Knuckle Boom Crane
Knuckle boom cranes have been extremely popular in Europe, as they have a lot of narrow streets. There are a lot greater restrictions on trucks in Europe than there are within North America also.

Knuckle boom cranes have taken some time to break into the material handling market in North America, but now, more business owners and more contractors are familiar with the advantages of using knuckle boom cranes and hence, the demand for this specific kind of machinery has increased considerably.

Advantages of Knuckle Boom Technology
A knuckle boom or an articulated crane is similar in looks to a regular crane. The main difference is that like a finger, the boom bends at the knuckle in the middle, hence the name. This particular machine extends a long way but is also capable of folding down to a compact size. These are some of the benefits of using a knuckle boom rather than a telescopic or stiff-boom crane.

As it is lighter to run and more compact, the knuckle boom offers an increased payload and a lower profile. To be able to carry loads farther, a stiff-boom crane needs to be extended higher. A knuckle boom provides horizontal extensions that allow it to reach longer distances at a lower height.

A telescopic crane was needed more before to perform many jobs. These jobs could be done now using an articulated crane because of the long reaches which compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past 10 years. Several models can extend as long as 92' or 28 meters and even higher.

Among the major benefits of the knuckle boom crane is the accurate control the operators have over their load. Loads could be placed with much greater efficiency on higher floors of buildings, on the ground or on higher floors of buildings or on the ground on the roof. Last of all, knuckle boom crane are extremely versatile as they are easy to maneuver around tricky obstacles on a jobsite.
