Jib cranes are characterized by their unique structure, reliability, efficiency, energy-saving, time-saving, and flexibility. They have emerged as popular small and medium-sized lifting equipment in recent years and are now widely used in modern production. But how does one go about purchasing a jib crane?
Model Selection of Jib Cranes
When buying a jib crane, it’s essential to consider its mobility, stability, and low ground pressure requirements. You need to decide whether a truss arm (mechanical drive) or a box-type telescopic arm (hydraulic drive) crane is more appropriate, and whether a specialized crane is needed. These are critical considerations.
Type Selection of Jib Cranes
Your actual needs should guide the purchase, focusing on the lifting capacity and height. The larger the maximum lifting capacity of a crane, the more challenging it is to fully utilize its capabilities in lifting projects, leading to lower utilization rates. Therefore, it’s advisable to buy a model that meets your technical requirements without being excessively large.
Economic Performance Selection for Jib Cranes
The principle for purchasing a self-propelled crane is to minimize the cost per unit of material or component during transportation, lifting, and loading/unloading. This can be calculated by determining the lifting capacity and costs per shift, then choosing the most cost-effective option. Additionally, consider products that consume less energy and offer multiple functions to reduce manual labor intensity.
