What is a Carry Deck Crane?

A carry deck crane is multi-functional crane with a low profile design that operates well in tight spaces. Featuring a 360º rotating boom, these mobile cranes offer a ton of versatility. They are typically outfitted with hydraulic controls, which allow the crane operator to make precise movements. This is especially useful in job sites with narrow spaces and little room for mistakes.

Common Features and Accessories

There are a variety of features and accessories available for different models including:

  • Light packages like work lights or a strobe light
  • Boom extension
  • Four wheel steer
  • All-weather operator cab
  • Noise reduction package

There are a lot of options when using a carry deck crane, making them one of the more common mobile cranes you will find on a construction site.

Why Rent a Carry Deck Crane?

Perhaps the most important differentiator for this type of crane is the crane deck. Now, construction materials can moved around the jobsite without the use of another vehicle. In fact, a true carry crane will have a self-loading carry deck. This means that this crane can load and unload itself without the help of another person. Specific tasks one might use a carry deck crane for on the job include:

  • Moving materials or equipment around the job site
  • Maneuvering loads around tight spaces or overhead obstacles

Carry Deck Crane Considerations

These construction vehicles can provide a wide variety of benefits on a construction site. Here are the main things to remember.

On a smaller construction site, you don’t need a massive tower crane with a lifting capacity of 200+ tons. A smaller crane, like one of our carry decks, is more than enough to get the job done a majority of the time.

Due to their relatively short main boom, carry deck cranes are perfect for indoor jobs or projects without a ton of height. The boom is also much more maneuverable making loads in tight spaces or near obstacles more accessible

It’s important to remember that carry deck cranes require outriggers for stablization. So, you’ll need to factor this in when considering how much space you will need for the crane to operate

While carry deck cranes are a fantastic option for smaller projects, they are certainly a welcome addition to larger construction sites as well. For larger projects, we definitely recommend having one of our larger cranes on site as well.
