The folding arm truck crane is actually most used in the southern region, especially in the coastal areas of Guangdong. After all, the folding arm can be expanded for a variety of purposes, and the space utilization rate will be higher, but the corresponding total price is definitely more expensive than the straight arm truck mounted crane.
