Self-Erecting Vs. Mobile Cranes

The Self-Erecting tower crane is replacing mobile cranes for the construction of low rise projects of up to 8 floors, and the benefits are noteworthy:

  • Can be positioned close to the building because they operate in a very small footprint
  • Less likely to obstruct movement around the site
  • Lifts are performed quickly and accurately
  • Folding structural design means self erecting tower crane can be operational in 1-2 hours
  • For projects of six months or more, the hire cost of a self erecting tower crane is less than a mobile crane, all things considered
  • Operator has more visibility and possibility of blind lifts is reduced
  • Reduced fuel costs
  • Increased Safety
  • Can be used for job sites with tight boundaries and have ability to reach areas where mobile cranes cannot
  • Job completed faster
  • Lower groundwork and maintenance costs
  • Longer life
  • Better resale value
  • More flexibility
  • Increased Productivity with bigger coverage
  • Bigger lifting capacities at same radius

The End.
