Empire Crane purchases a Shuttlelift CD5520 at CONEXPO

3/28/2014 Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

Syracuse, N.Y.-based Empire Crane visited Manitowoc’s booth at CONEXPO today to finalize its purchase of a new Shuttlelift CD5520 industrial crane.

The CD5520 is one of the many new cranes Manitowoc has debuted at the Las Vegas, Nev., trade show and it has a load of features that Empire expects will excite customers.

Empire expects to sell the crane to one of its customers soon after CONEXPO ends. The company is so convinced that the crane will appeal to customers, it’s stocking the CD5520 in anticipation.

Luke Lonergan, vice president of Empire, said the company is excited to be one of the first to obtain the Shuttlelift CD5520, especially because of its reach and capacity.

“We always buy the latest and greatest cranes for our customers,” he said. “With its 20 USt capacity and best-in-class 54 ft 6 in boom, we are confident that the CD5520 will sell very quickly.”

The Shuttlelift CD5520 replaces the CD5560B industrial crane, while adding new technology and design features. For the first time on an industrial crane, Shuttlelift is offering two jib options: a 15 ft boom extension or a telescoping 15 ft to 25 ft swingaway boom extension.

With an overall length of 23 ft 3 in and width of 7 ft 8 in, the CD5520 will fit into the tightest of work spaces. It measures only 8 ft 2 in tall, making it ideal for indoor industrial work. It also has a completely redesigned cab with new automotive style controls and joystick controllers.

Empire Crane has been in the lifting business since 2002 and has locations in Syracuse; Boston, Mass., and Somerville, N.J. Empire provides cranes and other lifting services for the general construction industry, including wind projects, power line distribution, bridge building and more.

“We look forward to the arrival of CONEXPO every three years – it’s a great chance to connect with our customer base in the Northeast and to meet folks in the lifting industry from all around the world,” Lonergan said. “We can’t think of a better time than CONEXPO 2014 to celebrate the purchase of the innovative new Shuttlelift CD5520.”
