HDS mobile and portable (handling) cranes
Hydraulic truck cranes are constructed from a crane positioned on the truck, either between the driver's cab and the box or at the rear of the vehicle. The truck platform has supports arranged on the sides to keep the crane stable during operation.
HDS cranes are primarily used in:
- loading/unloading of building materials and containers;
- smaller construction sites that have difficult access for heavier machinery;
- transporting building materials to upper floors;
- the export of timber from forests.
Mobile cranes (cranes)
They consist of a crane mounted on a truck chassis or a purpose-built self-propelled chassis. Mobile cranes have winches and a swivelling boom.
Applications for mobile cranes
- handling and assembly work;
- large warehouses, logistics centres.
