Why Truck-mounted Cranes?

Why Truck-mounted

As the name suggests, our truck-mounted cranes are cranes mounted on cargo trucks.

There are more types of mobile cranes than truck-mounted cranes, including rough terrain cranes, wheel cranes, and crawler cranes.
This section presents three advantages of truck-mounted cranes.

Truck-mounted cranes are cargo-handling machines that excel at lifting, loading, transporting and other operations all with a single crane and the cargo truck which the crane is mounted on.

A single truck-mounted crane can perform multiple operations which normally require two types of mobile cranes;. Loading and unloading are usually done with truck cranes, and transporting cargo is usually handled by a cargo truck.

As such, truck-mounted cranes provide a significant cost advantage as they reduce purchase prices, rental fees, and fuel expenses by providing the efficiency of two types of mobile cranes in a single machine.



As truck-mounted cranes are mounted on cargo trucks, they are permitted to drive at the same legal speed as cargo trucks.
Certain cranes are not permitted to drive on public roads, and others are required to drive below speed limits. Truck-mounted cranes however are not constrained by these limits, allowing truck-mounted cranes to reduce both fatigue on long drives and transportation costs.

As transportation time is reduced, truck-mounted cranes can arrive at construction sites quicker, thereby increasing the efficiency of work, and reducing overall construction periods.

Small Enough for Small Spaces

Small enough for small spaces

Truck-mounted cranes have a smaller turning radius than other large mobile cranes.

Residential and central urban areas have many buildings and narrow roads, forcing large cranes to take long detours or requiring blocking roads near the construction sites.

However, truck-mounted cranes make it possible to use a crane wherever there is enough space to park a cargo truck.
