pen at Cedar Point noted Luke Matheson Meldrums Columbus Equipment sales rep. We are very excited that Meldrum Mechanical made the decision to buy the 100-ton truck crane said Bob Weber head of Columbus Equipments lifting division. The customer was able to visit the Link-Belt factory in Lexington where we went over the product thoroughly. Salesman Luke Matheson worked hard with the customer to make sure we provided all the information and compari- sons with competitors. Brent and his son Dustin went to great lengths as they considered the best purchase for them and we were pleased they made the decision to buy the Link-Belt. Before buying the HTC-86100 Meldrum owned a Link-Belt RTC-8050 rough terrain crane purchased from Columbus Equipment about three years ago. The rough terrain crane was able to go just about anywhere which was very useful because some of the locations we go to are not the best environments including very muddy areas Meldrum said. However he decided a bigger truck crane would allow the company to take on larger more diverse projects so he traded the 50-ton RTC for the new 100-ton Link-Belt. This was a big step for Meldrum as it was the largest new crane they had ever purchased. Their workload was such that they felt the need to step into a larger crane especially a truck crane Weber noted. This truck-mounted 100-ton crane is the largest you can run easily in Ohio Matheson added. Its the best bang for the buck for a truck crane. We enjoy working with Columbus Equipment and had very good support for the RTC Meldrum said. They are very responsive if we have any questions about crane operations. With the new crane under warranty we have utilized them a few times and they have been very supportive. With its focus on providing emergency repairs having good dealer support for its crane was a key consideration for Meldrum Mechanical. At one point the company owned a large truck crane made in Germany. Getting parts was difficult and there was no dealer support. By purchasing a Link-Belt we eliminated those problems Meldrum noted. Columbus Equipment has a long history of servicing cranes and any parts that are not in stock can be delivered from the factory in Kentucky in a day. For a company thats on call 247365 having dependable equipment and dependable dealer support is a necessity. Columbus Equipment Company and Link-Belt are proud to meet that standard. Brent and his son Dustin went to great lengths as they considered the best purchase for them and we were pleased they made the decision to buy the Link-Belt.
