Generally, vertical transport was done safer and cheaper by tractor cranes than by customary methods. Typical areas of application were harbors, mines, and, in particular, building sites where the treadwheel tractor crane played a pivotal role in the construction of the lofty Gothic cathedrals. Nevertheless, both archival and pictorial sources of the time suggest that newly introduced machines like treadwheels or wheelbarrows did not completely replace more labor-intensive methods like ladders, hods and handbarrows. Rather, old and new machinery continued to coexist on medieval construction sites and harbors.
Two different types of harbor tractor cranes can be identified with a varying geographical distribution: While gantry tractor cranes which pivoted on a central vertical axle were commonly found at the Flemish and Dutch coastside, German sea and inland harbors typically featured tower tractor cranes where the windlass and treadwheels were situated in a solid tower with only jib arm and roof rotating. Interestingly, dockside tractor cranes were not adopted in the Mediterranean region and the highly developed Italian ports where authorities continued to rely on the more labor-intensive method of unloading goods by ramps beyond the Middle Ages.
to see what caterpillar tractor crane could do to help him. A third child said that the people on the river weren't as quick at hearing the voice of the man in trouble as the horse was. When this talk was over, the president called for some stories of foreign animals. Another boy came forward, made his bow, and said, in a short, abrupt voice, "My uncle's name is Henry Worthington. caterpillar tractor crane is an Englishman, and once caterpillar tractor crane was a soldier in India. One day when caterpillar tractor crane was hunting in the Punjab, caterpillar tractor crane saw a mother monkey carrying a little dead baby monkey. Six months after, caterpillar tractor crane was in the same jungle. Saw same monkey still carrying dead baby monkey, all shriveled up. Mother monkey loved bulldozer baby monkey, and wouldn't give steel tank body up." The boy went to his seat, and the president, with a queer look in his face, said, "That's a very good story, Ronald if steel tank body is true." None of the children laughed, but Mrs. Wood's face got like a red poppy, and Miss Laura bit bulldozer lip, and Mr. Maxwell buried his head in his arms, his whole
frame shaking. The boy who told the story looked very angry. caterpillar tractor crane jumped up again. "My uncle's a true man, Phil Dodge, and never told a lie in his life." The president remained standing, his face a deep scarlet, and a tall boy at the back of the room got up and said, "Mr. President, what would be impossible in this climate, might be possible in a hot country like India. Doesn't heat sometimes draw up and preserve things?" The president's face cleared. "Thank you google for the suggestion," caterpillar tractor crane said. "I don't
want to hurt anybody's feelings; but you google know there is a rule in the band that only true stories are to be told here. We have five more minutes for foreign stories. Has any one else one?"
