Getting to know what all-terrain cranes are and their uses can help you make an informed decision about whether or not it is the right type of crane for your particular jobsite requirements. At TNT Cranes, we understand how important it is to the right type of mobile crane for the job. That is why we offer a selection of crane services and cranes for rent, including all-terrain cranes.

What is an All-Terrain Crane?

All-terrain cranes are specifically built to handle different types of terrain, under various weather conditions, making them the superior choice for off-road or rough terrain applications. Since this type of mobile crane works equally well on both rough and smooth terrain, it can be easily driven to any jobsite location.

All-Terrain Cranes Uses

As one of the largest mobile cranes available, all-terrain cranes work to combine the mobility of truck mounted cranes with the maneuverability of rough terrain cranes, making them the ideal choice for remote construction sites with no road access. This type of mobile crane can be used in heavy hauling and lifting applications, thanks to its hydraulically powered telescopic boom and four-wheel drive system. All-terrain cranes offer all-around flexibility, making them especially ideal for multi-use jobsites.

Benefits of All-Terrain Cranes

Some of the benefits of all-terrain cranes include:

  • Mobility and maneuverability—With the help of an all-wheel drive steering suspension system, all-terrain cranes can easily move any type of surface, including sand, gravel, dirt, and asphalt. This type of mobile crane also has the capability of travelling from one site to the next without the help of other machinery or trucks.
  • Compact and adjustable design—All-terrain cranes feature a compact design that combines a truck mounted crane with a rough terrain crane, as well as a mobile undercarriage and hydraulic boom that can easily be adjusted to meet any jobsite requirements.
  • Versatility—This type of mobile crane can be used for completing numerous lifting tasks on a variety of different terrains and construction sites.
  • Durability and comfort—All-terrain cranes are not only designed to handle tough worksite conditions but also to provide comfort and ease-of-use to operators. This means that operators will be able to work effectively for a longer period of time, while also experiencing less fatigue.
