A crane mainly consists of vehicles that are tracked with a crane mechanism attached to it. Thanks to the specially developed crawler crane, this crane can work on all types of ground surfaces, even in the softest places.
Metal rails make rubber cranes very stable on the ground and also offer increased maneuverability on the ground. Crawler crane loading capacity varies between 30 and 3000 tons, depending on the model.
Crane consists of a rotating structure for horizontal lifting and lowering on the running surface of the machine being tracked.
All crawler cranes consist of several parts. The drive system and chains are the main parts of the crane. The engine and control cabin are above the track. The long boom is attached to the cab and can be raised high above the control cabin.
The cable moves through the boom and at the end of the boom there are hooks for gripping, lifting and moving various types of objects and loading from one place to another. Some crane models come with an additional section called a comb attached to the tip of the boom.
With a pole, the crawler crane can then remove objects from their position on the floor. Crawler cranes move like a crawler tractor, but move very slowly on the ground because of their weight.
One of the main functions of a crane can be to lift and move heavy loads without losing control is a counterweight. Counterweights are usually located behind the crane and can weigh up to several tons. Crawler cranes are universal machines that can carry out various lifting tasks on all types of floor surfaces and under meteorological conditions.
