I'm not aware of a existing construction crane model, but it would be possible to build a URDF model of one and perform collision checking on that one. As mentioned, there is no support for flexible parts, so these would have to be approximated by chaining multiple small rigid links after another with joints between them. Such an approach has for instance been used for the iRobot hand URDF used during the DRC, see here.
