Manitowoc Cranes has released a new smartphone app to help crane operators and owners easily determine the overall boom and jib length combination required for a lift.
The Manitowoc Boom Length Selector app allows users to select specific boom and jib length combinations, building heights, boom radii, and other crane parameters using an easy sliding scale to determine the basic crane setup for a specific lift.
“By simply entering a few details, the app immediately generates a setup for that specific lift. It is a great tool to use during pre-planning or on site to get the job done,” said John Alexander, director of all-terrain crane service, mobile training and telematics at Manitowoc.
The app is available for free in the App Store (for iPhones) and Google Play Store (for Androids).
