Mobile Crane Daily Inspection Checklist Form

Crane is one of the heavy equipment used as a lifting device in construction projects. Cranes work by lifting the material to be moved, moving it horizontally, then lowering the material where desired.

Cranes are used for lifting and transporting indoors and outdoors. Various types of cranes and different structures. The type of crane that is indoors has a structure that is usually above close to the roof of the room. In contrast to lift aircraft used in open areas, the frame structure has supports that stand upright on the ground.

Types of cranes according to the division of construction

This tool has a large shape and strength and can rotate up to 360 degrees and reach several tens of meters. Cranes are generally used in project works, ports, workshops, industry, warehousing and others.

  • Crawler cranes

Crawler Crane is a lifting equipment that is generally used in development projects and ports with a reach that is not too long. This type has a top that can move 360 degrees. With crawler wheels, this type of crane can move around the project site while doing its work. When the crane is to be used elsewhere, the crane is transported using a lowbed trailer. This transportation is done by disassembling the boom into parts to facilitate the transportation process.

  • Mobile Cranes

Mobile Crane or Truck Crane is a crane lifting device that is directly attached to the car so that it can be easily transported directly to the work site without having to use a vehicle (trailer). This crane has legs (foundations/poles) which are attached when operating to keep the crane balanced. Most of these mobile cranes also operate at ports to smooth the loading and unloading process, we often see how this mobile crane works by transporting/moving containers or other goods onto trucks.

Tower crane is a tool used to lift material vertically and horizontally to a high place with limited space. This type of crane is divided based on how the crane stands, namely cranes that can stand freely, cranes on rails, cranes moored to buildings and climbing cranes.

  • Crane Hydraulics

Usually all types of cranes use hydraulic (oil) and pheneumatic (air) systems to work. But in a special way hydraulic cranes are cranes that are commonly used in workshops and warehousing, ports and others, which have a simple structure. This crane is usually placed at one point and not to be moved and with a reach that is not too long and a rotation of only 180 degrees. So generally in a workshop / warehousing there are more than one crane.

  • Hoist Cranes

Hoist crane is a type of lift aircraft that is widely used as a lifting and transporting tool in industrial areas, factories and workshops. This lifting aircraft is equipped with wheels and rails so that it can move forward and backward to support its work process. Crane Hoist is used in the process of lifting light weight loads to medium heavy loads. Crane Hoist is commonly used for lifting and transporting loads indoors. The location of the crane hoist is above close to the roof of the room.

  • Jib Crane

Jib cranes are lifting equipment that come in various sizes, small jib cranes are generally used in workshops and warehousing to move relatively heavy items. The jib crane has a work system and engine that is similar to that of a “Hoist Crane” and has a structure similar to “Hydraulic Crane“. Parts of the crane are the mast or main mast, jib and counter jib, counter weight, trolley and tie ropes. Mast is a vertical pole that stands on the base or base. Jib is a horizontal pole whose length is determined based on the desired reach.


And below is a daily inspection checklist for cranes that you must do before using the heavy equipment.
