How do I determine if my Vehicle Loading Crane has an over 10 metre tonnes capacity?

To calculate the metre tonne rating of your crane, you need to:

  1. Refer to your crane’s load chart.
  2. Determine from the load chart the MAXIMUM LOAD your crane can lift.
  3. Determine the MAXIMUM RADIUS it can lift the MAXIMUM LOAD.
  4. Multiply together these 2 numbers (Metres x Tonnes)
  5. If the answer is equal to or greater than 10, then you require a license to operate your Vehicle Loading Crane.
