Crane

The coco park, the park has being in the process of construction for over a year now. coco park will be one of the parks to have the most modern structure in the area, a lot of heavy machines are being use in the construction, a least two cranes are being use, the workers had to make sure they did the right  overhead cranes  before stating this process a yer ago.

A crane is a tower or derrick that is equipped with cables and pulleys that are used to lift and lower material. They are commonly used in the construction industry and in the manufacturing of heavy equipment. The top 7 types of construction cranes are normally temporary structures, either fixed to the ground or mounted on a custom built vehicle.

They can either be controlled from an operator in a cab that travels along with the crane, by a push button pendant control station, or by radio type controls.

As with all things in construction, the construction crane operator is ultimately responsible for the safety of the site, the rigging crews and the working crane.

The Different Types Of Cranes Used In Construction

MOBILE CRANES

Mobile Cranes are the most standard and versatile type of crane used in construction today. The mobile hydraulic crane consists of a steel truss or telescopic boom mounted on a mobile platform, which could be a rail, wheeled, or even on a cat truck. The boom is hinged at the bottom and can be either raised or lowered by cables or hydraulic cylinders.

What makes this construction crane so versatile is it’s footprint and mobility. In construction situations, it can sometimes be difficult to get close to where you need to hoist the materials. Moving a crane into a position that allows it to lift the material with the correct crane capacity is effected by the footprint of the crane. The foot print is the area required to have the crane set up it’s outriggers into position that allows it to hoist the material while inside the crane chart requirements.
