Truck Mounted Cranes in Edmonton

Truck mounted cranes are referred to frequently as ‘yard’ or ‘shop’ cranes because of their many general applications. A crane is mounted on a motorized vehicle with chassis of standard design, on heavy duty chassis (when the capacity is up to 7.5 tonne), or on special purpose chassis.


Truck cranes are used for handling large and heavy pieces, as in pipe, lumber, or car wheels, as example out of freight cars and flatbed trucks and into and out of storage. They are used on location and in warehouses, and large assembly plants that are ideal for crane truck activities. Various crane attachments add to their ability to handle a wide range of items effectively. Grabs, lings, specialized carriers and magnets are among the accessory equipment that makes them versatile handlers.
