The Evolution into Hydraulics
WWII forced much of society to improve overall creativity. During this specific period in history, the development and design of cranes evolved greatly. These industrial machines changed the face of the construction business.
The very first hydraulic crane was made during 1946 by crane manufacturer F. Taylor & Sons. This very first unit was not able to slew or luff and was just used by the company. When it joined with Coles during the year 1959, this unit opened up the doors for a 50 and 42 Series. A Morris W.D. chassis is what the mobile hydraulic crane was initially placed on.
The hydraulic crane by Taylor & Sons operated on a boom powered by a hydraulic pump as well as cylinders that were lowered and lifted by a hydraulic pump. When the business was not able to utilize army vehicles as chassis for the machine, they began production for designing their very own mobile hydraulic cranes.
These very first machines gained much praise and were heralded as remarkable equipments. They were supposed to be capable of rebuilding all which was ruined by bombs during the war. The cranes were responsible for helping put together countries, cities and individual homes. Hydraulic systems became designed more and more complex. The gear and pump systems were able to be powered while the trucks remained immobile. Companies such as Hydrauliska Instustri AB made the first truck loader crane appearance on the market.
The A2 crane was introduced during the year 1952. This unit was mounted directly to the back of a Chevy truck. It was complete with a hooked winch and hydraulic lifting cylinders. This loader crane started a huge trend in the industry. A company situated in Bremen, called Atlas Weyhausen started making similar versions of this equipment.
Cranes soon after the war were becoming more advanced. Different companies and manufacturers making the winches developed precise telescopic booms, and the hydraulic pumps were improved and using different materials in order to change the way the crane was developed.
