Mobile cranes can be used for the lifting of heavier things and moving them to other places. These cranes have a greater radius for transporting the goods to farther places. If you require mobile crane services in Calgary and the surrounding areas, get in touch with MN Truck & Crane Service Ltd. With us, you can be assured of reliable and efficient accomplishment of the taken project, within the stipulated time. We provide mobile cranes for commercial, industrial, and residential sectors.
We carry different kinds of mobile cranes such as hydraulic mobile cranes, crawler cranes, and all-terrain cranes, to name a few. The hydraulic cranes are robust and are essential for constructing big projects such as building roadways, bridges, and more. Whereas, a crawler crane is convenient and self-propelled, which do not require any setup. But, compared to the crawler crane, an all-terrain crane is multifunctional. As the name suggests, it can move on smooth roads as well as off-roads.
History of Mobile Cranes
In the late 19th century cranes were generally not very movable. Some of the cranes were mounted on flat cars which could provide some kind of movement. Gradually in the 20th century the cranes were developed from being steam powered to petrol powered. The world also saw the first hydraulic truck in 1947.
Previously cranes used to carry additional booms, for increasing the height, which added to the operating cost. In the late 1950s, R.H Neal and F. Taylor added many features to the cranes. They incorporated the internal combustion engine, telescopic jibs, and additional booms into a single crane which made executing jobs much easier.
Then the Coles Hydra Speedcrane was made in 1962. It was modified with the 10-ton hydraulic boom which was followed by 30-ton “Husky” having a four-wheel drive. Later during 1976, Cosmos team created a 25-ton crane that had various added features in it.
Now-a-days mobile cranes have developed a lot, along with many convenient features embedded in them. We have some of these cranes in our facility, to help you with your construction projects and more. Contact us today for more information.
