Our now famous statue of Abraham Lincoln was custom designed and built for Alexander Equipment. It is listed in several publications as one of the most interesting things to see related to Lincoln in Illinois. Visitors from all over the country have stopped to get a picture of the nearly 40 ft tall representation of the 16th president of the United States.

Our team at Alexander Equipment Rental may not be the best musicians (except Tim of course) but they are awesome, qualified service technicians and aerial lift equipment delivery drivers and we had a blast doing this video.
