ALL adds 11 new Liebherr cranes to portfolio

Privately-owned crane rental and sales company bulks up crane fleet to include 135- to 900-ton all terrain cranes.
The ALL Family of Companies, a North American privately-owned crane rental and sales enterprise, is adding to its fleet. The company has purchased a package of 11 new all-terrain (AT) cranes from Liebherr, ranging in capacities from 135 tons to 900 tons. The new cranes, most of which will be delivered by June 2023, will serve customers in both Canada and the United States.
Chad Rados, project coordinator for ALL, says the package speaks to the continued popularity of ATs among a wide range of customers.
“Our whole class of Liebherr ATs is always working,” he explained. “From new construction to bridges to refinery and mill work, they’re in demand. This package will update our fleet as well as replace some older stock.”
Rados estimates each crane will be out on job sites within a week of delivery, after the completion of a detailed commission process, adding that as ATs have gotten longer and stronger, general contractors have found more uses for them.
“There are many lifts, especially in tight confines, where these larger ATs can do work that was formerly exclusive to crawler cranes and do it with faster prep work and set-up times and fewer days on rent,” he said.
Rados is particularly excited about the acquisition of 360-USt Liebherr LTM 1300-6.3, the first-ever in the ALL fleet, with an impressive 295-foot boom.
“With the long boom, it can achieve maximum reaches without adding any extensions or luffing jibs,” said Rados. “It will do well in the industrial market, especially in tighter areas, as well as urban jobs where we don’t have a lot of room with street closures and obstructions.”
The package of new cranes includes four Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1, two Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1, and one each of the Liebherr LTM 1160-5.2, Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1, Liebherr LTM 1300-6.3, Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1, and Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1.
