crane man basket


Each of our cranes suspended man baskets and material handling cages come equipped with our unique test weight system.


Lifting Technologies boasts a unique detachable test weight system that creates an easy and job site friendly method of testing our dependable product.

The Lifting Technologies test weight system was created in response to OSHA’s new crane personnel lifting rule – 29 CFR Part 1926.550(g), which stipulates that a trial lift/proof test is required each time a crane is moved to a new location. In 2010, this rule was revised again and adopted 29 CFR Part 1926-1431 and currently provides the standard to which we build our man baskets.

By means of simple easy-on/easy-off pins, our system provides an accurate 125% test load with the weight evenly distributed to the platform frame and floor, allowing you to conduct proof tests in a matter of minutes.
