That is awesome!
I hope the jib gets made for this beast! I really want this model but I have no where to put itConfused I'd have to either take some models down or build another room!

Anyone know how many of the sgc models will be produced?

Sweet vid Tim!

I too would like this model but room is the issue, as is ceiling height. I am wondering how stable this model will be if it is boomed down a little because I don't have 2.6m ceilings!

Wonder if the cw containers will be hollow, if they are filled, the ups man will need a forklift to bring this bad boy to the doord'oh! and the shipping cost for this thing would be insane

Well, if I can display the SGC120 like this, then I might be tempted to pull the trigger!

I've always believed that fixed jibs have the most beautiful geometry of any crane set up. What a video!! There's also A LOT of RED IRON around that building. Nice to see. If one had the space, what a dio-rama could be made modeling this project.

It's pretty sad when the only model tool you own is a box cutter.

If the only tool you have is a hammer, you start to see every problem as a nail. Abraham Maslow

The next largest crane on the site is a Manitowoc 18000. It looks so small in comparison!! I can't wait to see the SGC-120 model next to my 18000 model! I am seriously in a bind trying to figure out where in my house to display it when it arrives, not to mention what to do if/when they make a jib kit for it. I drive by the site several times a week and never stop being amazed at the size of this beast.

thats what im saying, if it can hold the boom at that angle and be stable it would be totally worth it!!!

If its anything like the PTC then yes, it is absolutely solid, even at low boom angles. The SGC has a larger base and if the containers on the back are hollow then i'm sure a few extra weights would not go to for wrong hidden in them. So, Paul....pull the trigger Wink.

No for a little snippet of a rumor, don't all get to excited as it might amount to nothing but it would a appear Sarens may have a job for this monster right here in the UK, lets wait and see eh.

Hmmm…… SGC in the UK. Now wouldn't that be nice Smile Had the PTC fairly local for a year or two so would be great to see the SGC aswell.

Wow great vid......although I was hoping to see more of the helicopter than anythingAngel he he.

No really an impressive machine. Would be great to see in person.

One question though; do these large containerized cranes have their own ship or do they pack them on commercial cargo ships?

They go by commercial cargo vessels. As big as the cranes are, for a large container ship its a very tiny portion of the vessels load. In some places I'm sure they are transported only by rail or trucks. Only if going overseas or for long coastal voyages would the ships, barges, etc be needed.
