Crane Trucks For Sale

Crane trucks for sale are essentially trucks with cranes, and potentially outriggers, that can lift containers and lightweight structures on their own without needing additional transportation. Read More A small truck with a crane can lift about 2,000 pounds or more; a truck mounted telescopic crane can handle loads up to 14,000 pounds, and a crane truck with an articulated boom can lift even heavier loads. Although a heavy duty crane truck will never be able to lift as much as a stationary crane, new and used crane trucks are used quite often to relocate materials and structures around the job site. The largest heavy duty crane truck models available have over 500 horsepower – much more than a standard small crane truck with around 200 horsepower or less. Read Less

Crane Trucks for Lifting, Lowering and Transporting Heavy Materials and Structures

Crane trucks come with a small crane that’s mounted on top of a heavy duty truck. The crane has a raisable boom (arm) that operates on a telescopic jib which expands or retracts as needed. Though they cannot lift as much as larger cranes that are stationary, truck mounted cranes are ideal for utility work and lifting small containers and lightweight structures such as roofs, signs and fire escapes. Crane trucks can also move around the site as needed without requiring additional transportation.

My Little Salesman is proud to list crane trucks for sale that can quickly and safely relocate materials and lightweight structures around the site as needed. Whether you need a crane truck that’s diesel or gas-powered, spring suspension or air ride, tandem axle or tri, we have the right crane truck listing for you!

Choosing the Right Crane Truck for Sale

You need to know how many pounds you are going to have to lift before you can choose the right crane truck for sale. Loads weighing more than 6,000 pounds are going to require hydraulics (which is fine because most crane trucks have a hydraulic system anyway).

Telescopic booms can fold inwards for easy transportation and are meant for loads weighing between 2,000 pounds and 14,000 pounds. Anything heavier is going to require an articulated (“knuckleboom”) crane, which sacrifices height in exchange for a knuckle in the boom that can accommodate heavy loads.

Truck mounted cranes lift loads that are heavy enough to make their rubber tires pop. Outriggers come down and lift the wheels off the ground to keep this from happening. You will have to choose between two types of outriggers:

  • H-Style – These outriggers typically come out from the back of the truck and are better when more stabilization is needed at the rear.
  • A-Frame – These outriggers come out of the side of the truck and are typically meant for a truck chassis with a gross vehicle weight that’s less than 19,500 pounds.

What to Look for When Buying a Used Crane Truck

Check the history of the crane (what it lifted and how many hours it was used for) to get a better feel for the amount of overall wear-and-tear on the vehicle. Corrosion can be a problem, especially if it was operated near the coast (where salt is in the air), so check for rust, paying special attention to the undercarriage. In addition, be sure to look for dents, cracks, leaks and loose connections (if you have an articulated crane truck, pay extra special attention to the pins in the “knuckle”).
