FAQs

Can a boom lift be used as a crane?

  • A boom lift and a crane have different capabilities and are used for different job types. A crane is not suitable for lifting workers, and a boom lift does not have the same lifting strength as a crane. Additionally, according to OSHA, an aerial lift should not be used as a crane.

How much can a tower crane lift?

  • The lifting capacity of a tower crane varies, but typically, the maximum lifting power is 19.8 tons or 18 metric tons with a counterweight of 20 tons or 16.3 metric tons.

Can you use diesel forklifts indoors?

  • Diesel forklifts are best suited for outdoor projects and jobsites. Diesel engines have exhaust emissions that could be potentially hazardous and negatively impact the health of your workers. Diesel exhaust emissions are gases and vapors such as nitrous oxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide, as well as fine particles known as diesel particulate matter (DPM).
