English term or phrase:TANDEM-LIFT DUAL-HOIST CRANES
I know this is a kind of crane (guindaste) but I have been searching since yesterday and cannot find the equivalent in Portuguese.
o termo tandem, em vários documentos em lingua protugues (BR), não foi traduzido
Tandem is a Latin adverb meaning "at length" or "finally". In English, the term was originally used for two or more draft horses harnessed one behind another as opposed to side-by-side. By extension the term now refers to any team (of machines, animals or people) working together one behind another.
