You should look at Article 610 in the National Electrical Code. If you use a search engine search for cranes and hoists.

That sounds like a good topic for this forum!
I'll put this in the list of items to create, then post it when finished.
Sorry to say that it will not be really soon, so look for it around mid August [unless something changes with my work schedules].

Not sure of what URLs to link here, but try the ECN home page - there's most likely a few links that you can use.
There's also a cool link site [], which should have at least a few direct links to that information - or at least 50 indirect links.

I know you want to get any and all info regarding Cranes, but do you want Electric only Cranes, or ones that employ a Prime Mover [such as Diesil-Electric]?

We should start this off as a simple thread with simple info posted, then work up to more complex stuff. That way everyone can participate!
