Knuckle Boom Crane
In Europe, Knuckle boom cranes have been extremely popular, since the streets are often narrow. There are a lot greater restrictions on trucks within Europe than there are within North America too.

Knuckle boom cranes have taken some time to break into the material handling market within North America, but these days, more contractors and more business owners know the advantages of knuckle boom cranes and hence, the demand for this specific type of machine has significantly increased.

Advantages of Knuckle Boom Technology
An articulated crane or a knuckle boom is similar in looks to a typical crane. The main distinction is that the boom bends at the knuckle in the middle, like 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 utilizing a knuckle boom rather than a telescopic or stiff-boom crane.

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

In the past, there were lots of jobs which used to require a telescopic crane. These tasks are capable of being completed now utilizing an articulated crane due to the long reaches which compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past decade. Several models could extend as long as 92' or 28 meters and even higher.

Amongst the main advantages of the knuckle boom crane is the accurate control the operators have over their load. Loads can be positioned with much greater efficiency on higher floors of buildings, on the ground or on higher floors of buildings or on the ground on the roof. Last of all, knuckle boom crane are easy to maneuver around difficult obstacles on a jobsite and thus, are extremely versatile.
