Franna Cranes: The Versatile Workhorses of Australian Construction

Franna cranes are a uniquely Australian innovation that has transformed the construction and heavy lifting industries. These mobile cranes are known for their ability to lift and carry heavy loads across challenging terrain, saving time and resources on countless jobsites.

What is a Franna Crane?

A Franna crane is essentially a powerful crane mounted on a truck-like chassis. This design grants them the mobility of a truck and the lifting capabilities of a traditional mobile crane. Unlike other mobile cranes, Franna cranes don’t require outriggers, meaning they can be set up and operational in a matter of minutes – perfect for fast-paced worksites.

Why Are Franna Cranes So Popular?

  • Versatility: Franna cranes excel in a wide range of applications within construction, mining, oil and gas, and infrastructure development. Their lifting power and reach make them ideal for maneuvering materials on busy jobsites.
  • Maneuverability: The articulated steering system of a Franna crane provides superb maneuverability. This allows them to navigate tight spaces and work comfortably in congested areas where traditional cranes would struggle.
  • Speed: Since Franna cranes can travel with a load attached, there’s no need to continuously rig and de-rig a crane as you move materials. Plus, their roadworthy design allows them to travel to and from jobsites quickly.

History of the Franna Crane

The Franna crane was invented by Dave Francis in the 1970s. Francis recognized the need for a mobile crane that could lift and transport loads without constant setup and breakdown. The original Franna design was built using truck components, establishing the blueprint for this iconic class of crane.

Key Specifications of Franna Cranes

Here’s a quick look at some typical specifications:

  • Lifting Capacity: Franna cranes are available in a range of sizes, with lifting capacities from 10 tonnes to 40 tonnes or more.
  • Boom Length: Boom lengths on Franna cranes can vary, providing tailored reach for specific tasks.
