Knuckle Boom and Telescopic Boom Truck Compare

Knuckle Boom and Telescopic Boom Truck Compare

Dec 09, 2019

Truck mounted crane is easy to use, flexible increasingly been accepted, but more and more used in southern China. Currently on the market the most common telescopic boom Truck crane with folding boom lorry cranes, which are the advantages and disadvantages of these two forms of the crane? How are we to choose? consultation with the truck mounted crane manufacturer, to introduce the advantages and disadvantages of the two truck mounted crane.

Truck Mounted HIAB Articulating Crane

 Knuckle boom trucks work more efficient

Multiple hydraulic cylinders folding boom truck mounted crane boom connected to form a similar joint institutions to complete the action faster, higher work efficiency.

The liberation of telescopic boom truck mounted crane The telescopic boom truck mounted crane used in the hoisting mechanism of a wire rope retractable, roll forward to close the rope, hook rise reversal put a rope hook drop, its efficiency is lower.

  A wider radius of the telescopic boom truck mounted crane In the same arm length, the telescopic boom truck mounted crane truck mounted crane can put a long wire hook, expansion of work in depth, folding boom truck mounted crane is not easy to complete the requirements of the work of the deep.

 

Folding Arm is more suitable for narrow working environment

Folding arm This is determined by its structure, folding boom truck mounted crane is more suitable work environment in factories, warehouses and other small telescopic boom due to its structure is required for display space.

Telescopic arm is easier to control the vertical takeoff and landing Telescopic boom simply using wire rope retractable lifting mechanism can strictly control the taking off and landing hanging objects, folding boom truck mounted crane with hydraulic cylinders, it is difficult to control VTOL lifting objects.

Folding arm can be retrofitted with a variety of aids

Folding boom truck mounted crane with hydraulic cylinder device to form a device similar to the articulated arm robot, the installation of air work platforms and bucket work, fixtures, hanging baskets, plates, forks, high variety of gripper, auger, mounted tire manipulator and tension piles and other aids. Telescopic boom front end is a soft rope, few see the telescopic boom installation of assistive devices.

  Telescopic boom truck mounted crane operation is relatively simple

Telescopic boom Telescopic boom truck mounted crane reel retractable wire hoisting mechanism, the operation is relatively simple, folding boom lorry cranes more than one hydraulic cylinder to complete the robot-like action more difficult to operate.

Folding Arm the vehicle occupied by a smaller space folding boom truck mounted crane The whole boom in the space at a glance, folding boom truck mounted crane cargo can shrink together, the space is relatively smaller, while the telescopic boom truck mounted crane, the crane can only be horizontal, vehicles occupy when traveling larger space.

Telescopic arm easier vehicle chassis installation The telescopic boom is relatively loose in structure, conducive to the dispersion of the vehicle load and center of gravity location far away from the installation, especially when hanging heavy objects, but also conducive to spread chassis axle load. Truck mounted crane folding arm, either the center or rear, because its structure is more concentrated, the center of gravity is easy to concentrate on the chassis of a shaft, often a bridge to a greater load, is not conducive to the vehicle the installation.

Folding Arm prices relative telescopic boom Folding boom truck mounted crane structure is relatively complicated, the accuracy is also required higher manufacturing costs, the overall price is relatively high, the telescopic boom structure is relatively simple, the manufacturing accuracy requirements are also relatively low, the overall cost is relatively low.
