Project Description

Truck Hoists

Kentucky & Ohio, United States
Client:

McCormick Equipment Co.

Service:
  • Assessment & Load Rating
Industry:
  • Industrial & Manufacturing

Frost Engineering & Consulting carried out a structural load analysis of existing typical and atypical truck hoist boom systems to determine the acceptable service loads for the standard truck-mounted hoist system used to install truck deck levelers at industrial and distribution facilities. Frost staff relied upon drawings and specifications provided by the client, as well as field measurements taken at three different sites: Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio as well as Louisville, Kentucky. Frost provided load ratings in graphical form for both the existing conditions and proposed enhanced conditions. As part of its technical report, Frost recommended specific enhancements to structural and mechanical systems, as well as maintenance and operations practices regarding OSHA requirements pertaining to truck-mounted hoists.
