Crawler cranes are essential for lifting and moving heavy loads. These specialty cranes provide excellent stability and a greater operating radius than other models. The set-up time is also very short. The tracked feature means that these cranes have excellent off-road abilities for any rugged construction site. With a weight capacity of up to 2000 tons you can be sure that these cranes will get the job done. Of course, if you don’t have a crawler crane that is a different story. You will need to utilize crane services on your job site. In the end this a more economical choice anyways.

Crawler Crane Assembly

A large crawler crane isn’t transported assembled. Their sheer size and weight of these machines is too much for the road. A team of technicians will take care of the job with the help of an assist crane. The team will need an adequate area with plenty of space for assembly. The configuration of the crane is customized to the needs of the project at hand. There also needs to be an allocated area to bring the crane down in bad weather.

Lifting Enormous Weight

When you hire crane service you will have the ability to move extremely large weight on your job site. The counterweight on a crane is what enables it to move such big loads. It provides the stability as well as the support. For large scale construction site the counterweights can be several tons, which makes sense with the crane itself can move up to 2000 tons.

Overcoming Shortcomings

When you utilize crane services you enlist the help of trained experts. The crawler crane may have some shortcomings to overcome, but this is no big deal for the professionals. The sheer size of the crane needs to be handled properly. However transporting the machinery in pieces helps a great deal. The crane is moved on the road with special trucks and train wagons. The weight of these large cranes needs to be handled properly as well. For this reason mats are used on the ground to distribute the weight of the tracked crane over a larger area of ground to prevent issues with disturbing the foundation of the job site.
