Knuckle Boom Crane
Knuckle boom cranes have been extremely popular within Europe, because they have a lot of narrow streets. There are much greater restrictions on trucks in Europe than there are within North America too.

It has taken some time for knuckle boom crane lifts to break into the North American market, but these days, more contractors and more business owners are familiar with the advantages of knuckle boom cranes and hence, the demand for this specific kind of equipment has increased significantly.

Benefits of Knuckle Boom Technology
An articulated crane or a knuckle boom is similar in looks to a typical crane. The main distinction is that similar to a finger, the boom bends at the knuckle in the middle, hence the name. This equipment extends a long way but is also capable of folding down to a compact size. These are some of the benefits of using a knuckle boom over a telescopic or stiff-boom crane.

The knuckle boom provides an increased payload since it is more compact and lighter to run. These cranes provide a lower profile too. To be able to carry loads farther, a stiff-boom crane needs to be extended higher. A knuckle boom offers horizontal extensions which allow it to reach longer distances at a lower height.

Before, there were a lot of tasks that used to require a telescopic crane. These jobs can be completed now using an articulated crane because of the long reaches which compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past 10 years. Some models are able to extend as far as 92' or 28 meters and even higher.

Amongst the major benefits of the knuckle boom crane is the accurate control the operators have over their cargo. Loads can be placed with much greater efficiency on higher floors of buildings, on the ground or on higher floors of buildings or on the ground on the roof. Last of all, knuckle boom crane are very versatile because they are easy to maneuver around tricky obstacles on a jobsite.
