MyCrane has launched its crane selection tool, which allows users to identify for the ideal crane for their lift, as well as the crane’s optimum configuration.
Following extensive development and testing, the free tool is already loaded with technical data about crawler cranes and mobile cranes manufactured by Liebherr, Tadano, XCMG, Sany and Grove. Further cranes and manufacturers are being added on a continuous basis.
After inputting the radius, the height of the lift and the dimensions and weight of the cargo, clients can use the selector tool to find the right equipment. They can then visit the procurement portal to search for the crane they need.
The MyCrane team can also help if further engineering support is required, connecting clients with appropriate suppliers.
Commenting on the launch of the selector tool, MyCrane ceo Andrei Geikalo said: “Our mission is to innovate in order to make life easier for all those involved in the lifting industry, which is why we are introducing new tools such as this.
“Before any client can proceed with a lifting project, they first need to determine which capacity crane should be used. By integrating official crane manufacturer charts, which detail the capacity of the crane in certain configurations, our selector tool is able to identify the right equipment while also taking the customer’s cargo into consideration, and the position of the crane.
“Just as we have done with our digital crane rental tool, we have improved the work process for the customer. No longer do engineers at construction and lifting companies have to refer to physical crane charts to manually calculate the right crane configuration. Now, they can simply access MyCrane to find the right crane for the task – and for free.”
