Our Lattice Boom Truck Cranes Are Perfect for Your Next Job!
Truck-mounted lattice boom cranes are wheeled trucks that feature a lattice boom crane in front of the operator’s cab. These trucks are often equipped with one cab for driving and for driving and one cab for operating the crane. The dual-cab nature of lattice boom truck cranes means the vehicle will often contain a front and rear (or upper or lower) engines. Some other common features include a long tail and counterweight behind the crane cab and a crane boom that consists of metal strips that cross to create a reinforced structure capable of heavy loads. We have many lattice boom trucks to choose from, so get in touch with one of our seasoned employees to review your options before renting.
A Versatile Lifting Option for Your Next Mid-Atlantic Job
Our rentable lattice boom truck-mounted cranes are valuable due to their versatility. With the ability to simultaneously lift and maneuver, it is easier to support your working load. This benefits the bottom line for your company due to there being no need for separate transportation concerns. Lattice boom truck cranes offer the strength of crawler cranes with the improved ability to distribute loads through outriggers. In addition, our small truck-mounted lattice boom cranes are an economic alternative to telescopic boom cranes for jobs that last for more than a few days.
Lattice Boom Truck Cranes vs. Lattice Boom Crawler Cranes
Hydraulic cranes come truck-mounted, while a crawler crane is a type of crane that can move around due to its caterpillar tracks. Lattice boom truck cranes are powered by a hydraulic system in the form of two hydraulic pumps. These pumps give the crane enough power to lift large amounts of weight on a fairly regular basis. On the other hand, a lattice boom crawler crane uses the track and propulsion system, where the track is the base of the whole machine and provides the equipment with stability and mobility. The crawler crane is more suitable for small to medium job sites with rough terrain, whereas the lattice boom truck-mounted cranes are ideal for big, basic jobs where many things need to be lifted quickly and efficiently. The team at L.R. Willson & Sons will help you determine which option is best for your next job.
