Italian term or phrase: braccio steso
si tratta di una delle possibili posizioni del braccio di una gru edile.

Inizialmente avevo tradotto con "horizontal jib", dopo varie ricerche in rete, ma poi nel mio testo si trova anche "braccio impennato I steso", "braccio impennato II steso" (impennato I e II sono due posizioni diverse).

Quindi a questo punto il braccio non può più essere orizzontale. Supposizione confermata anche dai tecnici consultati :(

Non riesco a trovare un equivalente che possa andare bene...
