Crane on an Island

As soon as you leave the city and start going into rural areas like cottage country and private islands, crane and lifting options shrink fast. Access to these places are a big deal, you have enough problems getting your car or yourself in, let alone a delivery truck or a large crane. Each location has its own unique quirks or problems, so what options are out there to help you solve them?

This is one of those areas where mini cranes really shine.

Why are mini cranes a good solution for you?

  • Small and maneuverable to drive around.
  • Lighter than your average crane so they can travel on smaller barges to remote islands.
  • Drive on tank tracks. They can traverse rough, uneven terrain that not even your car or pickup truck can travel on.
  • They have an amazing amount of lifting power for such a small machine.
  • Knuckle crane versions of the mini cranes are highly maneuverable.
