    Greetings Sister Zulile...

    Would i take a job on this construction crane...sure...I ran an over head crane for over 15 yrs. I have seen the Crane evolve over the years. Everything from being 1700 feet into the air to run it, to one where u stand on the ground and run it with a remote control. The remote ones are much closer to the ground... to me there is no difference. The theory behind a crane is to move an object with less swing as possible ...in order to do this u start your movement out slow..and increase the speed as u go. To stop it, you start to reverse that same move always remembering to start it way before your stopping point. When dealing with a construction crane your most dangerous element is wind. This can play havoc on your load...also causing swing on the lift. So u have to contend with that also. But to an experienced crane man this is no big deal.
