The Manual version has identical contents to the Handbook, but varies in that it has comprehensive questions at the end of each section and comes with a separate answer book. This format is excellent for classroom training or self study. This book is commonly referred to as the "best" crane and rigging available in North America. It is used for reference and training programs offered by technical colleges, companies, trade unions, and various government institutions and departments. Data includes: wire rope and inspection; rigging hardware; slings and safe working loads; chain data; mobile crane set-up, stability, tandem lift examples, operation tips; EOT crane operation, safety, maintenance; tower crane set-up and safety; boom truck safety.

IPT's Crane and Rigging Handbook and Training Manual are essential resources for anyone who moves heavy loads. Referred to by many as the best crane and rigging book in North America, this indispensable publication expertly explains the rigging process for classroom instruction or workplace reference. New sections include pre-lift planning, materials handling, aerial platforms and barge, ship and offshore cranes.
