Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Crane assembly
German term or phrase: Einhängeverschubwagen
This is the name of a part in the assembly for attaching a hub crane to a wind turbine. a google search for the entire term gets zero hits, but I have a diagram, and it looks like a t-shaped bracket with a few holes in it, suspended from the upper rail and attached to the end with a string. It looks like it can slide along the rail that it's hanging from. So, some kind of sliding, hanging thing... any ideas?

suspended infeed trolley
Explanation:
Probably this object is so new that it does not have a name.
Trolley is used for moving heavy things, on rails, usually called Laufkatze in the context of cranes:
Einhänge = suspended, as in Hängekatze = suspended trolley, see p.74 in Routledge German Dictionary of Construction) https://books.google.no/books?id=NZPhAQAAQBAJ&pg=PA74&lpg=PA...

"Vorschub" is about gradually feeding things into a machine. E.g. infeed table for Vorschubtisch. Vorschubwagen is used to feed logs into sawing machines, and is in this context called "traveller". One also sees "infeed carriers" for feeding unwieldy objects into a machine. These usually roll on wheels on the ground.

So either suspended infeed trolley or suspended infeed carrier describes the function.
