What are the different types of cranes?
At NessCampbell Crane + Rigging, we have a wide variety of cranes for an array of jobs. We work on downtown buildings, baseball stadiums, aircraft carriers, wind farms, wineries, and small residential projects. There isn’t a job that we haven't completed.
Here is a list of the different types of cranes NessCampbell Crane + Rigging can provide:
- Crawler Cranes
- All-Terrain Cranes
- Rough Terrains
- Conventional Truck Cranes
- Hydraulic Truck Cranes
- Boom Trucks
- Specialty Equipment
Crawler cranes are ideal for large construction jobs. These cranes move into position on two tracks. The immense size and weight of these cranes require heavy transport and logistical requirements. The NessCampbell heavy haul division takes care of all of the planning, permits, and logistics when hauling these cranes.
The versatile all-terrain cranes have lifting ranges of 50 to 600 tons and between five and 16 axles. Our variety of all-terrain cranes give you the flexibility to use the appropriate crane for your job.
Adaptability is the name of the game for conventional truck cranes. Although some have the ability to lift upwards of 300 tons, the reason conventional cranes are in high demand is that they are used in many different industries, although they are popular in construction. Use with a wide variety of rigging, these truck cranes are excellent for tilt-up construction and erection of steel structures.
Rough Terrain Cranes
Rough terrain cranes have great maneuverability on any job site. While they don’t lift as much or reach some of the same heights, rough terrain cranes can still lift between 50 and 160 tons. The smaller size allows more flexibility at any job site no matter the conditions. These cranes are outfitted with outriggers for added stability.
When there’s a lot of small lifting jobs of similar weights at a job site, hydraulic truck cranes are the answer and their speed makes loading and unloading more efficient. These cranes are also road legal, making transportation a snap.
Handy on almost any job site where several, smaller lifts are required, boom trucks bring a level of precision to every lift. Think of boom trucks as the “worker bees” of a construction site and our everyday crane.
In addition to the above cranes, we also have a selection of smaller lifts, ideal for industrial, commercial, or manufacturing plant moves. Gantries, forklifts, spider cranes, and more can lift varying weights within a facility. In many cases, these cranes move machinery around the facility or take it outside to be loaded onto a trailer for transportation. These pieces of equipment are used when very sensitive loads are being moved, such as medical equipment.
In addition to lifting services, NessCampbell also offers heavy hauling, rigging, and engineering services for our customers. Do you have an upcoming project that could use one of the cranes above? Give us a call and find out how we can help.
