Boom Trucks for Rent in Calgary

Boom Trucks, Crane Rental | Sep 20 / 18

Boom trucks are the perfect addition to most jobsites, as they can easily be used for a wide variety of different applications. At Stampede Cranes, we understand how important it is for you to have the right equipment for your jobsite. That is why we offer a wide range of boom trucks for rent in Calgary.

What Are Boom Trucks?

Similar to mobile cranes, boom trucks are equipped with a winch that can be used to vertically lift workers or loads of various sizes and weights, depending on the application; however, unlike some types of cranes in Calgary, boom trucks offer a higher level of maneuverability, as they can be moved around a jobsite with ease. Boom trucks are most commonly identified by their bucket-like apparatus that sits at the end of extendable arms and can be used to allow employees to work up high.

What Are Boom Trucks Used For?

The most common type of boom truck in Calgary is often referred to as a picker truck because it can be used to lift workers to the top of a phone or electrical pole, or onto a high roofline. This type of boom truck can lift anywhere between 350-1500 lbs and may extend the bucket up to 47m in the air. Larger construction boom trucks, or heavy equipment boom trucks, can use the crane at the rear of the truck to lift heavy items onto the truck bed. While the cranes on the back of boom trucks tend to be short and compact, they have a lifting capacity of 10-50 tonnes.
