Foldable Engine Crane

  1. Sep 26, 2006 #1
    I want to build a foldable engine crane that can lift 2 ton of load. Can anyone tell me how to design it and draw a free body diagram complete with formula to determine loads at each point.

    This looks like homework. How far did you get with the FBD and calculations?
