A slewing mobile crane means a mobile crane incorporating a boom jib that is capable of being slewed. This excludes front end loader, backhoe, excavator and other earthmoving equipment when configured for crane operation.
There are four classes of slewing mobile cranes each with a different capacity:
- up to 20 tonnes (C2) – incorporating CN & CV classes
- up to 60 tonnes (C6) – incorporating C2, CN & CV classes
- up to 100 tonnes (C1) – incorporating C6, C2, CN & CV classes
- over 100 tonnes capacity (C0) – incorporating C1, C6, C2, CN & CV classes
If a slewing telehandler is fitted with a boom and/or jib with a hoist rope and/or hook block, a C2, C6, C1 or C0 high risk work licence is required, dependent on the telehandler’s rated capacity.
