Cranes : Hydraulic Boom Truck Cranes

A crane is a piece of mechanical equipment that uses pulleys, winches, and ropes, cables or chains to lift an object. A hydraulic boom truck crane is an industrial crane that is mounted to a large truck for the purpose of loading and unloading equipment or cargo. The crane is comprised of foldable and extendable sections that are actuated by hydraulic pressure. The articulation of the crane components allows it to be used without the need for cables and a winch.
