NEWPORT NEWS, VA — Representatives from Liebherr and the ALL Family of Companies recently celebrated a milestone — the handover of the 1,000th LTM 1200-5.1 mobile crane ever produced. Based in Cleveland, Ohio, the ALL Family of Companies is the largest privately-owned crane rental and sales organization in North America, with 36 branches operating under multiple names — ALL, Central, Dawes, Jeffers and ALT. The safety, product quality and flexibility of the LTM 1200-5.1 were major criteria behind ALL’s purchasing decision.
In 2005, Liebherr launched a mobile crane with the longest telescopic boom in the five-axle class in the form of the LTM 1200-5.1. It is 236 feet long and can also be extended with lattice booms. This means that the 430,000-pound crane can reach hook heights of up to 331 feet and radii of up to 263 feet. Over 1,000 LTM 1200-5.1 cranes have now been sold around the world, making it one of the most successful cranes in the five-axle class.
At its launch, the LTM 1200-5.1 was the first mobile crane in the world to feature pneumatic disc brakes. The pneumatic disc brake was installed in the crane axles after joint development between Liebherr and its system partners. Compared to the previously conventional drum brakes, disc brakes delivered improved braking performance and also enhanced braking control and the track stability of the vehicle. Longer maintenance intervals and shorter working times for changing the pads also meant improved economy.
Established in 1964, ALL Crane, offers rental, sales and parts in the heavy-lift industry. Their focus includes commercial construction, roads and bridges, power generation and facility maintenance. ALL was founded by three brothers: Michael C. Liptak Jr., Larry Liptak and Jake Liptak. The brothers, along with Michael’s wife, Marvine Liptak, recognized a customer need, bought themselves a crane and began renting it. Then they grew the fleet with cranes and trucks they bought and sold at auctions, and a family business was born.

The company founders are still actively involved in core operations. Michael L. Liptak, son of founder Michael Liptak, was named President in 2008. Second and third generations of the family are now in leadership positions, supported by approximately 1,500 employees.

“We’re honored to be receiving the 1,000th LTM 1200 and pleased to celebrate the moment with Liebherr,” said Michael Liptak, President and CEO of the ALL Family of Companies.

“We’re committed to having the best crane rental fleet in the North American market,” Liptak continued. “To that end, we invest with Liebherr because your engineering excellence matches the excellence we bring to customer job sites. We look for equipment that maximizes road-worthiness, mobility and efficiency. Our partnership with Liebherr is as much about your machines as your people and, in both cases, you help us deliver the right bundle of value, lift capacity and flexibility — second only to safety.”
