Manitowoc Cranes has announced a new smartphone app for iOS and Android devices that will help crane operators and owners to quickly and easily determine the overall boom and jib length combination required for a lift.
The Manitowoc Boom Length Selector App (Google Play / iOS) 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.
Manitowoc is the first manufacturer in the crane industry to release a smartphone app of this kind. The app currently has a five-star rating on Google Play.
The app is available now for free in both the App Store (Apple) and Google Play Store (Android) by searching for “Manitowoc Boom Length Selector.”
