In resent the weight of structure is heavier and bigger than before. Engineers use many heavy equipments to erect buildings and bridges. The heavy equipment is very useful to lift any weight. But most engineers do not know the impact of the weight when the equipment lifts the weight. In this study one researched into the impact of the weight in the crane work which lifts the weight in the construction site. Also along the number of pulley sheave the impact of the weight was researched. From the impact field test the impact coefficient of a single pulley sheave crane was 0.65 and the four pulley sheaves crane was 0.13. The result shows that the impact coefficient of a single pulley crane is more than 5 time of the impact coefficient of the four pulley sheaves crane and that engineers must consider the impact effect of the crane work in the construction site.
