March 24, 2016NCCCO General TestBarb Fullman Welcome to your NCCCO General Test Practice Test. Take the test and find out how well prepared you are!1) According to OSHA, when traveling a crane at a jobsite with no load under or near power lines, a spotter is required if any part of the crane will get closer than? 4 feet 6 feet 10 feet 20 feet2) When picking on rubber, what happens? Radius decreases Boom angle increases The tires will be overloaded Boom angle decreases3) When is it acceptable for an operator to leave the cab of a crane with a load suspended? It is never acceptable Barricades or caution lines, and notices, are erected to prevent all employees from entering the fall zone and where the weight of the working gear is negligible relative to the lifting capacity and is suspended over an area other than an entrance or exit. When the load is to be held suspended for a period of a time exceeding normal lifting operations When the operator decides that it is safe.4) According to OSHA and ASME, what is the minimum amount of wraps that must remain on a grooved or smooth hoist or boom hoist drum? 2 3 Depends on D/d diameter Depends on what type of construction the wire rope is.5) When rigging 2 slings into a shackle… The shackle body must contact the hook. Pin must be placed in the hook. The sling angle must be below 90 degrees. The bowl of the shackle must be placed in the hook.6) What is the purpose of the holding valve on an outrigger jack cylinder? It is the location that the float pins on. It locks the hydraulic oil in the cylinder in the event a hose rupture. It retains the cylinder in the beam. It is a manually operated valve that the operator can use to extend the outrigger.7) What type of slings should you use when assembling or disassembling a crane? Wire Rope Synthetic Chain Any type as long as it is within the rated capacity.8) OSHA and ASME regulations require any part of the crane to be how far from a 230kV power line? 10 feet 20 feet 25 feet 30 feet9) According to ASME, crawler brakes or lock must be able to… engage when you return a control lever to neutral. apply when you are on a 10% slope or steeper automatically. hold a crane with all of the counter weight and all of the load on a 10% slope. apply in the event of loss of operating pressure or power.10) What functions does an LMI or anti-two block stop when a telescoping crane is overloaded or is approaching a two-block condition? Hoist, boom down and telescope out. Hoist, boom up and telescope out. Hoist and boom lower. Hoist.11) When doing two crane picks, what could happen when one crane operator sets their end down before the other crane operator? Nothing will happen. One crane could become side loaded. Backwards stability could become an issue on the unloaded crane. The load could increase on the crane still holding the load.12) In what percentage of level must a crane be in to maintain the rated capacities listed in the load chart? 1% 2% 3% 4%13) With a crane set up out of level, what configuration would have the most effect on the capacity? Long boom, low angle. Short boom, low angle. High boom, high angle. High boom, low angle.14) Using the diagram to the right, what does this reference? Range diagram Capacity chart Jib angle chart Quadrants of operation chart15) What is this signal? Swing left boom down Travel one track Travel Boom up16) Nylon slings shall not be used where fumes, vapors, sprays, mist, or liquids and… acids or phenolics are present. caustics are present. calcium are present. oil are present.17) You are operating a crane with a manual boom tip extended with the powered main boom partially retracted. What procedure would you use to find the gross capacity? You would refer to the manual section extended chart and use the main boom angle to find the capacity. You would refer to the powered main boom chart, using the actual length that you have the boom extended to and find the capacity based on the actual radius. You would refer to the manual section extended chart and use the actual radius to find the capacity. You would refer to the powered main boom chart and use the actual length that you have the boom extended to and find the capacity by using the boom angle.18) ASME B30.5 states what must be labeled on a headache ball or hook block? The manufacturer’s model number and serial number. The block/ball capacity. The block/ball weight. The block/ball weight and capacity.19) What is this signal? Boom down. Use the main hoist. Boom up and hoist down. Use the whip line or auxiliary hoist.20) What is the approved procedure when the truck crane you are operating does not have a front bumper stabilizer? Refer to the areas of operation diagram because most manufacturer’s do not permit operation over front quadrant. Crib under the bumper. You can swing towards the front but stop when the crane starts to feel “light.” Block under the tires.21) When installing a wedge socket on rotation-resistant wire rope, how long does the dead end tail need to be? 6 inches. 20 rope diameters but not less than 6 inches. 6 rope diameters but not less than 6 inches. You cannot use wedge sockets with IWRC wire rope.22) You are operating a crane with a lattice extension and a jib erected with the main boom fully extended, making the pick off the lattice extension. What procedure would you use to calculate the net capacity? Deduct the effective weight of the lattice extension and the jib. Deduct the actual weight of the jib. Deduct the actual weight of the jib and the effective weight of the lattice extension. Deduct the effective weight of the jib.23) What is the ASME standard for personnel platforms? B30.5 B30.3 B30.23 B30.1024) Referencing the illustration below, which assembly is correct? A B C D25) Define two blocking. When a hook block is reeved with more than 2 parts of line. When you have a block and ball reeved over the boom tip. When a ball or hook block is pulled into the boom tip or jib tip. When a ball or hook block is pulled into the tip sheaves.Please let us know you're not a robot by typing in the digits below!Please fill out your contact information so you can get your results sent to your email!
