Due to high acquisition costs crawler cranes are often rented by construction companies in order to use them,for example, on short-term building construction projects. Crawler cranes can be used in a very flexible manner on building sites as the machine can be moved while under load and also at difficult ground conditions. Additional, heavy loads can be lifted and placed with various lattice jib configurations.
Thanks to low transport dimensions and transport weight the costs are kept to a minimum for transporting the crawler cranes. All parts, except the upper carriage, are designed in such a way that they can transport a standard container. The crawler cranes also have a sophisticated self-assembly system and can therefore be assembled without the help of other cranes. The Starlifter under carriage makes it possible to automatically lift and support the upper carriage and also facilitates the simple self-loading onto a low-loader.
