# Convert Measurements from Metric to Imperial

Currently working on a sell sheet for a client and I have measurements that need to be converted from metric to imperial. Conversions must comply with the rules below.

Word document with final conversions is fine, but each conversion must be accompany original measurements for reference. For Example

Max Lifting Height = 28.5' (8.7m)

Document is attached for reference.

RULE A )

In case of RTL chart it is displayed in feet to the decimal point and pounds to 10 lb. increments. (maybe 5lb. increments with new design ML) So specifications brochure data related to RTL chart should be in feet to decimal, (NOT feet and inches). This makes a clean transfer and uniformity between switching between literature and the actual crane use, also common accepted practice in N.A.

Any rounding off should be rounded down unless it is very-very -very close to rounding up number.

Example: working radius is 12.5’, so print 12.5’ (not 12’6”).

Example: Rated load is converted from kg and you arrive at 1,207 lb. Make sure you round down to 1,205 lb., do not round up to 1,210lb.

This rule is based on the fact you never want to suggest or print something about the RTL chart that is not achievable or more amount than the actual ability of the crane.

RULE B)

In case of machine dimensions we think, use and write in feet and inches. So display in feet and inches. example: 12.5’ is written 12’6” for machine dimensions. Any rounding off should be rounded up unless it is very-very -very close to rounding down number. example: After converting from mm you get 12.58’, please use 12’7”.

This rule is based on the fact that we never want to suggest or write the machine is smaller than it actually is. A customer cannot afford to get the machine to a job site and find out it will not fit into a location or door because the literature underestimated its size.

For 9 years here now is the dimension “brakes” MUSA use for converting from feet in decimals to feet/inches.

1” = .083’

2” =.166’

3” =.25’

4”=.33’

5”= .42’

6”=.50’

7”=.58’

8”=.66’

9”=.75’

10”=.83’

11”=.91’

12=.99’

example: 3,095 mm = 10.15’ so I round up 10.16’ , and print/use 10’ 2”
