Crawler Cranes Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of new or used crawler cranes. These cranes include a machine deck mounted on tracks (called crawlers) with a boom and hoist attached. Crawler cranes carry heavy loads of up to several thousand tons around a work site. The tracks enable the crane to easily move around a site while the deck and attachments rotate up to 360 degrees. Buyers can purchase cranes directly from manufacturers or from wholesalers and dealers. Common buyers of crawler cranes include operators in the construction and mining markets. This report excludes other types of lifting equipment and accessories, such as tower cranes.
