Free Boom Configurator App from Manitowoc

Manitowoc Cranes releases a brand new mobile application that will help you setup your crane properly after entering various information specific to your lifting situation.

Just when you thought you had every single mobile app that made sense, Manitowoc Cranes releases a brand new Boom Length Selector App that is a MUST HAVE! The app is quite simple, but in a New York minute, there is plenty of good information right in front of you that can be used to aid in setting up your crane.


The new application is available for Android and iOS powered devices and allows users to select specific boom and jib length combinations to get started. Other pieces of information that come into play include the building height and boom radii, which are also important to keep in mind when setting up your crane for a specific lift.

Knowing This Information Is Important

I do not think we are the ones that have to mention how important each of these parameters is for your lifting situation. Even just having the specs off a little one way or another and your lift could be the worst part of your day. The Boom Length Selector App was made with this in mind and hopes to help all crane operators with crane setup for lifting with safety as the number 1 priority.

According to the Manitowoc website, "By simply entering a few details, the app immediately generates a setup for that specific lift. It is a great tool to use during pre-planning or on site to get the job done,” said John Alexander, director of all-terrain crane service, mobile training and telematics at Manitowoc." 

Manitowoc Cranes Keeps Innovating

Staying in front of your competition is hard in today's construction world where companies are trying to create machines that can work better, faster, take up less space and are even a little more affordable. Manitowoc helps cement its spot at the top with simple innovation like this brand new mobile application.

Other recent innovations by the company include a recent announcement that it will release six brand new cranes and several new lifting techniques at the upcoming Bauma 2019 event. According to the press release, Manitowoc will debut 6 new crane models that fit into the Potain and Grove product lines.

The company will also showcase new lifting techniques that it hopes will revolutionize the industry moving forward.
