Terex Cranes has launhced a free online lift planning tool for Terex crane owners and their customers.

The Terex Liftplan helps customers select the right Terex crane to perform a configured lift in a safe and efficient way, the manufacturer said.

The planner can be accessed from any location with an internet connection, is available in nine languages and works in either imperial or metric units. Users select from a range of Terex cranes and specify the load, height and radius of the lift involved. A copy of the lift plan is then available to print out, a company spokesperson said.

The lift planning tool can be used on site on an ad-hoc basis, a spokesperson added. Crane operators can also enter in new information on the planner if conditions of the lift change.

Michael Klein, Terex product marketing manager, said, “Historically, only customers with big machines and complicated lifts have used lift planning tools. Today, we are very happy that this facility is available to anyone who uses a Terex crane, as it will allow smaller jobs to be better planned and therefore safer. It might be the fleet owner contracted to carry out a particular project, or one of his hire customers needing information on site.

“We expect it to be used in a number of different ways, by different people: by Terex territory managers, Terex distributors when talking to new and existing customers, customers themselves and, of course, by hirers on a day-to-day basis who want to pre-plan their lifts and make sure they have the best Terex crane for the job in hand. Overall, it provides a real benefit for anyone choosing and using a Terex crane,” added Klein.
