All-terrain cranes are big machines designed for specialized applications, whether that is construction and maintenance in the oil fields, assembling tower cranes, or lifting HVAC units to the top of buildings. There are many things to consider when bringing an all-terrain crane to a jobsite – including road and bridge regulations, safety and training for the operators, and space on the jobsite in more condensed areas, as well as the costs that go beyond the sticker price of the equipment. We asked a panel of industry experts to share their insight on these topics and more.
