A Truck Crane (also known as a truck mounted crane or crane trucks) is similar to an all-terrain crane except that they are designed as cranes that are mounted onto a truck body, making them more accessible on-road with the ability to travel longer distances, faster. Truck cranes work just like most other mobile cranes in that a cantilevered arm or boom has the ability to lift and move heavy loads and be extended if possible too.
Crane trucks are designed to lift heavy loads. They are often used at construction sites, where they can be used to move large pieces of machinery or assemble building components. Trucks that feature truck cranes are commonly referred to as ‘truck mounted cranes’. Not all crane trucks are the same. It’s important to understand what makes them unique, how they work, and why they’re necessary if you plan on working with or around them.
Crane trucks are most often used for engineering purposes on construction sites, when the lifting of large objects and materials are needed. However, they are also used often in the importing and exporting of cargo, vehicles, and other load-moving sectors which require the relocation or restructuring of heavy objects.
Cranes are an essential part of the construction industry, but crane trucks have many uses that go far beyond construction sites. From transporting materials to building towers, cranes are unique pieces of equipment that can be used in a variety of ways
When determining the lifting capacity of a crane truck, it all depends on which make and model of crane you choose to hire. In our range of truck cranes, the lifting capacity is between 2.5 to 16 tonnes. At Concord Cranes, we recommend asking one of our crane specialists about the services you require and the capacities you need to be able to lift, and they will be able to recommend the right crane for you.
