Really nice!!! Thanks for sharing!

I have a little question for you guys, do the name (or number) of the crane fits with the lifting capacity? Examples:

18000: 1800tons

21000: 2100tons

31000: 3100tons

Thanks in advance!

I noticed the Crane Rental Corp' decals on the 31000 so I looked at their website and they have a provisional manual on PDF.
