The newest addition to Shuttlelift’s dealer network is Coastline Equipment Crane Division, based in Sacramento, Calif. The company operates two locations, with another branch in Santa Ana, Calif., and both will sell and support a range of the carrydeck industrial cranes. The company is a branch of Coastline Equipment, specializing in crane sales and rental operations.

Coastline has launched the partnership with the purchase of 10 Shuttlelift cranes: Five 9-ton (8.16 t) CD3339s and five 15-ton (13.6 t) CD5515-2s. The cranes are now available at both of the company’s locations, for both sale and rental.

Jim Chavalas, sales manager of the company, said that many of his customers have requested carrydeck cranes for their operations in a wide range of applications, including those in the petrochemical, refinery, power plant, industrial and marine sectors.

“We did extensive research into carrydeck industrial cranes and the Shuttlelift line stood out in terms of both its quality and support from Manitowoc Crane Care service,” Chavalas said. “We have a lot of Grove YardBoss cranes in our inventory, which are similar cranes in the Manitowoc portfolio, and we’ve seen how well-made those are and how well they perform. It was a natural choice for us to go with Shuttlelift.”

The 9-ton capacity CD3339 features a 32 ft. (9.75 m) main boom, single-stage outriggers and ergonomic controls. With multiple steering modes and a 7-ton (6.35 t) capacity deck, the crane offers easy maneuverability in tight spaces.

The CD5515-2 has a three-section 41 ft. (12.49 m) boom or an optional four-section, full-power 50 ft. (15.24 m) boom. One of Shuttlelift’s newest cranes, it has an optimized mast design, exclusive pivoting boom nose with 50 ft. boom, and an all-new cab design with hydraulic proportional controls and a hardwired graphical rated capacity indicator. Its 10-ton (9.07 t) deck capacity and three steering modes give it maximum maneuverability.

“Rental outlets are really finding the CD5515-2 and CD3339 to be dynamic tools in their fleets,” said Mike Heinrich, director of sales of industrial cranes and national accounts at Manitowoc. “Customers are driving demand for rental cranes in the 9- to 25-ton range. These two carrydeck cranes fall squarely in the middle.”
