Great move to the 4100L Jack! Looks to be a great little picker!

Nice pics as always of the jobs. I look forward to the day when you get your own LTM 1750 Wink

Thank you Paul, Dont worry. Thats my plan!!

First shift at my new job, rigging the LTM 1800 on 77m luffer for air handling units








Job done, piked down ready to de-rig







Straight onto the next job, LG 1750 with a 330 ton cable reel





1750 dwarfs the 100!





The cable reel on Allelys faktor 5 girder frame





Out the frame and over the vessle





Connecting the tray








Next job a 161 ton transformer





Travelling upto Scrabster, North Scotland for 171 ton transformers











Allelys (one of our parent companys) LTM 1100-5.2 ; Best crane Ive ever operated!





LG 1750 on our way to a long job on a wind farm on Scotland







105m of boom being built







120 something ton nacelle going up





My first time operating the LG, good day Teeth







Highest pad on the site, and rigging down a hill meant an interesting rig!









Was a pain reaving the hook block up!!!




Sarens 500 in the distance doing blades on luffer





WOS moving sections around site









Taking the 1800 to a rail infrastructure show not far from the yard








lots more to come......

Many thanks Jack.
