Specifications of 8 Tadano Heavy Equipment Crane Rough Terrain Crane Type
United Tractors, Jakarta – Crane is one type of heavy equipment whose existence is useful for moving materials from one location to another. Cranes are usually used in large-scale projects, especially construction. The way a crane works is by lifting the material to be moved, then diverting it horizontally, and will be lowered at the destination point.
The weight of the material lifted and moved by the crane is not light but heavy material that we usually find in the industrial sector, distribution, ports, forestry, construction, mining, and other fields.
The presence of cranes in every business sector certainly makes work easier, because some of these heavy equipment can rotate up to 360 degrees. For certain types of cranes, there are also those that have maximum lifting power and a wide moving range of up to tens of meters.
Based on the sector of work, cranes are not only used as heavy construction equipment. But, in the mining, port, and other sectors, cranes also have their own functions. Here are the functions of cranes based on the type and sector of employment.
Crane Functions Based on Job Types and Sectors
With many variants, cranes have their own functions in different fields. To understand more about crane types and their functions, here is a complete review.
- Cargo Crane
Cargo cranes are the most common type of crane found in construction sites. Cargo cranes are usually used to move and lift large and heavy materials. What makes cargo cranes more special than other types of cranes is that they can be attached directly to a truck that serves as a carrier so that you can immediately move the material to a more remote location.

- Hydraulic Crane
This type of crane is only used in the warehousing and workshop sectors. The structure of this crane is simpler than the tower crane. However, the design of hydraulic cranes still lacks the flexibility to move long distances. The rotating ability of this crane is also more limited, which is only 180 degrees.
- Crawler Crane
The reach of a crawler crane is similar to that of a hydraulic crane but not as long. These cranes are commonly found in the construction sector with the appearance of chain wheels that we commonly refer to as crawlers.
These chain wheels serve as an enhancement of work mobility in difficult terrain. However, crawler cranes are difficult to get into the construction area, as they need to be transported first using a specialized transport car.
- Mobile Crane
Unlike tower cranes that can only be stuck in one place, mobile cranes are more flexible and have a longer moving distance. Mobile cranes are commonly found in the construction and mining sectors.
The limited range of tower cranes requires you to use a support truck if you want to move materials to a farther location. With a mobile crane, you can move the lifted material anywhere, because the mobile crane is accompanied by a truck as a carrier.
United Tractors has Tadano rough terrain crane which is a type of mobile crane with a lifting capacity of 13-145 tons. This mobile crane has a compact design and is reliable for use in relatively narrow work areas. Because it is a mobile crane, the rough terrain crane’s travel distance is not limited.
