Mini Tator!!

Received a call from a Cruise Ship company that was docked in New Bedford Harbor to assist them in lifting a couple of propellers.  Apparently the propellers were being refurbished and needed to be placed on the deck of the Cruise Ship to be replaced in Virginia when they arrived at their destination.  We responded with our mini tracked crane and lifted the propellers one at a time onto the deck of the cruise ship.

not to nit-pick, but i have run cranes for 20 years and have to point out, you should scope out to your maximum boom length needed before picking. i have yet to run a crane that likes to be scoped under load, and most expressly forbid it.
that being said, what a sweet little rig.

What are you saying I checked it out had JUST enough reach I'm not sure what your saying. Thanks Eric

Eric, I think what qball is saying is that you are not supposed to extended a crane boom while it is loaded, like you can with most tow trucks/wreckers.  So, you should extend as far as needed to pick up the load, and then swing and set down the load without extending out any farther.  Basically, replace "scope/scoped" with "extend/extended" in his sentence.  David V.

 

Acestowing said:

I believe that is what he was getting at. I was also told this by a crane operator a couple years ago also.

 

David V said:

And probably, "scope" is derived from "telescope", but not the one you look throughhappy.gif.  David V
