Mobile cranes - applications and specifics 

Mobile cranes are cranes that are placed on a suitably reinforced truck chassis or on a purpose-built mobile chassis. They are driven by one or two engines. Mobile cranes consist of winches and a pivoting boom that allows the machine to lift, lower and move parts. Mobile cranes have two modes of operation: hoisting and transport. Mobile cranes are most commonly used for handling and transport work and the assembly of industrial facilities. 

Types of cranes 

  • mobile and portable cranes, 
  • rail-mounted cranes, 
  • stationary cranes, 
  • deck cranes, 
  • floating cranes, 
  • railway cranes and on railway vehicles,
