These are vehicles with a hydraulic operated boom. The boom is the part of the vehicle that carries the cargo. These trucks are ideal for loading and unloading heavy and awkward loads via highways, streets or construction sites. You can also use them for stationary jobs.
Due to their versatility, flexibility and efficiency, knuckle-boom cranes are the perfect crane to load and unload heavy items from the vehicle itself. The truck also has an additional feature to fold down its size to a lower profile. They are commonly used in narrow streets or tight spaces.
Rough-terrain truck cranes are specifically designed for off-road applications. As the name implies, the truck excels on rough terrains like snow, mud, or gravel-covered grounds. These trucks are made to have sturdy and large industrial tires to withstand and adapt to such environments. Its sole purpose is to carry and transport materials for construction or bridge-building projects.
Last, but not least, the all-terrain crane trucks are frequently used to transport heavy materials across all terrains – like paved roads and uneven surfaces. Their multiple axles allow them to do so and operators can move in any direction with crab steer capabilities. Additionally, these trucks have the ability to withstand harsh weather conditions, allowing workers to use them at any time of the year.
