Crane mats and proper ground conditions are essential to making a crane rental project go off without a hitch. In the crane rental business it is standard to mitigate risks in this very risky industry. That is where crane mats come into play. They help reduce the force you placing on the contact patch [i.e ground or supporting surface].
