Abstract : The user evaluation of a commercial self-propelled hydraulic crane was conducted by MASSTER from 28 Oct 73 to 10 Jun 74 to determine if the crane was operationally acceptable or needed modification to perform aircraft maintenance. After the test began, production of the crane was terminated. Testing was continued to determine characteristics that might be desirable in a successor crane. The crane, with a 10,000-pound capacity winch, was acceptable for aircraft maintenance. A few human factors engineering changes are recommended. Any successor crane should be tested to determine its ability to perform aviation maintenance. (Author)
