Folding Boom Crane Rentals

Folding Boom Cranes for Hire in BC

Folding boom cranes are one of British Columbia’s most popular crane rentals. The folding boom crane is also known as a knuckle boom crane, loader crane or picker crane due to its design and flexibility of motion. Although folding boom cranes still use a hydraulic winch to lift objects, there are some key differences between folding boom cranes and stiff boom cranes. Unlike stiff boom cranes, folding boom cranes are built with two booms that have the ability to fold.

Folding boom cranes are often referred to as knuckle boom cranes because their shape often resembles a knuckle when folding. Because of this knuckle shape and design, these types of cranes have the ability to maneuver in and out of tighter spaces with more flexibility.




With up to 160’ reach, and unlimited variable outrigger configurations, these cranes can lift in areas with tight access.

What are Knuckle Boom Cranes Used for?

Renting a knuckle boom crane in British Columbia from Eagle West Crane & Rigging can help boost the productivity of any job or construction site. With the main boom and outer boom attached by a knuckle, this type of crane is best used for those hard to access areas where other cranes cannot go. One of the biggest benefits of renting a folding boom crane is its ability to downsize and fold down its knuckle boom when being transported.

Advantages of Renting a Folding Boom Crane

At Eagle West Crane & Rigging, we supply a range of knuckle boom crane rentals from 20‐ton to 200‐ton with load capacities up to 78,000lbs. One of the main advantages of a folding boom crane is having the ability to set up quickly in tight areas and sites with overhead obstructions.
