Pecco Self Erect Cranes

The hydraulic truck crane is a specific mobile crane which uses hydraulic power to lift and transport thousands of pounds. Hydraulics uses forces being transmitted through oil pushing in opposite directions on the pistons of the boom in order to lift thousands of pounds. Hydraulic truck cranes are very essential in constructing major projects such as airports, bridges, buildings and roadways. A crane could accomplish in minutes jobs which will normally take hundreds of men and lots of hours to complete.

The vast machinery are usually utilized in the building of cities, houses, whole nations and individual buildings throughout the ages. Even Egypt's Great Pyramids were likely built with the help of basic cranes to allow the heaviest materials in one of the most remarkable construction projects of all time.

The first cranes were established in 3000 B.C. Egypt in the reign of King Ramses. This lifting device was initially used to collect water. The first official "cranes" appeared in Ancient Greece. These devices were used to create a whole nation in the 5th century B.C.

Originally, cranes were first made out of wood. It wasn't until the designers constructing dockyards decided they needed something stronger and bigger did these machinery evolve. Hick & Rothwell designed the very first cast iron cranes in Bolton, England, during the year 1834. This machinery was capable of lifting up to 2 tons. That very same year, the addition of wire rope was added to the crane by an Official of the German Superior Board, Herr Albert Sr. The wire rope made the crane stronger and more durable. This addition allowed cranes to have a bigger capacity for lifting heavy weights.

The wire ropes were weaved together forming a more powerful rope with even more strength. The newly formed wire also added more flexibility. Germany started to build cast iron cranes 4 years later. The very first cast iron crane built by Germany was made within Neuburg.
