes with a new 18-unit package from Grove that covers weight classes from 50 t capacity up to 150 t. The purchase includes 4 GRT9165, 3 GRT8080, 5 RT770, and 6 GRT655L. Also included are 2 TMS540 hydraulic truck cranes, bringing the full order to 20 total units.
The GRT9165s are in addition to 4 units of the same model purchased last year, a testament to their popularity with customers, particularly in wind energy, plant work, and general construction in tight urban job sites.
Introduced in 2018, the GRT9165 is the highest-capacity, longest-reaching Grove rough terrain crane. Its industry-leading 62.5 m boom is a favorite in wind markets, where the height of windmills continues to increase.
“It used to be that 118 t or 136 t capacity RTs were the workhorses for wind,” said Chad Rados, industrial project coordinator for ALL. “But now, 150 t is the sweet spot, and they are typically on site for extended periods.”
The strength of the unit relative to its size also makes it attractive for urban construction.
“It packs a lot of power and reach into a small footprint,” added Mr. Rados. “It is highly mobile on job sites compared to ATs and crawlers, requiring no real disassembly before moving to another location on the same site.”
Furthermore, the GRT9165 is easily transported to job sites, requiring just 3 truckloads to deliver in full.
These same attributes drive interest in the GRT9165 among industrial plants, where scheduled downtime can be more easily accomplished with a machine that fits virtually anywhere and quickly moves from place to place.
ALL began taking delivery of units from this order in spring 2021, with the remainder expected to arrive throughout the rest of the year. Chad Rados says they will be deployed across ALL’s footprint of 33 branches.
