All Erection has ordered 10 new Grove 50-ton rough terrain cranes.

As part of a major acquisition in its first-quarter fleet update, ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. purchased a package of 10 Manitowoc 2250 lattice boom crawler cranes and five luffing jibs. ALL Erection runs the largest fleet of Manitowoc 2250s in the world. A block of 10 new Grove RT650E 50-ton rough terrain cranes and 10 Grove RT540E 40-ton RTs were also ordered and will add to ongoing fleet expansion at its Cleveland, Ohio, headquarters location.

The 2250 is the staple of ALL’s crawler fleet, with a capacity of 300 tons and featuring 330 ft of main boom. Designed-in mobility, stability, and reliability make the 2250 ideal for a variety of applications, from setting steel to placing heavy industrial components. The 70- to 160-ft luffing jib adds flexibility on tight construction sites and facilitates up-and-over lifts.

Crane utilization is at the highest level in years, according to Michael L. Liptak, president, ALL Family of Companies. He attributes it to the surge in power and energy projects, which has fueled the demand for mid-range crawlers like the 2250. “Fortifying our rental fleet also allows us to offer more quality used equipment for sale, so demand is met for all of our customers,” Liptak said.
