Title: SECUREMENT FOR CRAWLER CRANES AND SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR USE OF SAME
Abstract:
A securement for crawler cranes and system and method for use of the same are disclosed. In one embodiment of the system (10), a pair of structural securements (12, 14) are spaced at approximately a track-distance apart with respect to the crawler crane (16) and coupled together by multiple transverse support members (40, 42, 44). When the crawler crane (16) is driven onto the structural securements (12, 14) and fastened thereto, the tipping fulcrum of the crawler crane (16) is shifted, thereby requiring a greater tipping force to tip and adding stability during high wind events.
