By consulting the `On Outriggers'360Chart (figure 4-5), it is found that the
crane capacity at 15 foot radius, for all boom lengths, is 4500 pounds. The
actual load which will be lifted = 3400 pounds + 128 pounds (hook block)
+100 pounds (slings) = 3628 pounds, is well within SCAMP capacity. The,
transmission may be lifted and swung free of the aircraft and Iowered to the
It is now desired to carry the transmission to a nearby hangar. Consulting the
On Rubber Capacities/Boom Centered Over Front Chart, it is found that up
to 5000 pounds may be carried at 10 foot radius over the front. A fully
retracted boom is indicated for this lift and speed should not exceed 2.5 mph.
Carry the transmission to the desired location.
USING THE CRANE FOR TOWING
The crane maybe used for towing and spotting aircraft using either the front
or rear mounted pintle hooks. The turntable lock pin should be inserted to
lock the boom over the opposite end from the end to be used for towing.
