Cranes are the workhorses that have increased economic growth and productivity in construction, mining, logging, maritime, production, and service facilities. It is not uncommon while driving in urban areas to see mobile cranes, tower cranes, and maritime cranes all in a short period of time, performing a wide variety of jobs.
