Knuckle Boom Crane
Knuckle boom cranes have been really popular in Europe, as they have numerous narrow roads. There are a lot greater limitations on trucks in Europe than there are in North America as well.

It has taken some time for knuckle boom crane lifts to break into the North American market, but these days, more contractors and more business owners know the benefits of knuckle boom cranes and hence, the demand for this machine has significantly increased.

Benefits of Knuckle Boom Technology
The knuckle boom or articulated crane is looks quite similar to a standard crane. The main difference is that the boom bends at the knuckle in the middle, similar to a finger, thus the name. This particular machine extends a long way but is can also fold down to a compact size. These are a few of the advantages of using a knuckle boom over a telescopic or stiff-boom crane.

Because it is lighter to run and more compact, the knuckle boom provides a lower profile and an increased payload. To be able to move loads farther, a stiff-boom crane has to be extended higher. A knuckle boom provides horizontal extensions which allow it to reach longer distances at a lower height.

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

The precise control the operators have over their load is one of the major advantages of the knuckle boom crane. As the loads could be positioned exactly where they are needed, on the ground or on the roof or on higher floors of buildings, much greater efficiency is attained. Lastly, knuckle boom crane are extremely versatile as they are easy to maneuver around tricky obstacles on a jobsite.
