As shown in FIG. 12, since the reinforcing ribs 35 are arranged in a small gap having a small size b, it is necessary to sufficiently reinforce the welding portion between the overhang beam 21 and the boom bracket 14A. However, it is difficult to use it alone, and it cannot be an effective measure for alleviating stress concentration, and there is a problem that the durability and life of the welded portion cannot be sufficiently increased.

The present invention has been made in view of the above-mentioned problems of the prior art, and an object of the present invention is to provide a reinforcing member for compensating for a positional shift between a horizontal plate of a center frame and an overhanging beam for supporting a cab. As a result, the joint strength between the bracket portion of the center frame and the overhanging beam is increased, stress concentration can be reduced at the welded portions of the two, and the durability and life of the welded portion can be improved. An object of the present invention is to provide a swing frame of a construction machine.
