In Europe, Knuckle boom cranes have been very popular, since the streets are usually narrow. There are a lot greater limitations on trucks within Europe than there are within North America as well.

A telescopic crane was required more before to perform lots of tasks. These tasks are capable of being completed now using an articulated crane thanks to the long reaches that compete with telescopic cranes. The reach of knuckle booms has increased in the past ten years. Some models could extend as long as 92 feet or 28 meters and even higher.

The accurate control the operators have over their load is amongst the key benefits of the knuckle boom crane. Because the loads can be positioned precisely where they are needed, on the roof, on higher floors of buildings or on the ground, much greater efficiency is attained. Lastly, knuckle boom crane are extremely versatile because they are easy to maneuver around difficult obstacles on a jobsite.
