Crane Inspection and Safe Operation Instructions | Wallace Cranes

Introduction

These instruction packets were developed by Wallace Cranes with the goal of helping customers safely inspect, assemble, operate, and disassemble their gantry cranes.

Detailed Packets

Detailed packets containing instructions for how to safely assemble, adjust, inspect, and operate your Wallace crane are contained the packets below. Learn where to find safety tags and labels. All packets are downloadable and printable PDFs. There are also available on individual model pages which you can get to from the main portable adjustable gantry cranes page.

Packet instructions were derived from company proprietary materials and three source documents – ANSI B30.17, CMAA Specification #74 Revised 1987, and OSHA 1910.179. Our documents are excerpts intended to serve as general guidelines. They should not be considered the sole source of information when performing routine maintenance and inspection tasks.

The crane frame refers to the shape of the crane’s main and brace legs. Unless otherwise noted, posts and frames are all the same size.
