Boom Trucks and cranes are both utility vehicles. The main purpose of both vehicles is to lift and move heavy loads or equipment from one location to another. Nevertheless, there are some differences between the two. Boom trucks may be used to elevate workers and tools, where a safe and stable elevated working platform is needed.
Cranes are used to lift heavy loads to great heights. Boom lifts and cranes are made for different tasks, and they do not have the same capabilities. A boom lift does not have the same lifting strength as a crane, and a crane is not suitable for lifting workers.
Rough Terrain Cranes are compact cranes with a single cab for both driving and lifting operation and a telescoping boom. As their name implies, rough terrain cranes can travel over rough surfaces as they have high ground clearance and heavy-duty wheels.
All-Terrain Cranes are a combination of a standard truck crane and a rough terrain crane. All terrain cranes come with the maneuverability of a rough terrain crane and can travel on a variety of surfaces. They are ideal on jobsites in remote areas or with no road access.
The maximum reach of a crane depends on the size and type of crane. For example, an 18 ton Carry Deck crane can reach up to 79′ 6″ (with Boom Extension) while All-terrain cranes offer up to 197’ of reach height. Knowing the height requirements of your jobsite and the weight of the objects you will be lifting is critical for determining the correct type of mobile crane for your needs. To learn more about the maximum reach of mobile cranes and to discuss your needs, please contact our knowledgeable team to determine the ideal mobile crane for your project.
