New giant on the block...

Post by Pete Coleman » Fri Jul 13, 2012 12:06 pm

At some £1.300.00 and over nine feet high (2.6 mtrs), unfortunately I have neither the money nor space for this 1:50th scale crane model... x9x
Everything on the real crane is designed so that it will break down and fit into around 135 standard 40' containers to enable transportation by road and sea!

Well you wouldn’t want Big Benny on your foot would you Pete! And you would need a very large jam jar for the inevitable left over nuts and bolts, no quick release fittings in that profession.

I wonder how long it takes to set up the base track to support the whole crane and a 3000 ton load (Interesting spelling of ton and not tonne. Still working in Imperial?)

What would Big Benny be used for, I know picking up really heavy big stuff, but what sort of really heavy big stuff?

Anyway thanks for sharing, really interesting.
Rob.
