Truck-mounted cranes are becoming an indispensible tool for work truck users who deal in a wide range of applications. From public works departments and municipalities, to heavy railroad activities and utility construction, their ruggedness and mobility make them capable of providing measurable value to virtually any operation that requires lifting.

As a leading manufacturer of material handling systems, IMT cranes can be found on heavy-duty work trucks and mechanics trucks upfitted by Auto Truck Group. Details regarding the IMT line of telescopic and articulating cranes, and key applications can be found below.

Telescopic Cranes  – Offering 18 different models with maximum lifting capacities ranging from 950 lbs. (.5/4 model) to as much as 14,000 lbs. (14000 model), IMT compact telescopic cranes require minimal mounting space and are an ideal option for mechanic trucks that require room for payloads.

Articulating Cranes –With superior lift-to-weight ratios and long reach capabilities, IMT truck-mounted articulating cranes are highly maneuverable and perfect for operation on job sites where availability of space is an issue. Offering 19 different models with maximum lifting capacities ranging from 1,740 tons (2.5/18 model) to as much as 12,000 lbs (7415 model), these compact cranes offer premium performance, added strength and superior stability.

IMT’s extensive line of telescoping and articulating cranes can be used to improve truck performance and increase jobsite productivity in a wide range of industries, including:

Public Works / Municipalities – In public works departments where funds are generally tight, making the most out of every purchase is of the utmost importance. Whether you deal with streets, utilities, parks, or water, IMT truck-mounted cranes are perfect for municipalities that perform both light and heavy-duty activities on a daily basis.

Utilities – IMT truck-mounted cranes are widely used throughout the electric, water and gas utility industries. With safety and ruggedness in mind, our cranes are designed to handle the installation, repair and maintenance of pipelines and transmission lines in even the harshest of outdoor environments.
