Benefits of Hydraulic All-Terrain Cranes

Solid and even terrain is a rare sight for some projects, especially those in rural areas or on undeveloped land. While most cranes can operate on solid terrain, few can safely perform lifts on mud, gravel, and uneven surfaces. Hydraulic all-terrain cranes offer many benefits that make them a great fit for demanding applications and difficult project sites. As leading providers of mobile crane rentals for all applications, the team at Eagle West Crane & Rigging knows how important it is to choose the right crane for your project. That is why we have provided a list of the benefits of hydraulic all-terrain cranes to help you determine if they are the right choice for your needs.

3 Benefits of Hydraulic All-Terrain Cranes

Hydraulic all-terrain cranes offer the following benefits for any project:

1. Exceptional Mobility and Maneuverability

Each hydraulic all-terrain crane features an all-wheel-drive suspension system, allowing them to safely travel on and off-road as needed for your project. This suspension system is combined with large rough-terrain tires to ensure optimal traction and handling in any environment. Whether you are operating on sand, asphalt, gravel, or loose dirt, a hydraulic all-terrain crane will get the job done right.

2. Enhanced Lift Capacity and Lift Height

Despite being much smaller than a conventional crane, hydraulic all-terrain cranes feature lift capacities between 60 and 500 tons and the ability to lift materials up to 150m. By utilizing a boom, all-terrain cranes can be used for lifting, hauling, and reaching as needed. In addition to raw power, all-terrain cranes utilize outriggers to ensure optimal stability on any surface. This allows for safe and efficient handling of heavy concrete slabs, HVAC units, and other demanding materials.

3. Easy Delivery with Minimal Setup Requirements

Most hydraulic all-terrain cranes are road-legal vehicles. This means that they can be insured and directly driven to your project site instead of being transported on a truck. Each all-terrain crane can then be quickly set up, placed in the desired location, and stabilized to perform each lift as required. This drastically reduces setup time, saving you time and money while keeping your project on schedule.
