What is a Rough Terrain Crane?

As the name implies, a rough-terrain crane is a type of mobile crane meant to handle various difficult terrains that you might encounter on a construction site. These cranes feature a lifted deck and wide, oversized tires to help navigate over rubble, mud, and any other hard-to-traverse surfaces. They are also useful indoors thanks to their compact size and maneuverability.

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
  • Four wheel drive
  • All-weather operator cab
  • Noise reduction package

These are just a few of the features and add-ons you can get with a rough-terrain crane. There is certainly an accessory for almost every application imaginable.

Why Rent a Rough Terrain Crane?

A job site can be pretty unpredictable. You never know when bad weather conditions may come through and completely change the work area. Having a rough terrain crane on site can be vital in ensuring the construction project gets completed on time.

Specific tasks one might use a rough terrain crane for on the job include:

  • Moving heavy equipment or machinery around a project site with difficult terrain
  • Lifting or moving loads indoors in narrow or confined spaces

Rough Terrain Crane Considerations

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

For those job sites with difficult to traverse terrain or unpredictable weather, a rough terrain crane is an absolute necessity. It’s worth noting that these cranes cannot be driven on freeways.

There are a wide variety of rough terrain cranes available for different applications. In our fleet alone, we have maximum lifting capacities ranging from 25 to 110 tons with max tip heights from 95 feet to 250 feet. 

These cranes are useful both indoors and outdoors. The cranes on the smaller end of the spectrum can operate in tight spaces while the larger options are useful for big projects. Keep in mind that these cranes require outriggers when considering space needed for the lift.
