Tower Crane Parts
Several of the most remarkable structures throughout the globe are built utilizing cranes. The newer cranes are utilized in order to reach higher heights. Tower cranes offer the means to transport and lift tools, building parts and supplies around a construction location. There are several different parts which assemble a tower crane when they are put together. Putting a tower crane together uses various pieces of construction equipment.

The tower crane base is typically made from a steel unit. The base of the unit connects to a custom pad made of concrete. This type of set-up provides the structure with stability. Overall, the construction should be engineered and constructed well so as to operate at optimum safety.

The mast of the tower crane provides height to the machinery. The mast is made of connected steel sections. The amount of sections determines the height of the crane. Usually, a tower crane has a design which allows the mast to grow during construction by adding further sections as the building process continues. This way the crane's height could be specified, ensuring it has sufficient height to perform the required work efficiently and safely.

Slewing Unit/Top Climber
Over the mast is the slewing unit. It houses the motor and machines which allows the crane to rotate. A top climber is the piece of machinery that enables the mast to grow. The top climber sits just beneath the slewing unit. Hydraulic rams inside the top climber enable the slewing unit to be disconnected from the mast by raising it higher.

The term "boom", refers to the working arm of a tower crane. The boom is made up of separate steel parts which are connected together, extending out from the top of the slewing unit and parallel to the ground. There is a trolley connected to the bottom that can extend the length of the boom. This particular trolley holds the hoisting mechanism.
