Tower Crane Parts
Some of the most amazing structures throughout the globe are built using cranes. The newer cranes are designed in order to reach higher heights. Tower cranes offer the way to transport and lift building parts, materials and tools around a construction site. There are various parts that assemble a tower crane when they are put together. Putting a tower crane together uses various pieces of construction equipment.

The base of a tower crane is normally made from a steel unit. The units' base attaches to a custom pad made of concrete. This set-up provides the structure with stability. Overall, the construction should be well engineered and built in order to operate at optimum safety.

The mast on the tower crane provides the equipment with its overall height. The mast is constructed out of individual steel sections which are connected together. The amount of sections determines the crane's height. Typically, a tower crane has a design that enables the mast to grow during construction by adding further parts as the building process goes on. This way the crane's height could be specified, ensuring it has sufficient height to safely and efficiently perform the required work.

Slewing Unit/Top Climber
At the top of the mast is the slewing unit. It houses the motor and machines which enables the crane to rotate. A top climber is the piece of machine that enables the mast to grow. The top climber sits just below the slewing unit. Hydraulic rams inside the top climber allow the slewing unit to be detached from the mast by raising it higher.

"Boom" is a term which specifically refers to the tower crane's working arm. The boom is made of steel sections connected together, that extend out from the top of the slewing unit, parallel to the ground. There is a trolley connected to the base which could run the length of the boom. This trolley holds the hoisting device.
