Yesterday I spent the whole day in NYC. Here are some pictures:
Two Link-Belt truck cranes in Yonkers:



This 4100 had just moved a block fully rigged and was readied for work


Another one, this one without a “chicken coupe”

A Demag AC 140

And another 4100

The Lomma 4100 Ringer on a barge


A 3900

And a Liebherr LTM1250

kerst, The 4100 by the dumpster is a wonderful example of a well used piece of equipment. I love the bent ladder and exhaust pipe. A really nice set of pics

Next time you go through Yonkers on Saw Mill River Rd, go about 1/2 mile north of those two Link-Belts and you'll see Ciancuilli's yard. A couple Tadano's and Liebherr's.

Nice spotting on those rigs!

1:1 or 1:50, I am still in awe.

He was going to, but it walked by itself instead!

Yes they do, everytime I go down to NYC I always see more then one or another crane besides it like Bay Crane since, they are everywhere.Also all those pics I have seen most of those cranes before espically the ones in Yonkers, and the 4100's that you took pics of except for the demaq AC140, and the LTM 1250.Great pics again.Applause Applause

We had Brutus parked at Cianculli's yard a month ago when we did a move for Loftus Construction across the street.


Great 4100 pictures Kerst. They never get old. Thanks for the little preview for when we move that thing...

On top of the 4100's in pictures # 4, 5, and 6, there is a frame with load meters for the 2 hoist lines. Is that a "homemade" modification, or was that something that Manitowoc included for use on the crane in tower configuration? I've never seen those before.

It must be "home made". There is also a boom limit switch on the gantry, pretty substantial, but effective.

Thanks Kerst. Photos of the 4100 towers with the camera pointed "up" would be enjoyed and appreciated.
Those boom limit switches look like they could do double-duty as TV aerials.
