Jacobs Transport


Many industrial based trucks are designed to work as carriers. Their purpose is to transport industrial materials to and from various destinations, be it from factory to stores or from the harbours to factories. Industrial based trucks are able to pick up and deposit loads, eliminating the need of manual lifting and an additional charge of transporting. Dependant on their purposes, industrial trucks may be classified as “power trucks”

These trucks, dependant on their industry requirements, may have crane’s attached to the rear ends of the trucks. These cranes are not only capable of lifting heavy objects, but can also shift objects horizontally. These forms of truck cranes have come into the industry and has a widespread application. They are commonly spotted on the back of trucks carrying goods such as bricks.

These cranes are generally mounted to the back of a heavy truck and does require some modification for fitment! Our Jacobs Transport crane trucks have transported some of the most precious cargo our South African soil as seen, including the likes of a full scale fighter jet!

Truck cranes are generally built using unsupported telescope booms. The unsupported telescope beams are made up from collapsible sections that can extended outward to reach a desired drop of point. They also retract once the task at hand has been completed.
