Explanation: cableway crane
The skyline crane is a cable system but differs from all other cableways in that it is a travelling crane and can pick up loads directly from the ground at any point along the cableway. It can also haul in logs from a limited distance on either side of the cable. It therefore combines the uses of the well-know American skidder with transport by gravity cableway. The operation is simple, as can be seen by reference to the diagram.
