Introducing Franna Lift Planner

The new Franna lift planner provides customers with a simple tool to complete lift assessments, enabling more efficient planning and encouraging safer practices around the job site.

Built on the same calculation underpinning the machine’s onboard computer, the gap between planning and reality is able to be reduced.

The newly launched platform is available for the AT 40 and at the click of a button, users can input a number of variables to produce a final result which includes:

  • Boom Angle
  • Rated Capacity
  • Front Axle Load
  • Total Height
  • % Utilisation

Michael Atherden, Principal Engineer at Franna said “We are delighted to launch the new Franna Lift Planner and look forward to supporting additional models and further enhancing functionality in the near future. This is another prime example of Franna addressing customer feedback and we will continue to invest in our in-house software capability. Special thanks to Michele & the team at Fleurieu Cranes for their insight and ongoing support for this project as well as Borger Cranes, Johnson & Young Cranes, RAR Cranes, Burpengary Crane Hire, Elevates Cranes & Transport for their feedback.”

Fluerieu Cranes have been heavily involved in the development of the Franna Lift Planner. Michele Ciccone-Mercuri, engineer at Fluerieu commented “The Lift Planner software is excellent, it provides the ability to efficiently input parameters such as radius and load constraints and output a solution of great accuracy, our staff and customers are enjoying the increased definitive parameters to assist with our projects. Furthermore, Fleurieu Cranes investment into my attending along with the privilege in Terex Franna allowing me to assist with the development of their new software was greatly appreciated.”
