For example, the operator can use the boom hoist to raise or lower the boom, while using the load line to lift or lower the load. The operator can also use the outrigger and telescoping boom to extend the reach of the crane and stabilize it while lifting heavy loads. The counterweight is used to balance the weight of the load. The operator’s cab is where the crane operator sits. Finally, the outrigger and telescoping boom are used to stabilize the crane.

In summary, the different parts of a crane work together to lift and move heavy loads. The operator uses a combination of controls to move the different parts of the crane and maneuver the load.
