Lifting capacity of cranes varies from ton to ton. Generally, customers demand cranes which bear ½ to 6 ton, however, for the applications where moving is done on an extreme level, special cranes ranging from 200 to 300 tons are suggested. Shifting items within few meters may sound easier for you, but it takes lots of strength which human power cannot provide. From a few meters to 100 meters, cranes just make the work easier and fast. Also, using crane can reduce the chances of unwanted accidents.

In short, they are used in anywhere, where heavy loads (load 100 to 300 tons) are needed to move from ground to a few meters, for example, Port Area/ Ship Yards. They are also majorly used on the military vehicles. But, generally for construction sites and storage businesses capacity up to 6 tons suffice.
Moreover, there is another usage of this is that it is used in carrying coals, minerals, and scrapings. For this type of usage, it uses bucket instead of hook.
