During the first 27 years in business, Auto Crane focused solely on the development and expansion of the telescoping crane line, offering cranes that could lift as much as three tons. In 1985, Auto Crane introduced their first service body designed exclusively for use with a telescoping crane. These extraordinarily robust bodies were designed specifically to support the enormous stress demands inflicted by the crane when in operation. Together, this crane and body combination gave the mechanic the ability to transport all the necessary equipment required to complete a repair in the field. Because of this, mechanics were able to service equipment safer and more efficiently than ever before, drastically reducing costly downtime.
