Terex Cranes has launched the Terex Liftplan – a free online lift planning tool for customers’ lifting operations.
Users can select from a range of Terex cranes and specify the load, height and radius of the lift involved. A copy of the lift plan is then available to print out. The lift planning tool can also be used on site on an ad-hoc basis, so should conditions change, the driver simply enters the new information and the system automatically recalculates.
Michael Klein, product marketing said: “Historically, only customers with big machines and complicated lifts have used lift planning tools. Today this facility is available to anyone who uses a Terex crane, as it will allow smaller jobs to be better planned and therefore safer. It might be the fleet owner contracted to carry out a particular project, or one of his hire customers needing information on site.”
The new tool is available in nine different languages, uses either imperial or metric units and employs a variety of different methods to determine the best machine to deliver safety, performance and productivity on site.
