Use this guide to select the correct crane for your needs, according to the weight and distance of the object you want to be lifted.

  1. The horizontal bar at the top of the table shows the horizontal distance (radius) the crane needs to operate at.
  2. The vertical bar running down the left hand side of each table shows the weight of the load.
  3. The crane capacity is shown where the weight row intersects the radius column. Click this value to see the cranes we have available in that range.

Please be aware this table is only a guide; many factors will affect how much weight a machine can lift such as ground conditions, height of the lift and overhead room. Please call us if you are not sure; we would be happy to discuss your requirements and help you choose the correct machine. SCA will not be held responsible for any inaccuracies.
