All-terrain cranes are a type of crane designed to traverse rough and uneven terrain, such as swamps, dunes, mud, and snow. All-terrain cranes can be found working in construction sites in remote areas that may not be accessible by normal trucks or cranes. These specialized machines are primarily used for lifting and moving large objects at a construction site, as well as for erecting heavy structures like bridges and skyscrapers.
Small Cranes Suitable for Large TasksAll-terrain cranes are able to tackle difficult terrain due to their smaller size, greater mobility and increased stability on steep inclines. The main body of the crane is mounted on four or more large tires which can move independently of each other allowing the crane to make sharp turns without damaging the ground underneath it. The use of stabilizers further enhances the machine’s ability to traverse difficult terrain while remaining steady during hoisting operations.
Advanced Features and CapabilitiesAll-terrain cranes come equipped with several features such as adjustable outriggers which can be extended or retracted depending on the terrain they are being used on. The boom has multiple sections which can be adjusted to lift loads of varying weight and heights. Additionally, all-terrain cranes have advanced safety systems integrated into their design such as load moment indicators (LMI) which measure how much weight is placed on the boom so operators know when it reaches its load limit.
Efficient Lifting SolutionsAll-terrain cranes provide an efficient way for lifting heavy objects at construction sites where regular-sized trucks or cranes may not be feasible due to tight space requirements or challenging terrain conditions. They offer increased portability and flexibility over regular crawler or truck mounted cranes since they require no additional setup time between jobsite relocations making them ideal for working in remote areas far away from existing roads or railways.
