Crane Rental Corp. has expanded its heavy-haul logistics division by adding two of the world’s largest cranes to its fleet—an 825-ton capacity Manitowoc 18000 and a 600-ton capacity Terex AC500 hydraulic truck crane—along with a state-of-the-art 224-foot-long Trail King Dual Lane transport trailer.
President Alan Ashlock said the company has invested over $14 million in new equipment during the fourth quarter of 2013 alone. Ashlock added that the innovative 200-ton capacity Trail King trailer features first-of-its-kind telescoping axles that widen from 14 to 20 feet over bridges to more safely distribute loads.
Crane Rental’s Manitowoc 18000 crawler cranes, Terex truck crane and Trail King trailer are well-suited for extra heavy loads at chemical and power plants, refineries, and road and bridge building projects, the company said.
“We got our start at Kennedy Space Center and Walt Disney World, and in 2014 we are proudly celebrating our 54th year in business,” added Ashlock who has served as its second-generation president since 1988.
Crane Rental has over 100 cranes and employs over 110.
