Two New Cranes Added to the Carolina Markets

Grove GMK7550, Largest Mobile Hydraulic All Terrain Crane, and Liebherr LTM 1300-6.1 Bring Added Capability to the ALL Family of Companies

February 19, 2009-The southern U.S. construction markets gain big capability with the addition of two new all terrain cranes, including the first GMK7550 in the Carolinas at ALL Carolina Crane & Equipment in Raleigh, NC, a member of the ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. Family of Companies. The 7550 is Grove's flagship and largest mobile all terrain hydraulic crane, offering a 550-ton rated lifting capacity on a seven-axle carrier. The crane also comes with a "boom launcher," which speeds assembly for better cost- and time-effectiveness. The other new mobile A/T crane, a 365-ton capacity Liebherr LTM 1300-6.1, went to ALL Carolina Crane Rental in North Charleston, SC, another member of the ALL family.

"The purchase of these mammoth cranes demonstrates the ALL commitment to continuous upgrading of our fleets to better serve our market areas," says Craig Hunt, General Manager of ALL Carolina. "The GMK7550 gives us tremendous mobility for both on- and off-road construction and industrial applications, including bridges and highways, power and nuclear plants, and refineries. The 7550 is the workhorse for erecting and disassembling tower cranes."

The GMK7550 has a five-section, full power 197-ft boom, providing a maximum tip height of 207 ft. The patented TWIN-LOCK(TM) boom pinning system has 32 extension configurations. An optional 240-ft lattice luffing jib converts to a fixed offset lattice jib with lengths up to 230 ft, offsettable at 3 degrees and 25 degrees and allowing up to 430 ft overall tip height. The 7550 also features a stowing crane cab for highway travel and boasts a 53 mph travel speed.

The powerful six-axle LTM 1300-6.1 can be operated in an extensive range of applications due to its 197-ft telescopic boom, 69-ft double folding jib, as well as a fixed or luffing lattice fly jib at up to 230 ft.
