Lattice Boom Crane

The real one

The model makers from kibri sell a similar crane in 1:87 scale. Real size cranes are hard to find on a normal construction site, even if they reach a height of over 180 metres.

The LEGO model

In Oktober 2000 the first version of my minifigure scale mobile lattice boom crane was built. The 10-axle crane car is 8-wide. The upper structure first had only a main boom. In 2001 a second counter-boom for additonal counterweight and a jib was added. The maximum height of this model is 150 cm!

This model is not motorised. The winches has to be turned manually by hand.
