SMITH BROTHERS CRANE RENTAL Inc
“We don’t see problems, we see opportunities to prove ourselves.”
Dennis and Jerry started in the crane business in 1972 and 1973, respectively. Their early one-man cranes were adapted to allow travel control from the operating position. This enabled them to do extensive work with boilermakers building big water tanks and big oil storage tanks in refineries. It was also useful on steel erecting jobs, notably installing columns in tilt-up buildings and structural steel buildings. Today their crane sizes range from 5 to 165 tons capacity. All are hydraulic truck cranes except the 165 ton Demag, which is a hydraulic all-terrain crane.
