How Is a Boom Truck Different Than a Crane?

A boom truck is a versatile piece of equipment. It’s driveable like a regular truck and has a boom attached to its bed. The boom can be used to lift materials and workers to heights that would be otherwise inaccessible, and the bed of the truck can be used to transport heavy materials. Proper bucket attachments can also be used to safely lift workers so that they can perform tasks such as washing windows, picking fruit and working on power lines.

Unlike boom trucks, cranes use a counterweight system of pulleys, chains, cables and concrete blocks to lift extremely heavy loads with enhanced stability. There are many different types of cranes, including telescopic, mobile, truck-mounted and rough terrain. While boom trucks can be used to lift workers, cranes are designed only for the safe lifting of heavy materials.

What Are the Benefits of a Boom Truck?

A boom truck rental can offer many benefits to your CT or MA business, including:

  • Maneuverability: Because boom trucks can be driven like regular trucks, they can be used to quickly and easily transport materials and workers to, from and around job sites.
  • Versatility: Boom trucks perform many functions. The bed can be used to transport items like small steel loads, roofing materials and construction equipment, while the boom can safely get those materials to areas such as the tops of buildings, hillsides and other spots that are typically inaccessible. And with the right bucket or platform attachments, workers can be safely lifted as well.
  • Time and cost savings: Boom trucks are faster and easier to set up and use than traditional cranes, which will save you labor, time and money on your project.
