This refers to the height to the highest point of the crane equipment after installation. Be sure to consider any crane attachments and how they might affect the height, as well. Where possible, you want full rotational potention and no overhead obstructions.
Height Under Boom
This refers to the distance to the floor from the underside of the boom of the lifting equipment. Take the size of the hoist and the amount of lifting distance into consideration. This will allow you to select the optimal Height Under Boom for your operation.
Crane Equipment Boom Rotation
Different types of jib cranes offer different amounts of rotation. For example, freestanding and mast-type jibs offer 360-degree retation. Wall-mounted jib-cranes offer 200-degree rotation.
Articulating jibs offer 360-degree rotation on the inner and outer arm. This is if they’re freestanding or ceiling mounted. Otherwise, wall-mounted articulating jibs offer 360-degree outer arm. They will also offer 200-degree rotation on the inner arm. Be sure to consider this when selecting a jib crane.
