Mast Crane-Derrick Crane

( 2 )

Much like a crane, a Derrick Crane is used for moving materials vertically and horizontally in a stone quarry, consisting of a hoisting mechanism and pulleys or sheaves to create a mechanical advantage to lift large and heavy stone block loads. Unlike a usual crane, a Derrick Crane usually has a vertical stationary mast extending from a base and a moveable boom. At Stonecontact.com, you can find the most suitable cranes for the geological structure of your quarry, the type of material you will extract, and you can contact the manufacturers directly.

All tower cranes consist of the same basic parts: The base is bolted to a large concrete pad that supports the crane. The base connects to the mast (or tower), which gives the tower crane its height.

Cranes are acceptably safer to operate because of their simplicity, where derrick rigs can be overly complicated in rigging and operation. Cranes can easily service two blocks holding area at quarry in the fore and aft direction because of their 360° slew ability.
