Characteristics of the mobile crane

The mobile crane is a suspended load lifting device. Also called "self-propelled boom crane", it is able to move, with or without load, without the need for a fixed track and remains stable under the influence of gravity.

It is used on construction sites to perform lifting, handling, industrial transfer operations, etc.

Equipped with either a lattice boom or a telescopic boom:

  • The lattice boom is a structure made up of lattice steel frame elements. It has the highest load capacity with a high working height.
  • The telescopic boom allows the length of the boom to be quickly adjusted to the work to be done and to move easily from one site to another.

Some machines can be equipped with a jib that allows the lifting height to be increased beyond the limits allowed by the existing boom.

The mobile crane is fully equipped. There are wedge plates that serve to wedge and stabilize the machine, hydraulic cylinders and an anti-collision system to ensure the safety of the machine. 

In self-propelled cranes, the crane has a single cabin for the driver's cab containing the crane maneuvering and vehicle driving services. This is in contrast to the forwarder crane, which is designed with two separate cabins that separate the vehicle operation and the boom controls.
