Benefits of Picker Trucks

Mobile Cranes | May 6 / 22

When it comes to construction, agriculture, and other demanding applications, the equipment you use will have a direct impact on site safety and productivity. That is why it is always worth taking the time to consider your specific site needs before selecting equipment rentals. If you are looking for a versatile mobile crane rental for your project, a picker truck may be the perfect solution. Picker trucks are unique units that combine the mobility of a truck with the utility of a stiff boom crane. To help you determine if these units are right for your project, the team at Stampede Crane & Rigging has compiled a list of the primary benefits of picker trucks and how they can optimize productivity for sites with limited space.

3 Reasons to Use a Picker Truck for Your Project

Picker trucks offer the following benefits for a variety of projects and applications:

1. Exceptional Mobility and Site Accessibility

While all mobile cranes are designed with mobility in mind, some units are too large to safely navigate smaller sites. This is especially true if the site has numerous obstacles or overhead obstructions. Picker trucks offer the mobility of a standard truck while allowing for the use of a powerful stiff boom crane, allowing you to easily reposition the unit as needed for lifting and placing materials. Each picker truck can also be driven on the road, ensuring easy transportation to and from your site.

2. Easier Material Transportation

With lift capacities up to 50 tons and boom lengths up to 155 ft, picker trucks give you the power and reach you need to handle a variety of difficult materials. Some units are also designed to hold materials on the bed of the truck, allowing operators to lift materials quickly and safely from one area of the project site, place them on the truck, and transport them to another area.

3. Reduced Prep Time

One of the biggest advantages of picker trucks is that they arrive at your project site in work-ready condition. These units require no setup time and can immediately get to work, allowing you to spend more time lifting and placing materials. Once the job is done, picker trucks can simply be driven off the project site, eliminating the takedown time associated with conventional cranes.
