About Crane and Self Erecting Crane

Self-erecting tower crane (self-assembling crane) is a kind of construction machinery which belongs to handling equipment. It's main advantage ist the simplicity of transport and installation what can be done without any other auxiliary machine.A typical self-erecting crane consists of a mast, a luffing or a horizontal jib, a platform, and a counterweight.

They're remote controlled from the ground.Self-erecting cranes are powered with an electric motor. They either have their own generator or are supplied from the electricity grid. It makes them independent and eko-friendly because they're quiet and don't exhaust fuel gas. Both the transport and the installation of a self-erecting crane aren't time consuming (which is not the case for most of the heavy equipment).

The whole crane can be towed on a flat bed trailer or on its own wheels as its measures are in compliance with road transport requirements. The crane travels to the working site folded in 3-4 sections. Then it's hydraulically erected which takes up to half an hour. The necessary calibration and testing require about two hours. Thanks to a telescopic tower the height of the crane can be easily changed.
