  • Jeff's AED Florida review

    This past week, I attended the annual AED/Condex Tradeshow down in Orlando, FLA. It was my 4th time attending the event, and I found it to be the most informative. From discussions on the show floor to the many sales and marketing seminars I attended, I came away from the event with a renewed sense of focus on our business and of our industry.

You saw their bright Kenworth W900S mixers on jobsites and others started emulating them with equipment. Now, the W900S is the truck you see most when it comes to mixers.”

  • New 21LC3354 Flat-Top Crane From Linden Comansa

    Linden Comansa recently launched the new 21LC335 flat-top tower crane, which is part of the LC2100 series. This new tower crane is the result of the review of the 21LC290, a model that Linden Comansa produced with success since 2002, and which will be replaced by the 21LC335. Both cranes feature similar characteristics in terms of range (up to 74 m - 242.8 ft), maximum freestanding height (64.5 m - 212.9 ft) and versions depending on the maximum load capacity (12 and 18 t - 26,450 and 39,680 lb).
