Knuckle Boom Crane
Knuckle boom cranes have been very popular in Europe, since they have lots of narrow roads. There are much greater restrictions on trucks within Europe than there are in North America too.

Knuckle boom cranes have taken some time to break into the material handling market in North America, but now, more contractors and more business owners are familiar with the benefits of knuckle boom cranes and thus, the demand for this particular kind of equipment 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 distinction is that like a finger, the boom bends at the knuckle in the middle, thus the name. This machinery extends a long way but is can also fold down to a compact size. These are some of the benefits of using a knuckle boom rather than a stiff-boom or telescopic crane.

Since it is lighter to run and more compact, the knuckle boom offers a lower profile and an increased payload. In order to transport loads farther, a stiff-boom crane has to be 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 tasks that used to require a telescopic crane. These tasks are capable of being completed now with an articulated crane thanks to the long reaches which compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past 10 years. Several models can extend as far as 92 feet or 28 meters and even higher.

One of the major benefits of the knuckle boom crane is the accurate control the operators have over their load. 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 because they are easy to maneuver around difficult obstacles on a jobsite.
