Wolff Cranes

The Evolution into Hydraulics
The beginning of the Second World War forced society to become more resourceful overall. Even though the design and development of cranes has evolved significantly, in this specific time these machines progressed greatly. These industrial equipments changed the face of the construction business.

The first hydraulic crane was built during 1946 by crane manufacturer F. Taylor & Sons. This first model was not able to slew or luff and was only utilized by the company. When it joined together with Coles in 1959, this 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 as well as cylinders which were lifted and lowered by a hydraulic pump. Once the business was unable to utilize army vehicles as chassis for the machinery, they started production for designing their own mobile hydraulic cranes.

The 1950s offered cranes which were heralded as amazing machinery that were capable of rebuilding what bombs dropped in the war had damaged. The cranes were responsible for helping put together countries, cities and individual houses. Hydraulic systems became designed more and more complicated. The gear and pump systems could be powered while the trucks remained immobile. Companies like for example Hydrauliska Instustri AB made the very first truck loader crane appearance available on the market.

The A2 crane was introduced during the year 1952. This model was mounted directly to the rear of a Chevy truck. It was complete with hydraulic lifting cylinders and a hooked winch. This particular loader crane started a huge trend in the industry. A company located in Bremen, known as Atlas Weyhausen began manufacturing similar versions of this specific machinery.

Cranes soon after the war were becoming more advanced. Different manufacturers and businesses making the winches developed precise telescopic booms, and the hydraulic pumps were improved and utilizing various materials so as to change the way the crane was developed.
