What are Lattice Boom Crawler Cranes?

Lattice boom crawler cranes, also simply known as crawler cranes, are the largest type of crane available for rent. Due to the size of this type of crane and its tank like features, lattice boom crawler cranes tend to be dismantled into smaller pieces, transported by special trucks or train wagons, and then assembled on the jobsite, and are most often rented for long periods of time. Most types of lattice boom crawler cranes also offer a multi-functional jib system that is designed to help increase the overall lift reach and maneuverability of the crane.

What are Lattice Boom Crawler Cranes Used For?

Since lattice boom crawler cranes are heavy-duty machines, they can be easily used for various applications and industries that require the lifting of heavy items or materials, such as large-scale construction projects. Crawler cranes are also capable of performing lifting operations on different ground surfaces, including soft ground, because the entire weight of the machine is equally deployed on a tracked platform. Thanks to its tracks, lattice boom crawler cranes offer a higher level of stability and can lift more weight than wheeled cranes can.
