PURPOSE AND FUNCTION.
This handbook provides operation instructions for the Crane, Wheel-
mounted, Self Propelled for Aircraft Maintenance and Positioning (SCAMP),
Grove Manufacturing Co. Model RT41AA. The SCAMP is shown in figure
1-1 which identifies the major components.
The Grove Model RT41AA hydraulic, telescoping boom, crane (SCAMP) was
designed for the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Command according to
Procurement Specification 3810-APS-000. It is a rough terrain, four ton
capacity machine intended for use in removing, replacing, and positioning
components and assemblies and lifting Army aircraft. It is also used for
towing or spotting aircraft on the flight line, unimproved airfields, and
heliports. The crane is transportable, without disassembly, by C-130, C-141
and C-5A aircraft and may be air lifted by Army medium lift helicopters.
SPEED AND GRADEABILITY.
TRACTIVE EFFORT AT STALL
@ STALL (%)
NOTE: All performance data is based on a 14,600 lb. (6623 KG) gross crane
weight with 9.00 x 20 ties, White D-3400 engine and may vary plus or minus
10% due to variations in engine performance and vehicle weights. Grade-
ability values above 45% (4 x 4) and 27'% (4 x 2) are theoretical. Cranes
should be operated within the limits of engine crankcase design.
