Choosing The Right Equipment For Your Project In Sydney
Renting a crane isn’t a small investment. These machines are expensive, difficult to transport, and challenging to operate if you haven’t planned properly. Every project is different. So, you have to do a bit of research yourself first. There are many companies that provide crane hire services at reasonable prices.
Different Types of Cranes
Let’s take a look at the different options you have when deciding which crane to choose for your project:
These cranes combine the onsite, rough-terrain mobility with the ability to use highways and tarmac roads. Most all terrain cranes have four or five axles with all-wheel drive, allowing operators to use them for pick-and-carry operations of heavy loads.
Truck crane mount on a vehicle. This allows personnel to easily transport the crane to and from the worksite. On-site, the rigging stabilizers usually extend horizontally from the out-board chassis. You can vertically adjust these in order to keep the crane (and its load) stable and suitable for the terrain.
Rough-terrain cranes are mounted on a flatbed undercarriage. They run by an engine that moves the vehicle as well. Typically, contractors use these for off-road pick and carry. Just like truck cranes, rough terrain cranes carry a crane rigging system that stabilizes the machine on uneven ground and hillsides.
