Table 3-1. Troubleshooting - CONT.
Test or Inspection
HOIST DOES NOT SPOOL CABLE PROPERLY (CONT).
Wire rope can become frayed or contain broken wires. Wear heavy leather-palmed work
gloves when handling wire rope. Frayed or broken wires can injure hands.
Never let moving wire rope slide through hands, even when wearing gloves. A broken wire
could cut through glove and cut hand.
Step 4. Inspect the cable (4) remaining on the hoist drum (3) for any looseness or gaps between wraps.
If gaps exist, lower crane boom (1) to gain access to hoist drum. Using a hammer, gently tap
the cable wraps back into close contact.
If possible, perform Step 5 without changing the boom length or angle. If necessary,
reconfigure the crane as little as possible to attach the load. The load is attached only
for the purpose of providing weight to straighten the cable while respooling.
Step 5. Attach a load (6), not exceeding 6500 lbs (2948.4 kg), to crane. Position the load where crane
boom (1) can be extended to maximum length and raised to maximum angle. Extend the boom
to maximum length and raise to maximum angle.
