The Different Kinds Of Crane  

A crane is a heavy duty machine that uses the pulling action with the help of strong metal cables that are used in lifting heavy objects in a construction site. This is one of the greatest assets huge construction companies have, without this type of machinery, it would be almost impossible to build the huge towers that exist in today’s world. Before the invention of cranes came into existence, a structure like the great Pyramids in Egypt was built with pure man power, with no machinery in sight. Can you just imagine life without cranes or any of the machines used for construction?  

Crane 

Many types of cranes are part of the building industry, and each with its specific use and the first one is called the Tower Crane. This is probably the largest type of crane and is most evident in the city settings, and this is the reason why there are a lot of sky scrapers in the majority of many cities around the world. The beauty with this crane is that the height levels can be adjusted, and it is mounted on a metal pillar that can stand as high as 250 feet, and to build a tower, they usually start from the bottom going up.  

Do you ever wonder how those huge cranes get to their construction sites? Well, the huge cranes usually come in parts, and they will need trucks to carry the parts to the site, and then assemble them when they are complete. There are types of cranes that are partly an automobile, this is one of the most convenient cranes, and it is called a truck crane. A crane is mounted on top of a truck and gives it more mobility and accessibility compared to other cranes. It will be easier for you to bring your cranes to one location to another without having to think much about setting it all up.  

The crawler crane is one of the most durable, and stable types of cranes, and is often used when the amount of load gets heavy. However, this crane will need to be assembled before you can use, and instead of putting wheels on them. This crane is placed on top of a chassis, with tracks as the source of mobility, and this will be a great combination on a construction site, as it will be easier to maneuver over the dirt road. This is one of the cranes that can lift the heaviest of loads, compared to the rest, and assures the project a safe construction phase. 

There is also a warehouse crane, and this is different from the typical cranes, as this type works inside the realms of a warehouse. It isn’t mobile on the ground; rather they placed it on top of the ceiling, which resembles the arcade game where you try to pick up toys using the crane. The warehouse crane Is used to carry large crates that are usually stored in the warehouse, this makes organizing, and transporting goods out to different suppliers a lot easier and more sufficient, making the business run smoothly.
