Buying the Right Crane Atlantic & Southern Equipment, LLC
A crane is a critical piece of construction equipment on your job site.
Factors to Consider
When buying a crane, you’ll want to consider several factors that will impact what model may or may not be right for you. Consider the following:
- How much weight do you need to lift with your crane? Think about your current and your future lifting needs.
- Know the lift height. Figure out how high your loads can be raised. Keep in mind that a taller project will require a longer reach.
- How much driving will your crane need to do? If your equipment will need to travel all-around your job site, you’ll need a model that is mobile or on rails.
- Evaluate the terrain. What kind of ground will you be operating on? You may need to invest in an all-terrain model.
- Think about finances. Of course, a crane is a big investment. You want to make sure you can afford the model that you buy. Build a budget with maintenance and other fees built into it.
