What Is a Slewing Mobile Crane?
A slewing mobile crane is any mobile crane which has a jib or a boom that can be rotated. The rotating, turn-able section offers greater site versatility. It can be anchored into place while the boom continues to operate in a 360° circle. By comparison, non-slewing cranes don’t have rotation joints
