Info needed call me

Hi Martin, For some reason the e mail went to my spam folder. I did some research and have nothing on that vintage crane for programming and have no vendors to reach out to either until Monday. I tried finding a PDF manual as well and came up empty.

If you could just go to the crane chart manual. And just explain to me what they mean on those settings. I'm kind of lost there.
Any way the way we want to use it, we will be extending boom 2 and 3 all the way out, we have 8 runs on the main hook and also have all our weights on except our saddle weights that you hang on the side. Total weight is 60,000 lbs. Loads that we will be lifting are up to 38,000 lbs

Click below for the load chart.

Hi Martin, Was I not helpful with the axle question and taking the time on the phone with you and researching the computer system? Experts are not employees of the site. We help on here and get credit for positive feedback and accepted answers which is split with the site. I would hope that my time was worth something. The site spits whatever deposit agreed with the experts and phone calls are a standard charge which I did honor. In either case, customer service can help you with any billing concerns.

Well you tried but whatever you supplied to me was what I already knew, There was nothing solved thru this at all..

Pleasure to help
