What Is A City Crane?

City cranes are from a class of crane developed in the 90’s for the tight, urban confines of Japanese cities. Since their introduction, they have become the favourite for jobs that want a high lift crane that can navigate tight areas and out perform larger machines.

City cranes where a revelation due to their single cabin design, slewing capabilities (turning left/right in addition to up/down) and being mounted on a shorter truck chassi. This created a class of crane that can be driven to site, manoeuvre alleyways and constricted spaces, and begin operations all from the same driver seat. Quickly embraced by the construction and apartment furniture industries, these cranes can now be found in most cities across Australia, and the world.


Benefits of City Cranes:

The strength of the city crane is in its ability to balance manoeuvrability with functionality. There are a variety of features that differentiate modern city cranes from other cranes in our fleet.

  • Short wheelbase. The chassis mounting for a city crane is typically shorter than even a franna crane, and much shorter than a full-sized slewing crane. This allows better access to tight spaces.
  • Single cabin operation. When set for transport, the boom arm and the slewing cabin both face frontal. This allows the operator to drive and conduct lifting operations from the same seat.
  • All wheel turning. Depending on specification, some city cranes feature all-wheel or independent axis turning, allowing for unbeatable turning circles, or even diagonal crab walking. This gives city cranes the edge when relocating on site.
