The ALL Family of Companies is adding a new package of Kobelco G-3 Series hydraulic crawler cranes to its fleet. Each unit is part of Kobelco’s redesigned, “repowered” cranes unveiled at CONEXPO last March. The package includes the following units, in varying quantities: CK800G-3 (80-ton capacity), CK1100G-3 (110-tons), and CK1600G-3 (160-tons).
The new G-3 models were created using input from end users derived from real jobsite experiences. They incorporate transport, assembly, and operator-friendly concepts. Other features include boom, carbody, and track side frame structures designed with ease of transport in mind. The new cab and design of the cranes add to the operator’s comfort and safety.
Rick Mikut, ALL’s crawler crane division manager, says the G-3 line also boasts the Isuzu Tier 4-compliant engine, known for its reliability, fuel efficiency, and quiet operation.
The new cranes are expected to be deployed across ALL’s 33-branch North American footprint, where they are expected to find ample work in bridge construction, plant work, foundation work, and more. In addition to using Kobelco cranes in its own fleet, ALL is also an authorized Kobelco dealer.
The G-3 Series cranes include a new cab design offering improved visibility and new features such as bluetooth and USB capabilities. Kobelco has maintained all the previous hydraulic systems, crane travel system, and other components that have made Kobelco known as an operator-friendly and reliable crane in North America for the past 30 years.
