hey y'all
Whats your fave real world crane?
(note: it actually has to be owned by a company and be on the road)
you can not use a concept crane or crane that has'nt finished testing yet.
you have to be able to see it on the road.
I'll start:
Demag AC 700 IN SARENS.

Don't think that I will leave the dirt side to go cooking..

what was that super futuristic looking one Franz Bracht had made by Demag,i think it was the "demag tc3600 quick lifter"

all i ever heard was it was in a accident with Bracht,it colapsed while lifting a bridge section(i think) then was bought by an Italian operator

does anyone know anymore??????

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

The three big cranes that I was around quite a bit were a CC-2800 on wind power job, Manitowoc 16000's -three of them all on wind power, and the Manitowoc 888 Ringer that worked up the road from me on the big arch bridges. I think they were all incredible to see work and make big lifts. The control and power is amazing on any of the big modern cranes.I enjoyed being involved and taking pics of the work. I also learned a lot about the skill and judgement it takes to run a big heavy lift crane at height and distance. Crane operators deserve the respect they get.That seat is not a place for the faint of heart.

TimT,

Yes it does take skill and judgement to make those big pics. But I have to say, from my experience, it is way easier to make the big lifts that it is to hang iron. Granted, if something goes wrong with a big lift it will be way worse.

To bring a tree of iron beams to two guys 150' in the air, at a fast speed and put it in their hands without taking them off the iron, is way more stressfull that making a big pick, at least it for me. I just turned 41, and my gotee is mostly gray. I have no doubt why.

Now I would have to go for the awesome Demag AC1600 in Hewden Stuart Livery.

This machine although was short on main boom, the duties with the cruciform outriggers were staggering and therefore set a trend with the AC650, AC700 and AC2000........

The AC1200 had swing out front outriggers so doesnt fall into the class of these machines...

Hopefully the AC1000/9 will be in a class of its own..............

And judging by what my friends that were at Zwiebrucken the Big Demag is nearly ready for the road.

This old girl, a Lima 70 tonne lattice boom. its old, probably a 1970s built machine, still going strong. was owned by The Engineering Company, now owned by bridge builder, Tas Span.

As Mammoet says "SIZE DOES MATTER". Slowly collecting Mammoet 1:50 scale stuff. Mainly cranes!
