Find The Right Crane or Lifting Solution

Every job that requires over-the-top lifting needs a crane, but choosing the right crane depends on the details. General Steel Crane & Rigging is based in Kentucky, so our KY crane rental clients will find the widest selection of cranes and support services close to home. We have crane sizes for various load capacities and maneuverability designs, with options for unoperated and professionally operated rigs.

Truck Cranes

Truck cranes are the most maneuverable in small spaces on pavement and flat ground. The smallest of your crane & rigging options, truck cranes are often preferred for specific and small-scale projects, including building expansions and spot repairs that require lifted rigging.

All-Terrain Cranes

All-terrain cranes are the best rated for highway efficiency, making them ideal for multi-site work and large jobs requiring both on-road and some off-road positioning. These are a great choice if you need a versatile crane that will be on the move during your project.

Rough-Terrain Cranes

Rough-terrain cranes are preferred if you are preparing a site that still needs to be finished or are altering a site that will not be paved over. Our rough-terrain cranes can handle steep ground, loose terrain, and small-scale obstacles, including rocky terrain, with three different steering modes.
