Choosing the right truck-mounted crane for your needs is a more complicated task. However, when making a selection, many major factors must be considered.
Crane lifting weight and spacing
The basic work of a crane is hoisting. The second problem is how far apart the objects to be hoisted.
All cranes are graded according to their “ton/meter” level or the tonnage to be increased multiplied by the required bending and extension meters.
For example, to lift 800KG at 15Km (from the core of the crane, not from the edge of the truck), it must be 0.800×15=12 tons/meter.
Most cranes can be widened with a different number of hydraulic presses, that is, how far their telescopic boom is widened. Therefore, it is a good starting point to purchase a crane with a minimum length of the pallet.
Truck specifications for mounted cranes
The second difficulty is that you must install the crane on a very large truck and how much your gravity gradient dictates. In order to better enhance the diversity of this problem, you expect the crane to be behind the car cab or on the opposite side of the tray. Placing it behind the car cab can prevent obstacles and give you great load coordination capabilities. However, in Australia, the front axle load limit is a major factor. This means that if it is installed behind the car cab, even in Superheavy cranes on empty trucks may also be unreasonable and legal. Authoritative crane experts can answer this practical problem for you, but a lighter and compact crane is a good starting point.
Wireless communication control or manual control of the crane?
Although the purchase cost of a manually controlled crane is relatively low, unless there are two workers on your truck, they will have to travel more and more, and they must take a longer period of time to load and unload. The wireless communication remote control crane allows the operator to monitor and control the load from the side of the load. The manual crane requires you to align the load at both ends, walk back to the control equipment to reduce the load, and it is likely to do that two or three times for each increase. Many building constructions require many people on the load side to monitor the reduction, and wireless communication control or a second person on the truck must be used.
