INDEPEDENCE, Ohio — ALL Crane Rental of Pennsylvania LLC, a member of the ALL Family of Companies, was recently on site at the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh for the first U.S. visit of artist Florentijn Hofman’s globe-hopping giant rubber duck. The duck, which is custom built under Hofman’s supervision for each city it visits, required the assistance of a 110-ton Grove TMS9000 hydraulic crane to be set afloat.
To date, the duck has toured New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Holland, Hong Kong and France. Because the duck is customized for each location it visits, the lift equipment required can vary. In Pittsburgh, the duck was inflated to a height of 40 feet, demanding the services of ALL’s TMS9000 crane.
