The first end of the pillars is articulated to the mid section of the bottom boom. Each track element also has a drive shaft assembly suspended from the track element; spindle sleeves inserted on the drive shaft assembly; and a spindle head threadedly mounted on each spindle sleeve. The pillars are articulated by the second end thereof to a respective spindle head. There are further provided coupling elements attached to opposite ends of the drive shaft assembly; and separate connecting elements for torque-transmittingly connecting the spindle sleeves with the drive shaft assembly.
