A carry deck crane hoists, transports, loads, and unloads heavy materials on industrial and construction worksites. This machine’s crane and boom are fixed to a 360-degree turntable at its base. Smaller models lift between 2.5 and 9 tons, while larger models can support anywhere from 10 to 30 tons. This compact, maneuverable vehicle is the most portable type of crane, making it a good choice if you need to navigate congested areas.
To keep the job site safe with such maneuverable, heavy equipment, OSHA requires that all operators are trained and licensed to operate a carry deck crane. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.

The cost to rent a carry deck crane depends on various factors including lifting capacity, project location, and project duration. Cranes with heavier lifting capacities typically require that you carry a certificate of insurance before renting. You can call or request a quote online.
Carry deck cranes can lift and hoist heavy materials, transporting them from one area to another. Their agility makes them useful for construction, industrial, or maintenance jobs, where they can take loads and relocate them to elevated work zones. Their maneuverability allows them to access areas bulkier, less versatile cranes may not be able to reach.
Lifting and transporting materials are two different tasks, with different weight capacities. The capacity on outriggers—beamed legs that extend outward to provide added stability when a crane is stationary—will be higher than the capacity when the crane is moving. Your crane’s capacity on outriggers may be one-quarter more to nearly twice as much as its pick and carry cranes capacity. To know for sure, you should check your rental’s load chart.
A carry deck crane is just one of several cranes available through BigRentz. The compact size of this four-wheel vehicle makes it great for loading and unloading materials on job sites with compact spaces. Larger cranes such as crawler cranes, rough-terrain cranes, and truck-mounted cranes may be more suitable for moving heavier loads. Fixed cranes such as overhead cranes (bridge cranes) and hammerhead cranes are designed to remain in place while using their jib to transfer materials.
