For a large commercial and industrial construction company in North Dakota, the Kobelco CK1100G-2 crawler crane is the right machine for the job and a reliable long-term investment.

Industrial Builders, Inc. (IBI) of West Fargo, North Dakota has a massive fleet of cranes and heavy construction equipment serving a wide range of customers and business sectors. IBI’s fleet includes truck cranes, rough terrain cranes, as well as crawler cranes ranging from 50-ton to 275-ton models.

As one of North Dakota’s largest and most successful bridge builders, IBI recently needed a 110-ton crawler crane to complete a specialized bridge reconstruction project. With the help of RTL Equipment, IBI selected the Kobelco CK1100G-2 crawler crane due to its reliability, ease of setup and operation and its third drum option. In addition, the CK1100G-2 and the Kobelco brand, in general, fit well with IBI’s best-value and long-term investment strategy.

“Kobelco’s crawler cranes are extraordinarily reliable, are built to last and retain their value for a very long time,” mentioned Kevin McCrory of RTL Equipment. The Kobelco CK1100G-2 has a maximum lift capacity of 110 tons, a maximum boom length of 200 feet, and a maximum boom plus jib length of 250 feet (190 ft + 60 ft). The CK1100G-2 features the new Hino engine that complies with EPA Tier IV Final Standards as well as innovative fuel saving systems.

RTL has been renting, selling and servicing Kobelco cranes for over fifteen years. Kobelco’s excellent parts and service operations combined with RTL’s commitment to customer support has built a strong reputation among bridge builders and commercial construction companies throughout the Midwest. RTL is an authorized Kobelco dealer for Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
