Choosing the Right Crane for the Job
Put plainly, businesses rent cranes to move and lift up to hundreds of tons of materials. However, no two projects are exactly quite the same. Because of this, different cranes suit different purposes. To get the job done right, the appropriate piece of equipment must be chosen for the task at hand. This decision hinges on proprietary industry knowledge and experience and having served our customers since 1947, Thackray Crane Rental, Inc. prides itself as the premier provider of crane rentals in the tri-state area.
Over the past several decades, we have developed a strong reputation for reliable crane rental services in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. With our construction support services—such as equipment rentals, trucking and transportation, warehouse and storage, and project logistics customers regularly complete their projects both safely and efficiently.
Do you need a crane for your next project? Depending on the nature of the job, we could outfit you with one or more of the following cranes, among others.
These cranes have the ability to move under their own power, allowing them to transport heavy loads around construction sites. This capability, combined with lift capacities that range from 50 to 440 tons, makes them suitable for many different projects.
Boom trucks offer even more mobility at the cost of lower lift capacity (about 8-28 tons). Their multifunctional truck beds allow you to easily transport materials and supplies between sites. To add to their versatility, they can even come with an attached man basket, allowing personnel to install and remove signs, maintain cell phone towers, or perform a variety of other essential functions in hard-to-reach places.
With lift capacities up to 500 tons and the ability to traverse rough surfaces, all-terrain cranes give contractors a powerful and highly maneuverable crane rental option. These heavy-duty machines include features like retractable and extendable counterweight positions, hydraulically-operated winches, and a maximum hook height of 425 feet.
These cranes serve as just a few examples of diverse selection of equipment. For more information about our crane rentals, browse our website here.
