Construction firms -- and the managers tasked with making their purchases -- have a laundry list of requirements that the rough terrain cranes they buy must meet.

A number of businesses run into the issue of needing specialized equipment for a particular project. The decision about whether this piece of equipment should be rented or purchased can make a big difference in the stability of the company itself. Cranes are one of the most common pieces of specialty equipment that cause firms, such as construction companies, to wonder if renting or buying is better for their bottom line.
Lifting equipment safety should be at the top of your list of priorities on any crane operation. Accidents can be prevented if you approach safety concerns proactively rather than reactively. The implementation of a crane safety program can improve productivity, decrease downtime from needing repairs, keep your employees safe and keep bystanders in the area safe at all times.
