From the construction of the pyramids through today, people have endeavored to build great things. Many feats have been achieved because of drive and determination, but there have always been risks associated with performing these tasks. Fortunately, tools have evolved to become smarter, right-toolsafer and more efficient because of discoveries in metal alloys and good, practical engineering. One smart tool with universal applications that is being used in construction, agriculture, transportation, aeronautical, marine and the military is the Spitzlift lightweight and portable crane. Handling loads less than 1,000 pounds, thousands of Spitzlift cranes are used every day. Weighing 30 pounds, the crane can lift more than 30 times its own weight.
