The main advantage:
All terrain cranes can be used on all kind of terrains and under any weather conditions. The all terrain cranes can easily move through sand, gravel and can travel smoothly on asphalt roads and highways. This is a significant benefit provided by the all terrain cranes because construction sites are actually remote sites with no appropriate roads nearby. Generally, the all terrain crane has a four wheel drive system and is powered by one or two engines. An all terrain crane is equipped with a telescopic boom that can be hydraulically extended to reach heights from 50-100 meters in the sky, and can lift loads of 100-1000 tons. The all around flexibility of the all terrain crane makes it an ideal machine for completing numerous lifting tasks in no time. Once the job is completed, the all terrain crane can easily move from one construction site to another without difficulties.
The main disadvantage:
The boom of all terrain crane is so heavy that can make the boom deflect when the crane is hoisting heavy materials and is scoped out. The more boom you scope out the more your chart potentially decreases.
They can be used for all types of projects such as installing oil and gas pipelines, erecting wind turbines, lifting heavy concrete building segments and for heavy hauls
