A. "General Lift Plan, 0 to 75%"
B. "General Lift Plan, 75 to 85%, Section 1 and 2 completed"
C. "Critical Lift Plan, 85% or greater"
D. "Critical Lift Plan, multiple crane pick"
E. "Critical Lift Plan, Picking within the radius of powerlines"
Explanation
The two types of plans we use for our lifts are the General Lift Plan and the Critical Lift Plan. The General Lift Plan is used for lifts that range from 0 to 75% of the crane's capacity. The General Lift Plan also includes completing Section 1 and 2. The Critical Lift Plan is used for lifts that are 85% or greater of the crane's capacity. The Critical Lift Plan is also used for lifts that involve multiple cranes and for lifts that involve picking within the radius of powerlines.

### The lifting lugs on the spreader beam are 17 feet apart. The pick is 10,000 pounds.What sling length (L2) would you need to obtain 60 degrees? How high (H1) would that make the rigging above the spreader beam? How much tension (T) in each sling?

• A.

"Sling length = 17 feet, height = 14.72 feet, tension in each sling = 2,900 pounds"

• B.

"Sling length = 14.72 feet, height = 17 feet, tension in each sling = 5,800 pounds"

• C.

"Sling length = 17 feet, height = 14.72 feet, tension in each sling = 5,800 pounds"

• D.

"Sling length = 14.72 feet, height = 17 feet, tension in each sling = 5,800 pounds"

C. "Sling length = 17 feet, height = 14.72 feet, tension in each sling = 5,800 pounds"
Explanation
L1 = 17 feet x 1.0 = 17 feet long. 17 feet x 0.866 = 14.72 feet high, 10,000 pounds x 0,58 = 5,800 pounds tension.

### After filling out a lift plan for a pick with a rough terrain mobile hydraulic crane, you find that the weight of the upcoming pick is 87% of the cranes hoisting capacity.  What type of lift plan will be required prior to the work?

• A.

Crane lift plan

• B.

General Lift Plan

• C.

Critical lift plan

• D.

No lift Plan

C. Critical lift plan
Explanation
A critical lift plan will be required prior to the work because the weight of the upcoming pick is 87% of the crane's hoisting capacity. This indicates that the lift is close to or exceeding the crane's maximum capacity, making it a critical lift that requires additional planning and precautions to ensure safety. A critical lift plan involves a more detailed analysis of the lift, including factors such as load weight, load stability, crane stability, rigging requirements, and potential hazards. This plan helps to mitigate risks and ensure that the lift is carried out safely.

### Which hitch type provides the most capacity for a 1" wire rope sling?

• A.

Straight pull

• B.

Choker hitch

• C.

• D.

Two part bridal sling

Explanation
A basket hitch provides the most capacity for a 1" wire rope sling. In a basket hitch, the sling is passed under the load and the ends are brought up and crossed over the load, forming a basket shape. This distributes the load evenly across the sling, maximizing its capacity. The other hitch types mentioned, such as straight pull, choker hitch, and two-part bridal sling, do not provide the same level of load distribution and capacity as a basket hitch.

### Which of the following conditions would require a wire rope sling to be taken out of service?  Check all that apply.

• A.

Evidence of heat damage

• B.

Severe corrosion or pitting of the wires

• C.

10 randomly distributed broken wires in one rope lay or 5 broken wires in one strand in one rope lay

• D.

A rope has been sitting in a dry Connex for 2 months

• E.

Missing or illegible tags

A. Evidence of heat damage
B. Severe corrosion or pitting of the wires
C. 10 randomly distributed broken wires in one rope lay or 5 broken wires in one strand in one rope lay
E. Missing or illegible tags
Explanation
A wire rope sling would need to be taken out of service if there is evidence of heat damage, severe corrosion or pitting of the wires, 10 randomly distributed broken wires in one rope lay or 5 broken wires in one strand in one rope lay, or if there are missing or illegible tags.

### Which of the following conditions would require a synthetic sling to be taken out of service?  Check all that apply.

• A.

Melted or charred

• B.

Broken or worn stitches

• C.

Tag missing or is illegible

• D.

Ultraviolet sunlight damage

• E.

Discoloration

A. Melted or charred
B. Broken or worn stitches
C. Tag missing or is illegible
D. Ultraviolet sunlight damage
Explanation
A synthetic sling would need to be taken out of service if it is melted or charred, has broken or worn stitches, has a missing or illegible tag, or has ultraviolet sunlight damage. Discoloration alone may not necessarily require the sling to be taken out of service, as it may not affect the sling's structural integrity.

### How many tons can a 3/8" dia. plowsteel wire rope carry if the object is rigged using a choker hitch?

• A.

4

• B.

2.4

• C.

1.6

• D.

0.92

• E.

0.68

D. 0.92
Explanation
The given answer of 0.92 is the correct answer because it is the maximum weight in tons that a 3/8" dia. plowsteel wire rope can carry when rigged using a choker hitch. The choker hitch is a type of rigging that involves wrapping the wire rope around the object and then passing the end of the rope through the wire rope itself, creating a loop. This method provides a secure grip on the object and allows for a higher weight capacity compared to other types of hitches.
