A mobile crane is a self-propelled mobile vehicle with a telescopic boom with cable or hydraulic drive.

The largest mobile cranes in the world can lift more than 1,000 tonnes, but most can lift between 50 and 250 tonnes. A mobile crane has an outrigger or stabilizer, which is a leg that extends to the side of the crane, allowing a greater "working radius" or distance from the crane to lift the load.

Almost all rods, the smallest moving cranes, have a separate cabin where the crane driver can operate the crane. These are usually killed (rotated) with a tap. Some taps have remote controls.

Mobile cranes are different from truck mounted cranes (mobile cranes do not carry loads that are not associated with crane operation). This is also different from a crawler crane which is a chain crane, and a tower crane which is a crane on a high vertical tower.

With tow trucks, companies tend to own or lease them over the long term because they are an integral part of the company's business, such as supplying building materials.

With mobile cranes, they are usually set up for a specific task, e.g. to lift big yachts from trailers or turbines on wind farm masts, and they have qualified operators. Specific skills are required to operate cranes.

Owning a safe and reliable crane is no big mystery. The key to extending the life of your crane is a regularly scheduled preventive maintenance program and professional inspections. Proper maintenance is the easiest and most important way of maintaining your equipment.

Very rarely does mechanical damage to your equipment occur without first experiencing any warning signs or symptoms. There are several reasons why mistakes can occur. In some cases, cranes are tested to OSHA standards, but the frequency of inspections is not sufficient to meet the crane's operating cycle.

In other cases, items that failed were completely excluded from the verification contract and therefore were not verified.

When considering a preventive inspection and / or maintenance plan, it is important to determine what to look for in a program and to ask your provider specific questions before placing an order. Does the supplier have a good reputation in the industry?

Will they make adjustments from time to time and meet your schedule and needs? Do they meet all general maintenance requirements at each visit, e.g. fluid replacement, bearing lubrication, track inspection and other routine maintenance work?

When evaluating service providers, ask yourself what your current provider is doing for you and what they could do better. It's likely they could have done more, but they did everything they could to meet the criteria in their contract.
