Flat Top Tower Cranes
A flat top tower crane has a compact head and moveable cab. This makes it a better choice for sites where height restrictions mean you must use a crane that does not exceed a certain height. Flat top cranes don't have the apex on the crane that the hammerhead does, eliminating the need for a certain clearance between cranes in order to allow them to slew safely. Flat top cranes are ideal for congested work sites or sites where cranes need to overlap. They are also a great option for working near airports or power plants.
Another appealing feature of a flat top crane is that it allows the jib to be pre-assembled and installed directly. With many other types of cranes, the jib has to be assembled separately on site. Another benefit of flat top cranes is the way they work well for job sites where there is more than one crane working at a time. The lack of an apex on the crane means others in the area can slew over the jib with no chance of making contact with the frame.
