Load moment. This criterion is measured in tons per meter (tpm) and influences on load-bearing capacity. Criterion is measured by calculating load and the distance of load transportation.

Reach of crane. This criterion defines maximum load-bearing as in truck-mounted cranes there is no weight-counterbalance. Average length of crane in working order is 8 meters – this is enough for operation on the vehicle platform 5-7 meters long.

Construction type. There are cable and collapsible models of truck-mounted cranes. Cable cranes have a bigger reach of crane and can transport cargos to various distances. Collapsible (hydraulic) crane has increased mobility and flexibility and has maximum precision in the work process.
