Pecco Self Erect Cranes

Hydraulic truck cranes are a particular type of mobile crane. These cranes make use of hydraulics and can lift thousands of pounds. Hydraulics utilizes forces being transmitted through oil pushing on the boom's pistons in opposite directions in order to lift thousands of pounds. Hydraulic truck cranes are essential in constructing major projects like airports, bridges, streets and buildings. A crane can accomplish in minutes jobs that will normally take hundreds of men and lots of hours to accomplish.

The great machinery are usually used in the building of cities, homes, entire nations and individual buildings throughout the ages. Even the Great Pyramids in Egypt were probably built using basic cranes to enable the heaviest supplies in one of the most amazing construction projects of all time.

The first cranes were established during 3000 B.C. Egypt during the reign of King Ramses. This lifting mechanism was originally utilized to collect water. The first official "cranes" appeared in Ancient Greece. These mechanism were utilized to build a whole nation throughout the 5th century B.C.

Initially, cranes were first made out of wood. It wasn't until the designers building dockyards decided they needed something stronger and bigger did these equipments evolve. Hick & Rothwell designed the first cast iron cranes within Bolton, England, during 1834. This machinery was capable of lifting as much as 2 tons. That 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 more durable and stronger. This addition allowed cranes to have a larger 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. 4 years later, Germany started to make cast iron cranes. The very first cast iron crane built by Germany was built within Neuburg.
