The ALL Family of Companies Announces Major Equipment Purchases in Advance of CONEXPO-CON/AGG

Acquisitions Include New Grove GMK6300L 350-Ton All Terrain Crane and New Grove GMK7550

January 27, 2011 - The ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. Family of Companies has fortified its all terrain (AT) crane fleet in the long-boom 250-ton to 350-ton range with the purchase of Manitowoc's new 350-ton Grove GMK6300L. The crane, painted and lettered for Central Contractor Services, a member of the ALL Family of Companies, will be the showpiece of the Manitowoc booth at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011 in Las Vegas in March.

The new GMK6300L is part of a multi-piece equipment purchase from Manitowoc that underscores the ALL Family of Companies' commitment to continually upgrading its already expansive, technologically advanced fleet. Additional new equipment includes a Grove GMK7550, the largest AT crane available from Manitowoc (slated for ALL's Gulf region); a Grove GMK6250-L AT crane; a Manitowoc 2250 lattice-boom crawler crane; two Manitowoc Model 16000 luffing jibs and a 16000 wind attachment; and a Manitowoc 18000 MAX-ER attachment.

The new Grove GMK6300L ranks among the strongest in lifting capability compared with other six-axle all terrain cranes and offers more power when lifting at tall heights. The GMK6300L has significant advantages over other cranes with similar boom lengths. The seven-section, 51- to 263-foot full power main boom is the longest in the Grove product range and is designed for strong lifts without the need to rig the jib. There are five available outrigger positions, more than any other crane in this capacity class, giving greater flexibility.

Says Michael Liptak, president of the ALL Family of Companies, "This new 6300 is an exciting addition to our AT fleet. The long boom is really what makes this crane special - in this case, size really does matter. We're excited to take this home and put it to work for our customers."
