If you work with cranes then chances are at one point you might have confused the two main types of booms in the market. Knowing what you have and if it will work for you is very important. It ensures that you order the right crane for whatever tasks you have in mind and cuts down on the waiting time. Here are the main structural differences between the stiff boom and folding boom cranes.

Straight boom

As the name suggests, a straight boom crane, also known as a stiff boom has a single straight pole. It is ideal for big spaces since it cannot be folded up. Stiff cranes are found in areas where there is enough space for movement especially on the roads.

The straight boom has no hinges but it expands like a telescope. As such, you have more room to choose how long or short you would want it to be as you work on different areas.

Used for

●       Reaching high areas, it can work up to 57 meters

●       Works on rough terrain

●       Lifting materials to higher workplaces

Used for

●       Smaller tighter spaces

●       Areas that need regular height changes

●       Hard to reach areas in any worksites
