What is the difference between a hydraulic truck crane and a conventional truck crane?

The most obvious difference between hydraulic truck cranes and conventional truck cranes are how they are powered. On a hydraulic truck crane, the lifting mechanisms such as the boom are powered by an internal hydraulics system. Conventional truck cranes power their lifting mechanisms with diesel fuel or gasoline. Conventional truck cranes can lift quicker but hydraulic truck cranes may be easier to control.

What is the difference between a conventional truck crane and a boom truck?

The primary differences between a boom truck and a conventional truck crane are:

  1. Lifting mechanism: A boom truck typically has an extendable arm or boom that can be moved into various positions to lift and move heavy loads using a hydraulic crane mounted on a truck chassis. In contrast, a conventional truck crane has a fixed telescoping boom that extends vertically to lift loads.

  2. Mobility and flexibility: Boom trucks are designed to be highly maneuverable and flexible, allowing them to reach different areas on job sites easily. They are also quicker and easier to set up than traditional cranes. Conventional truck cranes, on the other hand, are larger and more powerful than boom trucks, making them better suited for heavy-duty lifting applications.

  3. Load capacity: While both types of equipment have their unique advantages, conventional truck cranes generally have greater load capacities than boom trucks.
