Simple, cost-effective operations and easy dispatch are the hallmarks of a truck crane, reports American Cranes and Transport in the May 2019 issue. Ken Martinek, vice president and general manager of Stevenson Sales and Service, says when a truck crane can be utilized, it offers cost efficiencies that include fast and easy transport and erection.
According to Martinek, some people in the industry have theorized that boom trucks and all-terrain cranes would make truck cranes obsolete. This has not materialized, and several crane manufacturers have continued to develop their truck crane product lines.
Cranes in this category are well-suited to set up on SafetyTech® Engineered Thermoplastic Outrigger Pads or FiberMax® FRP Composite Outrigger Pads.
