United Tractors, Jakarta – Cargo cranes are heavy equipment that is often used to support small to large scale projects. Cargo cranes play an important role in the construction, forestry, agriculture, and other sectors because they are used to lift, lower, and move heavy materials.

Just like any other heavy equipment, cargo cranes also have their own types. Based on the carrier, cargo cranes are divided into two types, namely rough terrain crane with a capacity of 30-145 tons and telescopic boom cargo crane which is a crane with a capacity ranging from 3 to 15 tons.

For this special discussion, we will get to know more about  telescopic boom cargo crane. We summarize all things cargo cranes complete with the best cargo crane product series!

Function of Cargo crane
As mentioned earlier, in general, cargo cranes function is to lower, lift, and move heavy materials. For more details, here are the functions of cargo cranes in activities in various sectors.

  • Lifting Highly Loaded Materials
    Basically, the function of cargo cranes is similar to other types of heavy crane equipment, which is to lift high-loaded materials. Materials with large loads cannot be lifted directly by humans. That’s why cargo cranes are needed, with a maximum weight limit of the load lifted, which is 15 tons.
  • Moving Heavy Materials from One Point to Another
    A cargo crane is equipped with a truck as a carrier. Unlike tower cranes that must be installed before they can operate and can only be used in one place, cargo cranes can move heavy materials from one point to another with a longer moving distance compared to tower cranes.
  • Transporting Cargo with Long Distance
    What makes cargo cranes the most widely used heavy equipment in loading and unloading activities is their function of not only lifting heavy goods, but also moving them long distances.
    Equipped with a truck, cargo cranes allow you to take heavy materials anywhere by simply placing them on the cargo deck. This is why cargo cranes can be a very helpful construction machine for lifting building materials. The travel distance is not limited. So, you don’t need to use other heavy equipment if you want to move heavy materials over a relatively long distance.

Examples of Cargo crane Usage in Each Sector
Based on their use in each sector, crane types are also divided into several parts. An example is hoist crane. Hoist crane is a type of crane that is commonly found in workshops or warehouses, because this crane must be mounted on the ceiling. This type of crane functions is to raise goods from the bottom to the top or vice versa. Its limited movement makes hoist crane can only be used in sectors that move indoors.

Then, what about cargo cranes? Because cargo cranes are equipped with trucks as carriers and have decks for transporting, cargo cranes can be called as more versatile heavy equipment compared to other heavy equipment. Here is an example of how cargo cranes are used in several sectors.

  1. Forestry Sector
    For forest projects such as lifting large logs or moving large trees, cargo cranes can make your forestry project work more efficiently. With its high lifting power, uprooting a large tree by its roots and transporting it to another place is not a difficult thing to do when using a cargo crane.
  2. Warehousing and Workshop

    Even large workshop equipment can be lifted and transported using a cargo crane. It’s not just workshop equipment. Even vehicles with a maximum weight of 15 tons can be lifted using cargo cranes.
  3. Construction Sector
