Cranes can be transported to the construction site or other worksite by flatbed truck or trailer. See manufacturer recommendations for how to transport safely, as guidelines may vary depending on the size and weight of the crane.
Cranes comprise a hoist, boom, counterweight, turntable and outriggers. An electric motor in the cab powers the crane. The operator controls the crane's main drive winch from the cab. Indicators in the cab tell the operator how many feet of wire rope are left on both sides of the crane's main hoist. Additional crane parts include a turntable for rotating cranes, cradles and outriggers for gantry cranes.
