It’s not WSI. These are IMC models.

Cool Those loads look really good,either under a crane,or as a HH load.They are not,but they look heavy.

Thoemen livery on a huge LTM is about as good as it gets. Beautiful!

The LTM 11200 used to be my favorite model but I think these 1750's may be a step up!

If it's mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and automated I can build it.

Nice Paul, those seemed to have sold out pretty fast! Hope to see it rigged up.

Tandem lift with LTM 1750-9.1 from Digging & Rigging and Atlas Crane Services. The lift is a replica of a 418t bridge support made by IMC Models:

Applause Love it.Are those crane companies in the same country?iIf so,it's actually possible.Presumably,that bridge part arrived by barge,then transported to cranes by SPMT.

Yes they are both USA based crane companies and you’re right, delivered by barge and then on SPMT’s. Sadly I missed that part Whistle

Looks great Paul, thanks for the pics. Is that IMC load pretty heavy? Does it also come with those spreader bars?

If it's mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and automated I can build it.

Love the setup Paul - nothing beats a nice tandem lift!

I'm still planning (in the long term) to set up a tandem lift with my CC8800 and a smaller crawler, but that may not happen for a few years yet. I did one recently with two AC500s and a large trafo.

Also I'm loving the new US liveries on these cranes, and the IMC bridge support is fantastic.

It does come with the supports under the bridge section but the rigging is YCC spreader bars and shackles and Weiss Bros grommers.

Forgot to answer the weight question - yes it is quite heavy as it weighs 1.4kg.
