2-29. LIGHT MATERIAL HANDLING CRANE (LMHC) OPERATION
a. Determine Required Light Material Handling Crane (LMHC) Settings.
(1) Determine the weight of load.
(2) Determine the radius from centerline of LMHC rotation to position of load.
(3) To determine boom angle and length required for load being lifted see Table 2-9.
Load to be lifted from ground is at a radius of 48 inches (122 cm) from LMHC
centerline of rotation and must be placed on cargo bed.
Step 1. Determine the load
= 1,200 pounds (545 kgs)
pounds (4.5 kgs)
= 1,210 pounds (549 kgs)
Refer to Capacity Chart in Table 2-9 to see that load does not exceed
