Popular Crane Service Terms to Know

Crane services are perfect for projects which require lifting materials of significant weight. Cranes are used in a variety of projects including industrial building projects, construction, building a bridge, movie industry projects, and more. There are a variety of different cranes available for rent or hire with specific parts that will be critical for project completion. Here are some basic terms to understand about crane services.

  • Hoist – The hoist of a crane is used to lift heavy loads. The hoist is similar to a vertical pulley system and consists of chains and a hook.
  • Overhead – An overhead crane, has a stationary horizontal track which a chain with a hook or shelf hangs from to move heavy materials horizontally across a project site.
  • Boom – The boom is the long arm which sticks out of a crane and allows it to reach great heights.
  • Mobile – Mobile cranes consist of a platform which can move such as a boat, truck, or train which supports a crane.
  • Truck – Truck cranes are part of the mobile crane family and are cranes which ride attached to a truck.
  • Crane Operator – Crane operators are experienced, licensed people who know how to operate a crane.
  • Gantry – Gantry cranes lift objects vertically with a hoist and can be slid horizontally along the beams of the crane and are often smaller and used for indoor projects.
  • Jib – The jib part of a crane is the horizontal beam at the top of large cranes and is the part which carries the load.

    When a person hires a crane service, safety should be the top priority of everyone on the project.

    Crane services are available to assist people and businesses with hoisting and moving objects. As you probably know, a crane is a tall, heavy-duty machine that is used to move heavy loads, and it has an arm that moves up and down in order to lift things. This way the arm can be positioned overhead, and then be lowered by the crane operator. A crane is mobile like a large truck or piece of construction machinery. Often companies, construction teams, and business owners have to hire crane operators to assist them with moving or hauling large crates, building bridges, or handling building construction. There are many reasons why someone may need a crane service. For instance, shipyards often need mobile cranes for overhead crate lifting. There are also boom trucks that have heavy steel arm parts or jibs that can be used to lift objects or hoist workers into the air. These arms typically have hydraulic systems that allow them to function properly. Crane operators are also hired to deal with industrial equipment transporting. Some devices like this are mounted on gantry structures, which are like overhead bridges. In this day and age, portable hoisting cranes, construction crawling equipment, and mobile boom trucks can be rented. However, you must know how to operate them if you plan to use them alone. If you need to learn more about crane services, rig operators for hire, or the materials and heavy loads commonly handled by this equipment, you should contact a local service in your area.
