Not a good pic, but we got one of hell of a crane working on one of the blast furnaces at the steel mill in our city. It's towering high above the furnace.

It belongs to Sterling Crane. They have a yard right on the mill property.

That’s nuts! Tough enough to disassemble the thing, now deal with all that counterweight baggage.

I've seen enough mechanical failures to know I wouldn't want to be anywhere near that thing, LOL.

Here is the largest crane shortly after finally assembly a few months back. There is actually a second crane on site now, slightly "smaller" in capacity. It has a pad on the other side of the dome. It's a very impressive sight to see both booms in the sky at the same time but very difficult to get in the camera frame!

I was certified to run cranes up to 17 ton but I bet the test has a few more questions on the form for those monsters.
