With the placement of the machinery and forming
of the building panels in progress, your next considera-
tions are the placement and the weight-lifiing capabil-
ities of the crane. Check the weight-lifiing chart of the
crane for its maximum weight capacity. This dictates the
number of panels (recommend 5/ABM 120 and 3/ABM
240) you can safely lift at the operating distance. As
with all crane operations, attempting to lift more than
the rated capacity can cause the crane to turn over.
Attaching the spreader bar (fig. 9-14) to the curved
formed panels is a critical step; failure to clamp the
