Cranes are very important machines used in various industries such as: construction, production or production facilities, transportation and others. There are many different crane models and each of them has its own characteristics, specifications and configurations.
A special crane model that is widely used today is a crawler crane. The crawler crane is a basic tracked vehicle that has a crane mechanism attached. Thanks to specially developed track properties, this crane can be used in all terrains, even in the gentlest terrain.
Metal rails keep the crawler very stable on the ground and offer increased maneuverability on the ground.
The lifting capacity of the crawler crane varies between 30 and 3000 tons depending on the model. The main advantage of a crawler crane is its ability to move and lift objects and other heavy loads on a construction site with great ease.
In addition, chain runways provide support and increased stability, and no support is required.
The main feature that allows the crawler to lift and move heavy loads without losing control is the counterweight. Counterweights are usually located at the back of the crane and can weigh up to several tons. The crawler crane is a universal machine that can perform a wide variety of lifting tasks on all types of earth's surface and in meteorological conditions.
