Why doesn't a crane with a capacity of 30 tons always move the said 30 tons?

Cranes are commonly named for their capacity, under minimum radius and boom conditions. However, in practice most services are performed at a certain distance and height, which reduces the capacity of the machine. Technically, the combination between these 3 variables is represented through a table or a diagram, called a load diagram. In addition, cranes are limited to 75% of their capacity for safety reasons, in compliance with current European standards.

Does Gruest rent out its cranes without an operator?

Such is not possible. Operating a crane requires very specific technical and safety knowledge. In such a way that Gruest periodically dedicates training actions to its operators.

Can a crane travel on public roads?

What elements do I need to provide to request a crane service and consequently rent the most suitable crane?
