Knuckle boom cranes

Knuckle boom cranes – also known as Kbooms, loader cranes, articulating cranes, or picker cranes – have revolutionised loading and unloading across a wide range of industries, thanks to innovative engineering.

Unlike a straight boom crane, a knuckle boom crane has a knuckle above the pivot point, one main boom and a jib on the end of the main boom. It works in a similar fashion to a human index finger. With its two knuckles the crane can be folded into a smaller size, but can also extend to reach loads at a distance, versatility denied to straight boom cranes. This gives the operator the ability to reach down and under, while also allowing attachments, such as grapples and clam-shell buckets which operate via the crane’s hydraulic system, to be manoeuvred and operated in positions and situations a straight boom crane simply can’t.

The right gear

Canopy Lift’s 638 Hiab x Hipro crane is compact, has a big reach, and is available for hire across Australia.

Built for all conditions, the 638 can handle rough terrain and make light work of even the most restricted setup areas. The truck footprint once set up is 8.1m long and 7m wide and can be shortened for tight access. The maximum crane height with manual extension is 29m, and horizontal reach is 26m with manual extension. The crane can lift a ton at those limits.
