Crane transport

No hurdle is too high for us

Crane lorries are multifunctional. They transport freight and can load and unload themselves without the help of a forklift and regardless of where they are. Lorries with loading cranes play an important role in our logistics and are in action for Volken Group day in, day out. They transport and pick up construction materials and smaller construction machines as well as scaffolds, diesel fuel tanks and much more. The loading cranes are fitted to the middle or rear end of the lorry and have a reach of up to 24 metres, allowing them to provide strong and practical services at even the most inaccessible locations.

Even 24 metres are not beyond our reach

A valuable aid during assembly

Construction site logistics are one thing, assembly is another. Crane lorries are also useful for timber, metal and steel construction. The general rule is that the further the load is from the crane, the less it will be able to carry. If the crane only has to cover a small distance, it can lift over 5 tonnes; however, if it has to move its maximum distance, it can lift approximately 1 tonne.

Pinpoint precision tonne for tonne

It goes without saying that our lorry-mounted crane operators are well-trained and highly experienced. However, their instinctive feel is just as important. That is what allows them to position objects weighing tonnes with pinpoint precision, even with limited space. And what's more, they do so in a calm and controlled manner.

They can handle anything

Not all cargo is the same. Our crane lorries are equipped accordingly. Solid freight is secured with chains, while suitable grabbers are used to secure loose freight such as wood or soil.

Overloading is automatically prevented

Our lorries with loading cranes are operated via radio control. For safety reasons, every model has overload protection. If the crane is approaching its maximum load, a warning signal will sound. If the load is increased further, the overload device will prevent the crane from moving out again and prevent the vehicle from overturning.
