An article from Equipment Today reports that the crane rental market is projected to grow significantly over the next five years.
Citing market data from Graphical Research, construction in Canada and the United States are driving the upswing, especially due to investment in the telecommunications sector. Meanwhile, the primary buyers of new cranes will be crane rental providers, as contractors are increasingly choosing to rent equipment versus purchase new or used equipment.
Crane rental is preferred because this offers contractors a cost-effective option due to low operating costs, no maintenance costs, and access to the most current crane technology.
Whether you rent or own cranes, DICA can work with project managers and lift planners during the project bid phase to identify the most appropriate outrigger support for the job.
“Our fitting process first considers the equipment and the maximum outrigger reaction force to be imposed,” says Kris Koberg, CEO. With this information, DICA Fit Specialists can recommend the crane pad type, thickness, size, and area. “The right crane pad delivers a combination of shear strength, compression strength, and rigidity to support and distribute the imposed loads and pressures over the intended area.”
