Barkerjoh,

Assuming that you refer to this MTH O gauge model: https://mthtrains.com/30-7932 , you should find here specifications of about 25 different American Hoist & Derrick railroad cranes: https://cranemarket.com/specs/rail-equipment/railroad-cranes/american
I suppose that the unit modeled by MTH in a 1/48 scale is the 825 DE model: https://cranemarket.com/specification-1266

I hope this helps.
Guy

Indeed big $!! i was hoping for something less than $300 usd....lol... Guess it's back to playing around with my cheapo 130 euro EMCC vinci conrad sennebogen 5500.... I like the bulky classic look of the upper sometimes, but i guess the cheaper way to go is probably getting a twh 4100w.....
