Unlike stationary cranes, crane trucks — also called truck-mounted cranes — are able to travel on the highway, eliminating the need for special equipment to transport the crane to a work site. They are comprised of two parts: the carrier, or “lower”, and the lifting component or “upper.” Ranging in lift capacity from approximately 14.5 tons to 1,300 tons, most are able to rotate to 180 degrees. Although unable to lift as much as stationary cranes, truck cranes are often used to relocate materials around a job site. Construction Equipment Guide lists used crane trucks for sale from more than two dozen manufacturers, including International, JLG, Grove, Kenworth, Mack, National, Sterling and Tadano.
