Brief description of mobile cranes 

Mobile cranes are a crane mounted on a suitably reinforced truck chassis or on a purpose-built mobile chassis. Mobile cranes, commonly known as cranes, are made up of winches and a swivelling jib mounted on a rotating platform (column). This allows the load to be raised and lowered and moved by changing the boom and rotating the platform. The unit can operate in both transport and crane mode. Depending on the chassis on which the crane is mounted, a distinction is made between truck-mounted cranes, off-road wheeled cranes, crawler cranes and rough terrain cranes.
