How crawler cranes work
The crawler crane has many parts including the tracks and the propulsion system. These tend to be the most important parts of the machine. The engine sits atop the tracks, which has a cab and control area. The boom features cables, which help to lift whatever object you might need to pick up. Because of the way the cranes are designed, they tend to have a lot of power and they can lift very heavy weights without worry about toppling.
You will find that crawler cranes of various sizes tend to have the same parts, as well as very similar controls.
About crawler cranes
A crawler crane is a vehicle that sits on a track and has a crane attached to it. One of the biggest benefits of this piece of equipment is that it will allow the use of a crane even on soft ground. The tracks will help to disperse the weight of the vehicle, so it does not sink. In addition, the crawler crane tends to have more stability thanks to the steel tracks.
