    When it comes to tree work, having the right equipment can make all the difference. Among the various types of cranes available for this purpose, the knuckle boom crane stands out as a versatile and efficient choice. Let’s explore the numerous benefits of using a knuckle boom crane for tree work, emergency tree removal, storm damage tree removal, general tree removal, and other related tasks. Our Hiab X-Hipro 638 crane, is a reliable option available for hire across New South Wales and interstate.

    Knuckle boom cranes have revolutionized loading and unloading across a wide range of industries. Also known as a loader crane, an articulating crane, or a picker crane, the knuckle boom crane has revolutionized engineering. Unlike a straight boom crane, a knuckleboom crane has 1 knuckle above pivot point, 1 main boom and a Jib on the end of the main boom. This gives the operator more flexibility and the ability to reach down and under, whilst also having the ability to have attachments, such as grapples, clam shell buckets etc which operate through the cranes hydraulic system

    If you look at your index finger, bend it at the knuckles. A knuckle boom crane works similarly. Because it has these two knuckles, the crane can be used in many different ways as opposed to a straight boom crane. With these knuckles, the crane can be folded into a smaller size, but can also extend to reach loads at a distance. The straight/stick boom cranes are unable to fold and extend like this.
