Tower Crane Parts
Tower cranes allow the construction industry to build various wonderful structures. These cranes have been utilized to reach ever-increasing heights. Tower cranes offer the means to lift and move tools, building parts and supplies around a construction location. There are a few different parts that assemble a tower crane once they are put together. Putting a tower crane together uses various pieces of construction equipment.

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

Mast
The mast of the tower crane provides height to the machine. The mast is made of connected steel sections. The amount of sections determines the crane's height. Usually, a tower crane has a design which enables the mast to grow during construction by adding more parts as the building process goes on. This way the height of the crane could be specified, making sure that it has enough height to safely and efficiently carry out the required work.

Slewing Unit/Top Climber
A slewing unit is situated above the mast. This unit houses the machines and the motor that allows the crane to rotate. A top climber is the piece of machinery that enables the mast to grow. The top climber is located just below the slewing unit. Hydraulic rams inside the top climber enable the slewing unit to be detached from the mast by raising it higher.

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