Boom Truck used for Crane Services

Boom Truck

A boom truck serves multiple purposes by using a boom winch to recover or transport heavy items to inaccessible areas whether a ditch, hillside or to the top of a building. A boom winch mounted in the bed of a large truck can transport construction material and equipment to a site from streetside, while a boom truck equipped with a cherry picker can allow an arborist to access treetops.

Rough Terrain

 A rough terrain crane is subclass of a hydraulic crane. As a self-propelled crane mounted on an undercarriage with four rubber tires, rough terrain cranes are specifically designed to operate on off-road and rough applications and surfaces. Designed specifically for pick-and-carry operations, the rough terrain crane is used for building bridges, operations in power and chemical plants and refineries and for large-scale construction projects.


In the crane industry, the all terrain crane is considered the luxury version of a mobile hydraulic crane, being likened to driving a Hummer or Range Rover on pavement. All terrain cranes can be considered a hybrid between a mobile truck crane and a rough terrain crane. Another big selling point of this crane is its multi-functional capability to travel on all kinds of off-road terrain and as well as down highways at top speeds.

Mobile Hydraulic

Hydraulic truck cranes are mobile cranes that can lift thousands of pounds using hydraulics. Hydraulics relies on forces being transmitted through oil pushing the boom’s pistons in opposite directions to lift thousands of pounds. Hydraulic truck cranes are essential to building major projects: bridges, buildings, airports, roadways, and more. What would take hundreds of men and hours to accomplish, a crane can do in minutes.


A crane is a type of machine, generally equipped with a hoist, wire ropes or chains, and sheaves, that can be used both to lift and lower materials and to move them horizontally. It is mainly used for lifting heavy things and transporting them to other places. It uses one or more simple machines to create mechanical advantage and thus move loads beyond the normal capability of a human. Cranes are commonly employed in the transport industry for the loading and unloading of freight, in the construction industry for the movement of materials and in the manufacturing industry for the assembling of heavy equipment.
