Special Cranes.



We are often called upon to submit sketches and prices on special cranes to meet
various peculiar conditions and requirements.

Our experience in designing such cranes has been varied and extensive, and we are
always ready to submit designs and prices on this class of work.

We show herewith a few special cranes recently constructed.

It is absolutely necessary, when asking for prices, etc., to give us full and complete
information, and sketch, so that we may fully understand the problem.

As such inquiries require considerable time and thought on our part, we cannot take
them up unless these conditions are fully complied with.

The Brown Hoisting Machinery Company, Incorporated.

Works: CLEVELAND, OHIO, U. S. A.

Besides being Crane builders, as shown in this catalog, we are designers and manufac-
turers of complete plants for the rapid and economical handling of material of any kind, under
any condition, in bulk or otherwise.

Our standard machinery embraces:

COAL HANDLING MACHINERY. We have several hundred of our standard machines in operation, and at
many points handle the ENTIRE TRAFFIC of the largest transportation lines, WHICH NO OTHER CONCERN
MANUFACTURING COAL HANDLING MACHINERY CAN TRUTHFULLY SAY. Our machinery is especially
designed to handle coal without breakage.

Our Car Dumping Machine will dump, put into vessels, and trim 5,000 tons of coal in ten hours without breakage.

ORE HANDLING MACHINERY. Above is equally true of our Standard Ore Handling Machinery, except we
have ore handling plants in operation taking 7,000 tons out of vessels and loading same on cars or on stock piles in ten
hours. We handle the entire ore traffic of many transportation lines. Besides, we have designed and built the only suc-
cessful machines for storing and re-handling iron ore by power.

TUBS AND BUCKETS. We manufacture Automatic Tubs, Buckets and Skips of steel, with double renewable
linings, for coal, ore, etc., that will outlast ten ordinary tubs. Either bail, side, or back latch dump. Also, self filling
single rope Clam Shell Grab Buckets, for coal, sand, etc.

CABLEWAYS. With fixed or movable piers. We designed and built the first movable pier cableways ever con-
.structed in this countr}^

SEWER MACHINES. Two sizes. One having tubs of 32 cubic feet capacity, and the other having tubs of
16 cubic feet capacity.

FURNACE HOISTS AND STOCK DISTRIBUTER. For the automatic charging of Blast Furnaces, doing
away entirely with top fillers, etc.

GRIP SHEAVE. BROWN PATENT. Automatically grips the rope and prevents slipping.

Some important plants designed and built by us include :

COAL AND ORE HANDLING PLANTS FOR THE FOLLOWING COMPANIES:
Pennsylvania; Lake Shore; Lehigh Valley; Cleveland, Lorain & Wheeling; Columbus, Hock-
ing Valley & Toledo; Toledo & Ohio Central; Wheeling & Lake Erie: Buffalo, Rochester &
Pittsburg ; Pittsburg, Bessemer & Lake Erie ; Philadelphia & Reading, and other railroads.

Also, Carnegie Steel Co; Illinois Steel Co; Tonawanda Iron & Steel Co.; Bethlehem
Steel Co. ; Coxe Bros. & Co. ; Fried. Krupp, and many other concerns in this country
and Europe.

CANTILEVER CRANES ON CHICAGO DRAINAGE CANAL. Eleven of our Bal-
anced Cantilever Cranes were in use on the Chicago Main Drainage Canal handling rock from
cut to bank, and established the world's record for such work as to quantity handled and cost of
same, and no other machines of any kind, on this work or elsewhere, have ever approached
these records. The performance of these machines was such as to attract the attention of
engineers and engineering societies from all over the world.

COALING STATIONS FOR THE UNITED STATES NAVY. Six Coaling Stations,
as follows: Dry Tortugas, Florida (two stations); Key West, Florida (two stations); New
London, Connecticut (one station); Mare Island, California (one station).

FLOATING CRANE FOR NEW YORK NAVY YARD. Of lOO tons lifting capacity,
built entirely of steel. Total weight, over 1,200 tons. For handling guns and turrets to and
from battleships, etc.
