What crawler cranes are used for
Crawler cranes are designed to cope with a much higher capacity than mobile cranes, ranging from 30 ton up to 600/800 ton. These have a strong lattice boom which enables it to lift a larger weight and is good for site work which will take a lengthy time.
As self-propelled cranes on tracks, they can move around a site and perform jobs without much set-up. The crawler tracks also provide stability so the crane can be used without outriggers, but some models do include them.
Because of their bulky weight and size, it can be difficult and expensive to transport crawler cranes from site to site, so mobile cranes are best suited if you move around a lot.
