What is a Knuckle Boom Crane?
You might know them as a drywall crane, picker crane, loader crane, or articulating crane. Unlike a traditional boom crane, a knuckle boom is compact and features two booms. They articulate, much like fingers. This gives the operator precise control of the lode. For instance, material can be lifted and delivered through tight spaces such as windows or doorways at a construction site. They offer a long list of benefits over conventional boom cranes, which is outlined below.
Benefits of a Knuckle Boom Crane
Knuckle boom cranes are more compact than conventional (stick) boom trucks. This provides much more flexibility for the user, and allows for increased payload.

- Able to maneuver in tight spaces
- Very compact
- Relatively easy to transport
