In the crane industry, the All terrain crane is considered the luxury version of a mobile hydraulic crane, being likened to driving a Hummer or Range Rover on pavement. All terrain cranes can be considered a hybrid between a mobile truck crane and a rough terrain crane. Another big selling point of this crane is its multi-functional capability to travel on all kinds of off-road terrain and as well as down highways at top speeds
They are also known as "RT" cranes or "off-road" cranes. An RT crane typically has a hydraulic boom, four tires, two axles, and features four-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, increasing maneuverability for off-road operations.

A mobile crane is a cable-controlled crane mounted on crawlers or rubber-tired carriers or a hydraulic-powered crane with a telescoping boom mounted on truck-type carriers or as self-propelled models.
A flatbed truck (or flatbed lorry in British English) is a type of truck which can be either articulated or rigid. As the name suggests, its bodywork is just an entirely flat, level 'bed' with no sides or roof. This allows for quick and easy loading of goods, and consequently they are used to transport heavy loads that are not delicate or vulnerable to rain, and also for abnormal loads that require more space than is available on a closed body.
