It’s designed to help you determine the approximate size of crane needed for your specific project, ensuring you get the right equipment for the job.

What Additional Information Do I Need?

To use our crane calculator effectively, you need to gather some key information about your project.

  • Weight of the Load: Knowing the exact weight of the load you need to lift is essential. Our range of cranes can handle various weights, from 20 tonne cranes for smaller loads to 250 tonne cranes for the heaviest lifts.
  • Lift Height: Determine the height to which the load needs to be lifted. This will help you select a crane with the appropriate reach and capacity.
  • Radius: The radius is the distance from the centre of the crane's rotation to the load. This measurement will influence the size and type of crane you need.
  • Site Conditions: Consider the ground conditions, space constraints, and any obstacles that may affect the crane's operation. This will help you decide whether you need a mobile crane, Franna crane, rough terrain crane or another type of crane.
  • Duration of the Project: Knowing how long you will need the crane can help you plan and budget for your project.

What Size Crane Do I Need?

Determining the size of the crane depends on several factors, including the weight of the load and radius of lift. Our crane calculator considers these variables to provide an estimate of the crane size required for your project.

For example:

  • 20 Tonne Cranes: Ideal for smaller projects or loads, such as residential construction or small-scale industrial tasks.
  • 100 Tonne Cranes: Suitable for medium-sized projects that need to lift heavier loads to moderate heights.
  • 220 Tonne Cranes: Perfect for large construction sites or industrial projects requiring heavy lifting.
  • 250 Tonne Cranes: Best for the most demanding projects, where the heaviest loads need to be lifted to significant heights.

What Type of Crane Do I Need?

Selecting the right type of crane is as important as choosing the right size. Whether you’re interested in our 20-tonne cranes, 100 tonne cranes, 220 tonne cranes, or 250 tonne cranes, each crane is designed for a variety of applications and site conditions. Here's a quick guide to which crane type is best for different lifting needs, helping you match the right crane to your project's requirements.

  • Mobile Cranes: These cranes are ideal for sites with limited space and can quickly relocate between different sites along public roads.
  • Franna Cranes: Known for their versatility and mobility, Franna cranes are ideal for lifting and transporting loads over short distances and tight spaces.
  • All-Terrain Cranes: As the name suggests, these cranes can operate on various terrains, making them ideal for projects with challenging ground conditions.
  • Truck-Mounted Cranes: These cranes are suitable for projects that require frequent movement between sites.

Choosing the right crane for your project is crucial to ensure efficiency, safety, and cost-effectiveness. Whether you need a crane for a construction site, industrial project, or any other heavy lifting requirement, the right size and type of crane can make all the difference.
