How To Select The Right Crane For Your Needs
The key to selecting the right crane for your upcoming projects is knowing the requirements of the job and asking the right questions including:
How High Is The Lift?
When selecting your crane you will need to ensure that the boom is long enough to reach the maximum height of the lift. However, when determining the right boom length for your crane, you will need to take into account more than just the height of the lift as wind conditions and the weight of the loan can influence which crane is most appropriate.
How Heavy Is The Load?
Another essential factor to consider is the weight of the heaviest load to be lifted. This will help to determine the minimum lifting capacity of the crane you need. Additionally, the combined height and weight of the lift will help to determine the size of crane needed.
What Site Access Is Available?
Once you’ve worked out the necessary height and lifting capacity of your crane, consider the available site access. This will greatly inform your decision when selecting the right crane as the first thing you need your crane to do is actually make it on site.
For example, if your job site has no road access with uneven ground, an all terrain or rough terrain crane may be the right choice. Or if your job site has limited room and tight access, the compact Franna crane may be the right choice.
Are There Any Hazards?
It pays to take the time to identify any hazards or obstacles that may get in the way of the crane during the lift such as power lines, trees, and even other buildings. This can influence the type of crane that is needed to complete the job safely and efficiently.
