How to calculate the metre tonne rating of your Vehicle loading crane?

Vehicle loading cranes are rated in metre tonnes. This tends to cause some confusion amongst users. It is particularly important to understand the size requirements of your crane, because licensing requirements in Australia for vehicle loading cranes is determined by the rated capacity of the vehicle loading crane.

Vehicle loading cranes rated at 10 metre tonnes or above require a CV license to operate them.


Q: So how is this rating determined?

A: To calculate the metre tonne rating of your crane, you need to:

1. Refer to your crane’s load chart.

2. Determine from the load chart the MAXIMUM LOAD your crane can lift.

3. Determine the MAXIMUM RADIUS it can lift the MAXIMUM LOAD.

4. Multiply together these 2 numbers (Metres X Tonnes)

5. If the answer is equal to or greater than 10, then you require a license to operate your Vehicle Loading Crane.


Example: Look at the load chart below from a knuckle boom crane.

Therefore: 3.1 metres x 5.2 tonne = 16.12 metre tonnes

This crane requires a HRW license to operate it.
