Bragg Crane Service, headquartered in Long Beach, California, finalized the purchase of eight new Link-Belt Cranes with Nixon-Egli Company. Bragg, a long-time Link-Belt owner, takes delivery of all cranes by the end of third quarter 2017.
The package includes five new HTC-86110 telescopic truck cranes, one HTT-86110 telescopic truck terrain crane and two 110|RT rough terrain cranes. Ian Johnsen, Bragg Crane Rental’s Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, noted that Link-Belt truck cranes have been the backbone of the Bragg taxi crane fleet for the past 20 years.
“From our experience to date, the new HTC-86110 is a great blend of reach, capacity and outstanding road ability that is already exceeding our expectations,” stated Johnson. He went on to say that they are looking forward to their first Link-Belt truck terrain, which should excel in the confined work environment of their Santa Barbara region.
In reference to their purchase of two 110|RTs, Scott Bragg, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Bragg Companies said, “the outstanding reach of the 164 ft. boom on the 110|RTs allows our bare rental clients to cover the majority of their lifting needs without the burden of erecting fly attachments.”
Skeeter Collins, Link-Belt’s North American Sales Manager offered, “We appreciate the opportunity for Nixon-Egli and Link-Belt to earn Bragg’s business. They are one of the leaders in the crane and heavy transportation industry and we are honored they have again chosen our equipment for their fleet.”
