Really?? So the that is the one that replaced the Lampson crane in Milwaukee? I am honestly astounded that only one of those beauties has been produced. In theory, one could still be ordered today, correct?

Seems that there have been more 8800's made.....do you think that the 8800 Twin will be a "one off" too?

I traveled from Arizona to Milwaukee just to see it. Most impressive thing I have ever seen, It definitely takes on a whole new meaning of BIG when you actually stand next to it!!! (beware of falling ICE from a frozen boom) They had a 30' container sideways between the crawlers. The crawlers were 3-4 feet ABOVE the container....awesome

Probably my all time favorite crawler! If I ever get to do a custom one off, that 12600 would be at the top of the list.

This is how I saw it when I was climbing thru the brush on the hill overlooking the New Miller Park. And if you look close, there is a forklift under the counter weights. (I shot these with an old crappy manual Fugi 35mm camera that sits somewhere around here.)

At the time the crane was built there wasn't as much call for a Crane as large as the 12600. As ordering a 12600 I don't think Demag would manufacture another 12600. There were rumors (I guess rumors I've never seen documentation or anything else) about the crane being upgraded to a 12800.

I believe another 8800Twin will be manufactured and delivered, but for those who don't know I believe the Twin only did 1 lift and is operating only as a CC-8800/1 for now. Christian will correct me on this i know!

Edit: Future owners of a Twin 8800 (Could change)

CNEC; Beijing, China
Daewon Crane; ROK
(Info taken from http://www.kranliste.dk/)

Bigcranes, It is still one of the largest bulky crawlers around, Still my favorite large Demag. Would love to see it in person or in 1:50.

BryanG / Bluebarn.. Ya'll are lucky! Post some more pictures if you got em'! never get tired of seeing that beauty!

Those are great pics of the CC12600, one of the few cranes that I have collected images of. I'm curious, what ever happened to the CC12000? Were many of them built?

Was the CC12600 previously a CC12000 with an update or was it a completely new machine built using the same platform?

the CC12000 is a unique crane too, afaik its now working in India

the Cc12600 was the "spiritual" successor of the 12000

the CC12000 to me is the most "over-built" crawler there is. officially given for maximum 1000 tons load in theory it would give many modern crawlers a good lesson in heavy lifting

today this size class is covered by the CC8800-1 and CC9800-1 from Demag *cough* terex
afaik no customer has placed an order for a CC12800 2000tonner yet

the CC8800 Twin has been shipped but has not yet made a lift in Twin config according to my info. the machine is currently used in single CC8800 config but is said to be built up in Twin mode soon

as for future customers of Twin88 machines, i only believe what i see in the flesh, pardon steel, not on paper. whats safe nowadays?

Questions? What size is the tubing for the main boom? Wall thickness? And someone explain the numbers of the Demag 12000,12600,12800 to me so I'll know. Does Demag have their own steel mill to manufacture-quality control of the steel necessary to build these cranes? Thanks trying to learn one thing today. Bob
