Types of cranes available

You may have heard about mobile crane hire and tower crane hire already, but there are a number of other cranes available too.

  • All-terrain cranes

Cranes can’t work in every environment but all-terrain cranes – or ‘truck-mounted cranes’ – are ideal for adapting to different types of land.

  • Overhead cranes

Overhead cranes are also known as ‘suspended cranes’. Great for organised transportation as loads only move in one direction. These cranes are also capable of hanging loads at great heights which increases safety and load control.

  • Heavy cranes

All heavy cranes are renowned for reliability and efficiency – making it easier for you to complete complex projects quickly, easily and safely. Heavy cranes have enormous lifting capacities and meet CPA regulations in accordance with BS7121.

  • Mobile cranes

The self-erecting cranes used for mobile crane hire, have a ‘telescopic boom’ with suspended wires. Mobile cranes are designed for easy assembly, allowing you to quickly relocate them.

  • Tower cranes

Tower cranes are the tallest on the market. Generally used for high-rise buildings, they can balance their own weight whilst carrying counterweight. Tower cranes are ideal if you need to lift heavy weights at height.

  • Mobile tower cranes

Mobile tower crane hire is great  for confined spaces as they reach places that other cranes cannot. Mobile tower cranes are suitable for narrow environments and  combine the benefits of telescopic mobile cranes with those of self-erecting mobile cranes.
