ARTICULATED BOOM TRUCK COURSE OVERVIEW In our highly mechanized world, cranes are the workhorses that have increased economic growth and productivity in construction, mining, logging, maritime, production and service facilities. Mobile cranes are versatile machines that can be used for many job applications from loading and unloading materials to placing those materials or personnel at heights hundreds of feet high. Mobile cranes come in all sizes. From large all terrain cranes used to lift loads in excess of 75 tons to small capacity utility truck cranes used for lifting much smaller loads, training is needed to ensure safe operation and productivity. During this training we will cover the anatomy of the crane and stress the importance of inspecting it each day before it is put into service.
