How to Build a Crane Lift

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on how to build a Crane Lift, which is required for the Picking Up the Slack quest.

Before you build the Crane Lift, you’ll want to build a furnace first so you can make some of the materials required. Head over to our guide on how to build a furnace if you don’t have one already. It isn’t required, but it’ll make your life a little easier and you’ll need one later on!

Icon Material Amount

To make the Crane Lift, you’ll need x8 "Bricks" iconBricks, x5 Wooden Sticks, x6 Thick Rope, x5 Copper Stick and x4 "Bearings" iconBearings. All of these materials are made from other resources, so in total you’ll need the following materials:

How to Make Thick Rope

Before you can make thick rope, you’ll need to obtain the recipe from the Commerce Guild shop. The recipe costs around 18 Gols (the price can fluctuate). To make Thick Rope, you’ll need to get a lot of Plant Fiber. Thick Rope is made at a worktable.

How to Get Plant Fiber

To make Thick Rope, you’ll need Plant Fiber, which is obtained from plants and bushes. You can either use your axe on certain plants or just gather with your hands. You’ll need 4 plant fiber for one bit of Thick Rope, meaning you’ll need 24 Plant Fiber in total to make 6 Thick Ropes.

How to Get Bearings

Bearings can be obtained from Mechanical Scrap, which can be mined from various scrap piles in Eufaula Salvage. Place the Mechanical Scraps into the "Recycler" iconRecycler and you’ll have a chance of recycling the scraps into bearings. The drops are random so you may need to collect more or less scraps depending on your luck. You need 4 Bearings.

Bearings can be obtained from recycling mechanical scraps.

How to Get Copper Sticks

At the stage when you’re making the crane, the only real option for obtaining copper sticks is to get them from copper scraps in the Recycler. Later in the game, you can get copper sticks from putting copper bars in the "Processor" iconProcessor.

How to Get Copper Scraps

You can obtain Copper Scraps from the scrap piles found at Eufaula Salvage Yard. The "Mixed Junk Pile" iconMixed Junk Piles and the "Copper Scrap Pile" iconCopper Scrap Piles can be mined for copper scraps. When you have a decent amount of copper scraps, return to your workshop and use the Recycler to recycle the copper scraps. There is a chance to obtain Copper Sticks from recycling copper scraps but its random so you may have to get more or less copper scraps depending on your luck. You need 5 Copper Sticks.

How to Get Bricks

Bricks can be obtained in a few different ways. You could either put stone scraps in a Recycler, but as with all things recycled, there’s no guarantee you will get bricks. If you have lots of Stone Scraps, then this might be the way to go!

Alternatively, you could place Stones in a furnace. If you want to learn how to make a furnace, head over to our guide!

You’ll need 4 Stones for every 1 Brick, so in total you’ll need 32 Stones. Luckily, Stones are really easy to come by, just head out and find some gravel stones near your yard and mine them with your pickhammer!

Bricks can be made in the furnace as well as obtained from the recycler.

How to Use the Crane Lift

The Crane Lift is a necessary build for the Picking Up the Slack main quest.
