t ballast for counterjib
Explanation:
la volata di una gru è la ampiezza totale dei bracci (span)
o anche uno dei bracci, da quello che mi sembra di capire.
Le zavorre possono essere di diversi tipi. Questa si mette sul braccio posteriore (counterjib) a compensare i carichi.

Asker: thanks, and how would you translate "zavorra di volata piana"? "Flat ballast for counterjib"? Would that make sense?
