We had a gas-mechanical Burro crane for years, and when booming left or right, it was smooth as silk in one direction vs. grabbing so hard you would think the boom would snap off in the other. I suspect this was due to how each clutch band tightened around its drum, going with the flow in one direction, and against it in the other. Might have something to do with it, giving the operator a smoother ride.
