Tower Crane With Trolley and Hoist

This example models a tower crane with a trolley and a hoist. The hoist can raise and lower a load, and the trolley moves the load towards and away from the tower. Blocks from the belts and cables library are used to model the pulleys that control lifting the load and moving the trolley.
