Features of Straight Arm Truck Crane
China’s cranes are mainly straight arm crane.
The purchase of crane mainly depends on your operation purpose. The characteristics of folding arm are fast, flexible, convenient and low maintenance cost.
But the lifting capacity and operation range are not as good as the straight arm, which has strong overload capacity and wide operation range, but high maintenance and repair cost. When it comes to practicality, it’s better to have straight arms.
1. The straight arm is equipped with steel wire rope, which can be operated at high and low places with large working surface.
2. The boom is longer. The straight arm and folded arm of the same tonnage are 2-3m longer than the curved arm.
3. The moment of lifting is larger than that of straight arm. If it is used for warehouse cargo shipment, the bent arm crane is more suitable, because the flexibility of the folded arm is better than that of the straight arm.
