How to Choose the Right Crane for Your Project

How to Choose the Right Crane for Your Project

When you have a construction project on deck, you need to be certain you have all the equipment you need. Most jobs require a crane, but different ones are available that all have different capabilities. You do not want to end up with something that cannot handle what you need. Here are some questions to ask to figure out what crane is best.

What Load Weights Will You Have?

This is a fairly basic question to ask yourself. You need to consider what type of construction project you are about to undertake and what items you are going to move with the crane. Larger commercial projects will likely require you to have something that can really move a lot in one load. 

What Radius Does Your Crane Need?

You also need to take the square footage of the worksite into consideration. Some cranes can span upward of 150 feet. Additionally, you need to think about who needs to be operating the crane. If you need something to perform a heavy-duty task, then you should look into getting an all-terrain crane, which is capable of a wide variety of tasks.

From rough-terrain cranes to gantry cranes, we carry a variety of different types. To find the crane for your needs, contact General Steel Crane & Rigging in Hopkinsville today.
