Other Info:

This course is designed for operators of a vehicle-mounted loading crane with under 10 metre tonnes capacity, if your vehicle loading crane has over 10m tonnes capacity, you are required to hold a valid HRW crane licence either CV or above, which is not covered in this course. Please read the following documents regarding how to determine if your crane has an over or under 10 metre tonnes capacity and lifting gear and licensed Dogman requirements.

How do I calculate the Metre x Tonne capacity of my Vehicle-Mounted Loading Crane?

Multiply the SWL (t) x the working radius (m) for that SWL = metre tonnes from the centre line of slew to the centre line of hook. This calculation must be done for each safe working load (SWL) on the load chart.  If any calculation equals 10 metre tonnes lifting capacity or greater, the crane operator will require a High Risk Work Licence. Please refer to our CV course for HRWL information or contact us on 1300 26 27 21 or email
