A truck-mounted crane is a type of equipment that lifts, turns and lifts the cargo by means of hydraulic jacking and telescoping systems. It is usually mounted on a truck. The advantage of truck mounted cranes is to integrate hoisting and transportation into one.

It is built for driving on paved roads. Its speed is 65 km/hour at least. The truck is driven by a diesel engine with shift-gear gearbox. These machines are ideal for driving long distances on motorways. Since the maintenance costs of the truck are low, it is a relatively cheap crane.
