STRAIGHT VS. KNUCKLE CRANES

GREATER OUTREACH

Straight-boom cranes provide greater ability to reach over walls, fences and obstacles. They can also reach high places as well as below ground level, to provide for higher productivity on the work site.

MORE ACCURATE LOAD PLACEMENT

Straight-boom cranes provide for safer handling of cargo through more accurate placement of loads. They lift straight up and down, making loading in narrow spaces possible, with reduced risk of damage to the cargo.

SUPERIOR DURABILITY

Straight-boom cranes contain hoses and cylinders that are concealed within the body of the crane and are therefore better protected against abrasions and the elements than knuckle-boom cranes, giving their components a greater durability and longer lifespan.

UNLIMITED RANGE OF ROTATION

Straight-boom cranes are capable of handling cargo whether positioned high or low, as well as capable of hoisting them to any desired position effortlessly thanks to the boom’s continuous 360-degree range of rotation, while the rotational range of knuckle-boom cranes remains finite.
