Parts of a Tower Crane
Some of the most wonderful structures throughout the globe are made using cranes. The newer cranes are utilized in order to reach higher heights. Tower cranes offer the way to move and raise building parts, materials and tools all around a construction site. There are a few different parts that assemble a tower crane when they are put together. Putting a tower crane together uses various pieces of construction equipment.

Base
Typically, the tower crane base is made from a steel unit. The base is attached to a concrete pad that is custom-designed. This set-up gives the structure stability. Overall, the construction should be well engineered and built so as to operate at optimum safety.

Mast
The mast of the tower crane provides height to the equipment. 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 further parts as the building process goes on. This way the height of the crane can be specified, making certain that it has sufficient height to carry out the needed work efficiently and safely.

Slewing Unit/Top Climber
A slewing unit is situated at the top of the mast. This unit houses the machines and the motor which allows the crane to rotate. A top climber is the piece of machine which enables the mast to grow. The top climber is situated just underneath the slewing unit. Hydraulic rams in the top climber allow the slewing unit to be detached from the mast by raising it higher.

Boom
"Boom" is a term which particularly refers to the working arm of a tower crane. The boom is made of steel parts connected together, which extend out from the top of the slewing unit, parallel to the ground. There is a trolley attached to the bottom that could run the length of the boom. This particular trolley holds the hoisting mechanism.
