Crawler cranes utilize a design in which a crane mechanism is attached to a rugged set of tracks. This system allows the crawler crane to safely and efficiently perform on extremely challenging surfaces such as muddy soft ground. Support and stability are provided completely by tracks instead of bulky outriggers which allows crawler cranes to move around the jobsite under load.
Crawler Cranes are powered by a single engine system with two cable operated drums. Known for handling the heaviest loads with ease, the lifting capacity of Modern Crane Service, Inc. crawler cranes exceed 100 tons depending on the model and configuration. Long-term projects that will predictably expose the crane to adverse weather conditions and poor ground conditions are ideal for the use of a crawler crane.
