This SAE Recommended Practice applies to mobile cranes when used in lifting crane service which are equipped with boom length indicating devices. The purpose of this recommended practice is to establish the minimum performance requirements of systems which measure and display to the operator, or other responsible persons, the boom length at which a load is being lifted by cranes with variable length, telescopic booms.
The scope of this SAE Recommended Practice is limited to cranes mounted on a fixed platform lifting loads from a vessel alongside. The size of the vessel is assumed not to exceed that of a work boat as defined in 3.14.
The scope of this SAE Information Report is limited to a lift crane mounted on a fixed or floating platform, lifting loads from a vessel alongside. The size of the vessel is assumed not to exceed that of a workboat as defined in 3.15.
This SAE Recommended Practice applies to the boomstop for the main boom of all mobile construction type cranes having rope supported booms, equipped for hook work, clamshell, magnet, grapple, or concrete bucket attachments.
This SAE Recommended Practice applies to stationary usage of mobile construction-type cranes, crawler or rubber-tire mounted, on outriggers or on tires, when used for lifting crane, clamshell, dragline, magnet, pile driver, or similar service.
This SAE Standard applies to cranes which are equipped to adjust the boom angle by hoisting and lowering means through rope reeving. The purpose of this standard is to define the function and to stipulate the requirements of an automatic device to prevent raising a variable angle boom above its highest specified angle.
This SAE Information Report applies to wire rope supported, latticed crane boom systems mounted on mobile construction type cranes for lift crane service. The purpose of this document is to establish criteria for the analytical evaluation of the basic structural competence of wire rope supported latticed crane boom systems. The criteria and procedures specified include the evaluation of elastic stability for the overall boom system and individual members of the system.
This document applies primarily to mobile cranes that lift loads by means of a drum and hoist line mechanism. It can be used to determine the hoist line speed and power of other hoist line mechanisms, if the load can be held constant and hoist line travel distance is sufficient for the accuracy of the line speed measurements prescribed. This recommended practice applies to all mechanical, hydraulic, and electric powered hoist mechanisms.
This SAE Standard may be used for all revolving cranes wherein the capacity of the crane to support loads is based on its resistance to overturning. It is not applicable to cranes wherein the capacity of the crane is based on factors other than stability.
This SAE Recommended Practice applies to mobile, construction type, crane and cable excavator hand and foot controls. It should not be construed to limit the use of, or to apply to combination controls, automatic controls, or any other special operating control requirements.
The purpose of this recommended practice is to establish the minimum performance requirements for devices used to indicate to the crane operator by visual, audible, or tactile means the movement of a rope drum. This SAE Recommended Practice applies to cranes when used in lifting crane service which are equipped with rope drum rotation indicating devices.
The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to establish the minimum performance requirements of devices which signal and/or automatically prevent two-blocking. This SAE Recommended practice applies to cranes in lifting crane service which are equipped with two-block warning and/or limit systems.
This SAE Standard applies to mobile, construction-type lifting cranes of the cantilever boom type (Figure 1). Questions and comments regarding application or interpretation of the provisions in this test method should be referred to the originating SAE Committee.1
To establish conditions to be taken into consideration in determining rated loads for mobile cranes when overturning stability is the controlling factor. This recommended practice applies to mobile, construction-type lifting cranes with either lattice booms or cantilevered, telescopic booms.
This analysis applies to crane types as covered by Power crane and shovel Association Standard Number Two, Mobile Hydraulic Crane standards and ANSI B30.15; refer to 5.1. This calculation method has been established to illustrate an analysis to determine the competence of hydraulic telescopic cantilevered crane booms.
