Big B Crane Takes on the Bend County EpiCenter Using Link-Belt Cranes
In the last 24 months Big B Crane of Burleson, Texas has purchased six Link-Belt lattice crawler cranes from local Link-Belt Cranes distributor, HOLT Crane & Equipment of Irving, Texas. In June 2021, Big B Crane purchased two 238 HSLs and a 248 HSL, a 298 HSL in September 2021, a 348 Series 2 in June 2022, and a second 298 HSL in July 2022.

“We have several 200-ton cranes, most of which are Link-Belt 248’s (H5, HSL, H II) and we hang a lot of steel with them,” said Kenneth Green, Operations Manager, Commercial Construction Division at Big B Cranes. “The features I like about the Link-Belt 248s are the size of the cab and the comfort/location of the controls. The thing I like most is the ease of mobilizing them. Four to five people are able to fully self-assemble and disassemble these cranes and in really hard to get places.”

For the Fort Bend County EpiCenter project, Big B Crane purchased a new Link-Belt Cranes 300-ton 348 Series 2 lattice crawler crane. The crane delivered directly to the jobsite from HOLT Crane & Equipment and went into service the second week of June 2022. Three months later in early September 2022, the crane already logged over 500 hours.
