Which Crane is Best for Tilt-Up Concrete?

Construction | Apr 7 / 22

With faster build times and affordable structure costs, tilt-up concrete is a popular method for a variety of construction projects throughout the world. While tilt-up construction may seem simple in theory, it requires a variety of equipment to ensure that the job is done right. As most tilt-up construction projects need a crane to handle concrete panels, it is important to ensure that you are choosing the correct unit for the job. As leading providers of quality mobile crane rentals for all types of construction projects, the team at Stampede Crane & Rigging knows how difficult it can be to select a suitable crane for your needs. That is why we have compiled some information to help you determine which crane is best for tilt-up concrete and other elements of your project.

Learn about some important factors that affect mobile crane performance.

3 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Crane for Tilt-Up Concrete

While many different types of mobile cranes can be used for tilt-up concrete projects, there are several factors to consider before making a final decision. To ensure optimal performance and safety for your project, consider the following elements:

1. The Size of the Panels/Walls

The size and weight of the concrete panels will significantly impact which mobile cranes are suitable for your project. You should always select a unit that provides more lift capacity than you need while ensuring that it can lift the panel to the required height. This will ensure optimal performance and safety, saving you time and money by keeping your project on schedule.

2. The Project Site

There are various elements of your project site to consider before choosing a mobile crane. For example, if the project is going to take place on rough, slippery, or unstable ground, you will need to choose a rough-terrain crane that can safely navigate and operate on these surfaces.

3. Your Timeline/Deadlines

Some mobile crane models are in higher demand than others. This demand can drastically affect the price and lead times for a rental, so it is important to take note of this when inquiring about a unit. If you are working with strict deadlines, be sure to choose a mobile crane provider that can work with you to deliver a solution that works for your project while adhering to your timeline.
