    Sort by:

    I think it's a technical term, but the translation for every word will be
    altura: height
    bajo: under
    gancho: hook
    maybe it refers to the height from the arm to the hook of the crane?

    "en definitiva" means definitly, like "there is no doubt about something"

    "muy importante" very important, maybe it refers to big things or fragil things, it's not clear

    Hope I helped

    "Altura del gancho"

    The text is speaking about a crane which is in a dam (water barrier) in Valencia. The "altura bajo el gancho" means the height between the hook of the crane and the floor. It means that the hook of the crane is 36.30 metres tall and it can take up to 4 tons.

    "En definitiva"

    En definitiva means after all, in short, basically,...

    "Muy impòrtante"

    It means very important.

    Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you need more help! :o)
