When it comes to your next project, it’s important to consider which crane will be best suited for your needs. Not all cranes are built alike. Read on to learn about the differences between Franna Cranes and All Terrain Cranes, and when they come recommended.  

Franna Cranes for Hire

Franna cranes dominate the Australian market and have done so since the 1980s. Unlike previous cranes, it had increased visibility alongside strong lifting capacity. As time went on, the franna crane model was improved upon.  

Their Use

Franna cranes are commonly used to pick up and carry heavy loads across a worksite, with a lifting capacity between 10 to 25 tonnes. They can be used in a variety of settings, including workshops, mines, plant sites and construction sites. They can even be driven on public roads, which is ideal for transporting supplies and equipment between job sites.  

Their Benefits

Franna cranes are highly versatile. They can be used in a variety of settings, for many purposes, which is where their popularity stems from. As you transport your needed equipment and supplies yourself, you do not have to wait for external machinery to carry out the task for you. In this way, franna cranes provide the opportunity to heavily reduce labour and waiting costs. You also don’t have to waste time breaking down equipment, packing it and then unpacking it at the next site.  

All Terrain Cranes

Not all job sites are built alike, which is where all-terrain cranes come into play. They are a combination of a rough terrain crane and a standard truck crane, built with the idea of manoeuvrability and mobility in mind.  

Their Use

All-terrain cranes are versatile in their use. Their average lifting capacity is over 1000 tons, meaning they can be used for a wide variety of lifting, from domestic shipping containers to materials on building construction sites. They are built to function well in the Australian landscape. They are also able to operate in any climate, making them ideal for the Australian heat. They also have a characteristic telescopic boom which is able to be retracted to ensure safe travel on Australian roads. They are also able to travel on all roads: rural, difficult, rough and city alike.

All-terrain cranes have several benefits, one of which being the versatility. They require minimal setup and are able to be used in a variety of sites. Confined construction sites, extreme weather conditions, off-road use: the all-terrain crane can handle it all.
