Fun Facts about the Crane

  • The tower crane was installed in early March to lift and move plant and materials on and off the new multi-storey Clinical Services building.
  • The crane is made up of six key components; the mast / tower, a boom, trolley, counterweight, load lines and the operator’s cabin.
  • The crane is able to carry a maximum load of up to 10 tonnes and will be used to carry pallets of building materials, framing, steel, cladding, roof sheeting and lifts onto the new structure, as well as the removal of excess materials and waste to the ground.
  • Up to six people are involved in safely operating the crane, including the operator and the support crew which is made up of spotters, radio communications and dogmen.
  • What is a dogman? The person who is responsible for helping direct the crane operator in the movement of loads.
  • The crane will be onsite at the Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment for the next 12 months.
