Continuous slewing increases productivity, as operators can move the crane where needed, in a full circle and beyond.
Continuous slewing makes lifting easier and safer, since operators can choose the best path for lifting, while avoiding unnecessary and potentially unsafe stops and backtracking.
HIAB cranes with continuous slewing are specifically built for high precision at long outreach (long-boom applications) or for more lifting power close to the truck (short-boom applications).
In addition, special solutions are available ex-stock, such as FDA-compliant slewing ring bearings (sliding parts made of iglidur A180) and slewing rings that are extremely chemical-resistant and can be used at up to 180[degrees]C (using the iglidur H1 bearing material).

Acceleration and deceleration rates for slewing are user adjustable.
A feature that took some getting used to was SkySensor's variable-speed slewing.
When slewing at high speed they were not obtrusively noisy, falling between a Meade LX200 (loud) and a Celestron Ultima 2000 (quiet).
