Modern cranes hoist enormous loads high above the nation's construction sites, dockyards, and skylines. Each chapter features a specific type of crane: truck- and track-mounted lattice varieties, wheel-mounted hydraulic booms, stationary tower cranes, and more. Spectacular action photos include in-the-cab shots and images detailing crane design. Explanations of how these seemingly awkward machines deftly perform their amazing feats are accompanied by discussions of special technical features and on-the-job applications.
