Terex Cranes presents a free online lift planning tool, called Terex Liftplan, designed to add value to customers’ lifting operations. Terex Liftplan speeds up and simplifies the process of selecting the right Terex crane to perform a configured lift in a safe and efficient way.
Available free of charge to Terex crane owners and their customers, it is extremely flexible and can be configured to meet specific and individual needs.
The tool can be accessed from any location – office, depot or job 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; the entire process only takes a couple of minutes.
Having first registered and then entered their personal settings, including a company logo if required, 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 be used on site on an ad-hoc basis. This is particularly useful for the crane driver should conditions change. The driver enters the new information and the system automatically does the rest.
