New PCSA Standard for Hydraulic Cranes - Its Purposes and Implications 690596
For several years now, there has been a need for standards on a new type of equipment called mobile hydraulic cranes. This is a recent development which is advancing rapidly in design and offers extended mobility and flexibility in operation.
In 1967, the PCSA general membership requested PCSA Standards Committee to formulate and draft a standard for mobile hydraulic cranes which is now called PCSA Standard No. 2.
The purpose of this paper is to outline briefly the background and activity of the PCSA committee and its working together with other important committees, to clarify some of the values in the standard and the importance of proper machine inspection and maintenance and application and operation therein, and to recognize accepted standards for these machines.
