Crane Bodies

Levan Machine and Truck Equipment has an excellent selection of crane body trucks to meet customers’ needs in the Lehigh Region, including Berks, Lehigh, and Montgomery counties. If you are looking for a vehicle that enables you to lift heavy or oversized objects easily, a crane body truck may be the answer.

A crane body truck has a truck bed fitted with a reinforced heavy crane. Crane body trucks are constructed with lifting heavy weights in mind. They are reinforced for extra durability to ensure that the crane body truck can withstand the torsional forces that can occur during lifting, allowing them to effectively and safely lift heavy goods.

Crane body trucks are available in a variety of sizes to meet your needs. We offer a range of options from light-duty to heavy-duty to accommodate whatever you need to lift. Crane body trucks are highly effective tools with various uses in construction, mining, and even agriculture. Whatever new project you are taking on, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment has the right crane body truck to fulfill your needs.

Efficient Design

Our crane body trucks are designed with convenience in mind. Our crane body trucks come equipped with all the latest features and extra storage space to enhance the ease of use for the operator. These convenient features will assist you in getting the job done efficiently and effectively, saving you a lot of time. Not only does this have the potential to save you hours of work and minimize job costs, it dramatically increases the safety of lifting heavy objects as well.

Safety First


Safety should always be a top priority on any job, and crane body trucks can certainly facilitate this. Using hydraulics, the crane consists of several telescoping sections to lift loads. This can allow you to position the truck in an optimal location for safe operation and make it easy to use in tight spots.

While a crane body truck can offer a significant upgrade to your job site capabilities, it is important to consider quality when choosing what option is best for you. After all, you are probably planning to use it for lifting jobs for years to come, so proper installation and maintenance are paramount.

The Knapheide and Stellar Industries Inc. crane body trucks offered by Levan Machine and Truck Equipment are top quality and expertly installed, reducing the need for expensive repair work over the life of the truck. A Levan Machine and Truck Equipment crane body truck is an economical and durable investment that will serve you for years to come.

Choosing the Right Crane Body Truck

Choosing the right crane body truck for any job can be a daunting task. Those truck bodies are available in steel or aluminum, and you have many equipment options to choose from. Our team can help you select the correct body to maximize payload and crane capacity.


The crane body truck needs to be able to handle the weight that you plan to lift. To determine the capacity required for your job, multiply the weight you want to lift by the distance to raise it. Keep in mind that capacity is measured in foot-pounds. For example, if you are lifting 500 pounds for a distance of 20 feet, you will require a crane body truck with a capacity of at least 10,000 foot-pounds.

Truck Design

Another essential aspect to consider when selecting which crane body truck meets your needs is the objects you plan to lift. Crane body trucks come in different shapes and sizes, so choose a truck equipped to lift what you need.


An additional factor to consider is any extra tools or capabilities required—for example, a forklift for lifting pallets or a bucket to carry bricks and blocks. These items can make life a lot easier on-site, and they can be fitted onto the crane body truck that you choose, saving you time and, ultimately, money.

Crane Location

Last but certainly not least, you should consider whether you’ll need a front or rear-mounted crane body. Front-mounted crane body trucks offer you improved stability, whereas rear-mounted crane body trucks have a much higher capacity.
