Close-up: Specing a Propane Crane Truck

“The biggest mistake fuel oil people make when they go into the propane business is they buy too small a truck with too small a crane,” said Roger Smith of Kurtz Truck Equipment, Marathon, N.Y.

A service truck with a crane is needed for installing propane tanks above the hundred-gallon size, Smith said. The cost of a propane service truck with a crane can range from about $85,000 to about $125,000, depending on the specs, Smith said.
