Knuckle Boom Crane
In Europe, Knuckle boom cranes have been extremely popular, because the roads are often narrow. There are much greater restrictions on trucks in Europe than there are within North America as well.

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

Benefits of Knuckle Boom Technology
A knuckle boom or an articulated crane is similar in looks to a typical crane. The main difference is that like a finger, the boom bends at the knuckle in the middle, hence the name. This equipment extends a long way but is also capable of folding down to a compact size. These are a few of the benefits of using a knuckle boom rather than a stiff-boom or telescopic crane.

To be able to move loads farther, a stiff-boom crane requires being extended higher. A knuckle boom provides horizontal extensions that enable it to reach longer distances at a lower height.

In the past, there were a lot of jobs which used to need a telescopic crane. These tasks are capable of being completed now utilizing an articulated crane thanks to the long reaches which compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past ten years. Some models could extend as far as 92 feet or 28 meters and even higher.

Among the main benefits of the knuckle boom crane is the accurate control the operators have over their cargo. Loads could be positioned with much greater efficiency on the roof, on higher floors of buildings or on the ground. Last of all, knuckle boom crane are very versatile as they are easy to maneuver around difficult obstacles on a jobsite.
