    About Us

    Colton Crane Company was formed in 1982 when Tom Colton took the Linkbelt franchise in a buyout from his former company Milo Equipment. Tom had a fourteen year career in equipment distribution as the John Deere Link Belt and Grove dealers when Colton purchased the Linkbelt franchise for Southern California. Through the years Colton Crane Company represented a number of great crane lines including American Crane, P&H, Kobelco, Krupp, Demag and Terex and sold many other cranes from it's used equipment business.

    The company was part of pioneering some of the foreign manufactured cranes, such as Krupp, Demag and Kobelco. Colton Crane was given the Krupp dealership and was instrumental in introducing the All Terrain Cranes to the West Coast. The California bridge formula called for axles spreads that none of the German manufactured cranes could meet, but Colton's team was the 1ST to raise the 3rd Axle of 5 Axle All Terrains, thus achieving the required axle spread. The company sold the first new 175 Ton All Terrains in the State and there popularity saw many deliveries over the past fifteen years.

    When Grove purchased Krupp in 1996, Colton Crane reached a hand shake agreement with Mannessmann Demag to promote, sell and service the Demag product line. The product was technically superior to any previously seen on the West Coast, and after several years of hard work, customer's begun to pruchase the Demag's for their crane fleets. Colton Crane was the first to sell these technically superior cranes into the California oil refinery companies. Chevron purchased four (4) new machines including a 25 Ton City Crane, 60 Ton 3 Axle AT, 100 Ton 4 Axle AT and a 165 Ton Five Axle AT. A Few years later, British Petroleum purchased a Five Axle 240 Ton AT which greatly increased their plant maintenance capability.

    Over the years, Colton Crane sold over 60 new and used Demag Cranes from the AC25 City Crane to the 650 Ton AC1600. Colton Crane also had a capable service department which for a period of time rebuilt and or refurbished P&H 300 Ton Lattice Boom Truck Cranes (P&H 6250) and Crawlers (P&H 5300) for various job assignments around the World.

    Colton Crane is now principally involved in crane sales to customers who have specific needs for there company. The company has developed a very good network among end users, manufacturers and other crane outlets across the globe, and can add substantial value to crane customers who need quality and reasonable pricing.
