United Rentals offers a full line of crane rentals, including crane trucks, carry deck cranes and walk behind cranes. Mobile truck cranes have a lift mounted on a standard production chassis for highway access and typically offer dual operator control stations. The versatility of the carry deck crane — a smaller version of a crane truck — makes it ideal for lifting material that requires a low, compact profile and the ability to clear overhead obstacles and maneuver in tight spaces. Walk behind cranes are exactly that — lifts that you walk behind to operate. They offer the operator maximum maneuverability and control.
