An ideal solution for Layton’s Tree Service

National Crane

boom trucks are gaining traction in the

tree service industry, as found out by

Layton’s Tree

Service.

The NBT55 has given the company plenty of lifting

capacity from a compact footprint, enabling it to fit onto

job sites without much space

Layton Holsinger, founder and president of the

Davidson, North Carolina-based company, said the per-

formance of National Crane boom trucks has been one

of the keys to the company’s efficiency. The most recent

addition to its fleet is the NBT55.

“I’m a National Crane man, who makes the ideal

boom truck for tree work which is why I’ve

owned four or five of them over the years. When

you grab a heavy load with the NBT55, you

almost don’t realize it.

 That’s how stable this crane is. You can extend

the boom out to its maximum hydraulic reach

and the machine always operates precisely,

making it perfect for tree removal.”

The NBT55 features a 55 USt capacity and 128 ft

boom. It is one of the first boom trucks on the market

to offer fully integrated machine control and a Rated

Capacity Limiter (RCL). Its outrigger beam position sens-

ing system aids in load chart selection.

Tree service is a precise task that requires smooth

operation and precise lifting capabilities.

Layton’s Tree Service was founded in 1973 to provide

tree trimming and removal services to the metro

Charlotte area. The company has remained family owned

and operated since its inception, and has grown to nine

employees that cover a 100-mile radius around Charlotte.

Trio Work Industrial

Site

The Dutch contractors, Dunnewind Groep B.V, put three

Case excavators to work on an important project: the

site preparation of the new industrial park

“Oosterparallelweg” in Staphorst.

The work consists broadly of the site preparation

of 170.000 m

²

and the

CASE excavators

- a new CX300D

and two CX250C already in the fleet - are presently

getting the surface ready for construction and infra-

structures (sewage, landfill and excavation of sites and

roads and the installation of pavements).

The operators in the company all like working with

their Case equipment and, when asked what they prefer

in particular, they highlighted their strength and

controllability.

One operator, Gerwin Lamberink , especially appre-

ciates the lifting power and the comfortable cabin of his

machine considering he has to work long hours.

The owner of the Dunnewind Group (Edith

Breemhaar-Dunnewind) highlights the fuel efficiency

that allows her a remarkable saving on fuel and

maintenance.

Making use of the efficiencies and productivity that

technology delivers, all three machines are equipped

with Leica GPS.
