Wolff Cranes

The Evolution into Hydraulics
The beginning of World War II forced society to become more creative in general. Even though the design and development of cranes has evolved greatly, during this particular time these equipments progressed significantly. These industrial machines changed the face of the construction industry.

During the year 1946, the very first hydraulic crane was built by F. Taylor & Sons. Their unit was only used by the company and can not luff or slew. When it joined with Coles in 1959, this model opened up the doors for a 42 and 50 Series. A Morris W.D. chassis is what the mobile hydraulic crane was first placed on.

The hydraulic crane by Taylor & Sons operated on a boom powered by a hydraulic pump and cylinders that were lifted and lowered by a hydraulic pump. When the company was unable to use army vehicles as chassis for the machinery, they started production for designing their own mobile hydraulic cranes.

The 1950s offered cranes which were heralded as incredible equipments which were capable of rebuilding what bombs dropped during the war had ruined. The cranes were responsible for helping put together nations, cities and individual homes. Hydraulic systems became designed more and more complex. The pumps and gear systems can be powered while the trucks remained immobile. Businesses such as Hydrauliska Instustri AB made the first truck loader crane appearance offered on the market.

The A2 crane was introduced during 1952. This unit was mounted directly to the rear of a Chevy truck. It was complete with a hooked winch and hydraulic lifting cylinders. This loader crane started a huge trend in the business. A company located in Bremen, known as Atlas Weyhausen began manufacturing similar versions of this equipment.

Cranes soon after the war were becoming more advanced. Various manufacturers and companies making the winches developed accurate telescopic booms, and the hydraulic pumps were improved and utilizing different materials so as to change the way the crane was developed.
