Wolff Cranes

The Evolution into Hydraulics
The onset of the Second World War forced society to become more resourceful in general. Even if the design and development of cranes has evolved significantly, during this particular time these machinery progressed significantly. These industrial equipments changed the face of the construction industry.

The very first hydraulic crane was made during 1946 by crane company F. Taylor & Sons. This very first unit was not able to luff or slew and was only used by the company. When it joined along with Coles during 1959, this specific model opened up the doors for a 50 and 42 Series. A Morris W.D. chassis is what the mobile hydraulic crane was first placed on.

The hydraulic crane by Taylor & Sons operated on a boom powered by a hydraulic pump and cylinders which were lowered and lifted by a hydraulic pump. When the business was not able to use army vehicles as chassis for the machine, they began production for designing their own mobile hydraulic cranes.

The 1950s offered cranes that were heralded as amazing equipments that were capable of rebuilding what bombs dropped in the war had ruined. The cranes were responsible for helping put together cities, nations and individual houses. Hydraulic systems became designed more and more complex. The gear and pump systems were able to be powered while the trucks remained immobile. Companies like Hydrauliska Instustri AB made the first truck loader crane appearance on the market.

In 1952, the A2 crane was introduced. This particular unit was a crane mounted on the rear of Chevrolet truck. It was complete with a hooked winch and hydraulic lifting cylinders. This loader crane started a huge trend in the business. A company located in Bremen, called Atlas Weyhausen began producing similar versions of this particular equipment.

Cranes immediately after the war were becoming more sophisticated. Different manufacturers and businesses making the winches developed accurate telescopic booms, and the hydraulic pumps were improved and using different materials so as to change the way the crane was developed.
