Boom Truck Crane

The boom truck crane is a hydraulic-powered crane with a telescoping boom mounted on truck-type carriers. Unlike other freestanding cranes, it is mounted directly on the bed of a common motor truck. In general, you always expect them to be smaller when compared to the largest derrick cranes as they are used for smaller jobs where speed and maneuverability are very important. Because they do not have to be set up they can be used directly as soon as they arrive on the building site, which makes them get a perfect solution of construction work.

Boom truck crane has two parts: the carrier, often referred to as the Lower, and the lifting component which includes the boom, referred to as the Upper. These are mated together through a turntable, allowing the Upper to swing from side to side. The modern boom truck crane is usually single-engine machines, with the same engine powering the undercarriage and the crane. The Upper is usually powered via hydraulics run through the turntable from the pump mounted on the Lower. In older model designs of boom truck crane, there were two engines. One in the lower pulled the crane down the road and ran a hydraulic pump for the outriggers and jacks. The one in the upper ran the upper through a hydraulic pump of its own. Many older operators favor the two-engine system due to leaking seals in the turntable of aging newer design cranes.

Main Features of the Truck Crane

Telescopic Boom

  • The boom truck crane U boom was made of the high-strength steel plate BS70, which is lighter, stiffer. This material actively improves its function.
  • The five U booms have good lifting ability which the single cylinder works and the rope stretching at the same time.

Lifting Mechanism

  • The boom truck crane has double winches lifting mechanism, so that the truck crane can achieve independent operation, simultaneous working and continuously variable transmission.
  • Equipped with anti-winding wire rope.
