Mobile Tower Crane Vs Telescopic Crane

A large five axle mobile tower crane can set up alongside a 30 metre high building and be ready to work in about 15 minutes. It can place a load of up to 2 tonnes up to 47 metres radius. The equivalent All Terrain needed to do the same lift would be at least a 160 tonne crane with long jib.

The operator has an optimum view of the area and the loads are quickly ‘trolleyed’ along the horizontal jib where a regular telescopic has to move its heavy boom in and out, and or telescope/ retract in order to shift loads from one spot to another, consuming substantially more fuel and time.

A contractor can therefore shave days, if not weeks off of the project completion time by switching from a more expensive, larger capacity telescopic crane to a self erecting mobile tower crane.
