What is meant by crane ‘Lift Moment’?

Important to know when searching for a truck with crane is understanding the lift capability.

The term ‘lift moment’ is the load capacity of the knuckle boom crane in either tonne-metres (t/m) or foot-pounds (ft.lbs.). For example, if you need a truck crane to lift 2000 lbs. at a distance of 10 feet, then your crane must be rated at (or have a lift moment of) 2000 lbs @10 feet, or 20,000 foot-pounds.
