Knuckle Boom Crane
Knuckle boom cranes have been really popular in Europe, as they have a lot of narrow streets. There are a lot greater limitations on trucks in Europe than there are within North America also.

Knuckle boom cranes have taken some time to break into the material handling market within North America, but these days, more business owners and more contractors are familiar with the benefits of knuckle boom cranes and hence, the demand for this machinery has significantly increased.

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

As it is lighter to run and more compact, the knuckle boom provides an increased payload and a lower profile. In order to transport loads farther, a stiff-boom crane needs to be extended higher. A knuckle boom offers horizontal extensions that enable it to reach longer distances at a lower height.

Before, there were many tasks that used to need a telescopic crane. These jobs are capable of being completed now with an articulated crane due to the long reaches that compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past ten years. Several models can extend as long as 92 feet or 28 meters and even higher.

The accurate control the operators have over their load is one of the vital advantages of the knuckle boom crane. As the loads can be positioned exactly where they are required, on higher floors of buildings, on the ground or on higher floors of buildings or on the ground on the roof, much greater efficiency is attained. Lastly, knuckle boom crane are easy to maneuver around tricky obstacles on a jobsite and thus, are really versatile.
