How is a crane constructed?

Loader cranes are used  for loading and unloading trucks and for assembly work. The crane is mounted either behind the cab or at the rear of the vehicle and is hydraulically driven by the engine of the vehicle via an oil pump
. The crane consists of a base that is directly mounted on the truck frame. On the base frame is the crane column, which is connected to the main boom, either directly or via a linkage system. Another linkage system connects the main boom with the knuckle boom. A crane can be equipped with a maximum of nine hydraulic booms. The crane’s outreach may be further expanded by means of a fly jib. Additional equipment (cable winch, rotator, grapple, pallet fork) makes loader cranes even more widely applicable. As opposed to the mobile crane the power is defined through the lifting moment
