Heard about it,but haven't seen it,it's supposed to be up by Waterloo somewhere,supposed to be a big M series off highway truck there too.If they are only asking 10k for the AC,it won't last long.

My dad had an AC with a a Lorain crane. Was used daily until mid 50's and as yard crane until about 1962, it was then sold to a Westchester contractor who used it on sewer jobs for several more years.

Mike,wasn't that AC,one of Bob Brown's treasures? He had it on display at his yard in Federal Way,Wa. and around Christmas every year,he would hang a Santa Claus from it! I believe it was a cover truck on the W O T,in the '80's.

This crane was on the Nov/Dec 1985 WOTS cover and was owned by Bob Brown at the time. I read through the article but no real details on the crane other than setting it up with Christmas lights and display.
