Wind, industrial and construction markets drive ALL Crane to expand fleet
June 29, 2021 By Crane & Hoist Canada Staff
The ALL Family of Companies (ALL) has announced it is expanding its fleet of rough terrain (RT) cranes with a new 18-unit package from Grove, covering weight classes from a 55-tonne capacity, up to 165 tonnes.
ALL, a privately-held crane rental and sales operation in North America, purchased four 165-USt GRT9165, three 80-USt GRT8080, five 70-USt RT770, and six 55-USt GRT655L. Also included are two 40-USt TMS540 hydraulic truck cranes, bringing the full order to 20 total units
The company’s purchase of four GRT9165s comes after it purchased the same unit in 2020, and found the model to be helpful to customers working on wind energy, plant work, and general construction projects in tight, urban jobsites.
Introduced in 2018, the GRT9165 is Grove’s highest-capacity, longest-reaching rough-terrain crane. Its 205-foot boom is ideal in the wind markets, where the height of wind turbines continues to increase. “It used to be that 130-tonne or 150-tonne capacity RTs were the workhorses for wind,” says Chad Rados, industrial project coordinator for ALL. “But now, 165-tons is the sweet spot, and they are typically on site for extended periods.”
While the crane’s lift capacity is high, its footprint is small, making it ideal for urban construction. “It packs a lot of power and reach into a small footprint,” Rados explains. “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.” Additionally, transporting the GRT9165 to job sites is made simple for users, which requires just three truckloads to deliver in full.
ALL began taking delivery of units from this order in spring 2021, with the remainder expected to arrive throughout the balance of the year. Rados says the cranes will be deployed across ALL’s footprint of 33 national branches.
