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

It has taken some time for knuckle boom crane lifts to break into the North American market, but today, more contractors and more business owners are familiar with the advantages of knuckle boom cranes and therefore, the demand for this machinery has significantly increased.

Benefits of Knuckle Boom Technology
A knuckle boom or an articulated crane is similar in looks to a standard crane. The main distinction is that similar to a finger, the boom bends at the knuckle in the middle, hence the name. This particular machinery 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 rather than a stiff-boom or telescopic crane.

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

A telescopic crane was needed more before to do a lot of jobs. These tasks can be completed now utilizing an articulated crane due to the long reaches which compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past ten years. Some models are able to extend as far as 92 feet or 28 meters and even higher.

One of the major benefits of the knuckle boom crane is the precise control the operators have over their load. Loads can be placed with much greater efficiency on the ground or on the roof or on higher floors of buildings. Lastly, knuckle boom crane are easy to maneuver around tricky obstacles on a jobsite and thus, are extremely versatile.
