TRUCK LOADER CRANES
A truck loader crane (knuckle-boom crane) is a hydraulically powered articulated boom fastened to a truck, and is used for loading/unloading the truck it is mounted on. The numerous sections of the lifting arm or the boom can be folded into a small space when the crane is not in use. The crane has one or multiple telescopic sections.
These cranes have an excellent combination of power and speed. They are suited for application where load lifting and speedy movement are prime requirements of the customer.
Sometimes these cranes may be provided with a handy wired or wireless remote control system to facilitate crane-mounted hydraulic control levers. This arrangement the operator is moving around the vehicle to have a good view of the load being handled..
INDUSTRIAL YARD CRANES
These are ideal cranes for yard and industrial plant use. Excellent pick and carry capacities combined with a powerful engine provide the versatility needed in plants, ports, shipyards, airports, railway workshops and electricity boards. With 4X4/ 4X2 wheel drive and coordinated steering ensures maneuverability in tight spaces. The compact size make these cranes very popular for yard applications.
ROUGH TERRAIN CRANES
Rough Terrain cranes feature rugged deep box section frames that are designed tough loading situations, which are very prevalent on construction sites. Front and Rear steering modes allow easy maneuvering in tight spaces. Pick and carry and static applications are typical for rough terrain; PLS RT models feature excellent on tyre operation to enhance productivity. These cranes are equipped with a powerful driveline that may switch from a 4X4 to a 4X2 mode on the move and negotiate very rough ground conditions with great ease.
WAGON MOUNTED RAIL CRANES
Wagon mounted rail crane, is a type of crane used on rail for several applications uses: freight handling in goods yards, maintenance and railway electrification. The crane has a rotating superstructure that is mounted on a sturdy base frame. The superstructure supports the boom and provides all the lifting and operating mechanisms; an operator’s cabin is usually. The wagon is fitted with buffers and/or coupling arrangement to allow the crane to be moved by a locomotive. The entire superstructure could also be mounted on a self- propelled carrier to eliminate the requirement of a locomotive to haul or shift the crane.
The crane is hydraulically powered through pump that is driven by an engine of adequate power. The engine and all mechanisms of the crane rest on the revolving superstructure. This crane comes with a telescopic boom and 360 degree revolving turntable making the lifting operation very easy irrespective of the position of the loads to be handled.
