Here is a collection of pictures from my new job as slinger / banksman / rigger at a local crane hire company.

Up on the roof of Birmingham's New Street Station with a GMK 3055-1



Our Brand new 3180 Challenger in the yard



Lifting scaffholding off the roof of a dairy





I often get to work with other companies and cranes such as this brand new Tadano ATF 50-3G



We had NMT's AC 350 on hire a few weeks back and she was parked up in our yard for the weekend





Our newest GMK 4100L lifting rubbish off the roof of a hospital





The 3180 all stickered up





Air con units in Warrington with this ATF 90-4G





The 3180 in Melton lifting roof sheets



Scaffholding again with another 4100

Thanks lads, Loving the new job Cool A tight spot indeed Paul - the length of the crane was longer than the space we had to set up in!

These last two weeks I have done alot of work with self erecting mobile tower cranes. These are truly impressive machines and Mr Speirings is an incredibly clever man. Its just a shame the work that they do is always fast and non stop!

The 5 axle Speirings SK599-AT5







And the slightly bigger SK1265-AT6 which i got to have a play in!



The phrase "Don't look down" comes to mind!



Operators View



A very good view from the top!






And to finish our "New" AC 40L

Cool pics Jack, and it is amazing that it all folds away like it does!.

I love the view from up high but sadly heights give me the shivers Wink

Paul you wouldn't have liked going up the lift on the side then... it made some funky noises that got me twitching. Teeth

Great shots of the self erectors Jack. I'm actually set up beside an older model one right now and have been for the last week, don't know much about them but it's on 4 axles and has around a 30 metre towerSmile
