The Best Crawler Cranes Available Online

Crawler cranes are lifting machines mounted on tracks ideal for working on soft surfaces. The crawler cranes are very stable due to the steel tracks unlike cranes on tires. Also, crawler cranes can lift heavier loads when compared to the cranes on tires. A typical crawler crane consists of a track propulsion system, operator’s cab, control area (known as a boom) and an engine located on the top of the track. The boom has cables with which loads are lifted, but there are crawler cranes models with extended booms able to stick horizontally. This attachment that extends the booms is called jib, and enables a crawler crane to move items away from its center.
