Knuckle Boom Crane
Within Europe, Knuckle boom cranes have been really popular, because the streets are often narrow. There are a lot greater limitations on trucks in Europe than there are in North America also.

Knuckle boom cranes have taken some time to break into the material handling market within North America, but today, more business owners and more contractors know the advantages of knuckle boom cranes and hence, the demand for this equipment has significantly increased.

Benefits of Knuckle Boom Technology
An articulated crane or a knuckle boom 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, thus the name. This equipment extends a long way but is also capable of folding down to a compact size. These are some of the benefits of using a knuckle boom over a stiff-boom or telescopic crane.

As it is more compact and lighter to run, the knuckle boom offers a lower profile and an increased payload. To be able to move 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.

A telescopic crane was required more in the past to perform many tasks. These tasks are capable of being completed now with an articulated crane thanks 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' or 28 meters and even higher.

Among the main benefits of the knuckle boom crane is the accurate control the operators have over their load. Loads can be placed with much greater efficiency on higher floors of buildings, on the ground or on higher floors of buildings or on the ground on the roof. Last of all, knuckle boom crane are easy to maneuver around tricky obstacles on a jobsite and therefore, are extremely versatile.
