Faran crane truck (12)

Now, here is the reason why I opted for a pneumatic crane: heavy lifting! This is on the very edge of what this crane can handle, but it's able to carry a Dragoon APV (which is quite heavy) completely off the ground.

    Wow that's amazing! How did you make the Crane? Maybe if you made two crane's you life you tank?

    So much to love in that truck, but the fact that the crane is strong enough to lift a relatively large vehicle like that is even more impressive!

    Wow, thanks all, and thanks for blogging it Andrew!
    I have to admit though, that the crane can only hold a load this heavy for a short period of time. Despite the reinforced base it made some rather ominous cracking sounds (of plates being pulled apart) during the photo shoot, and I was glad I managed to get a good picture before its imminent collapse.

    Sounds like someone wasn't reading the safety regulations LOL.

    Amazing that a crane on an 8 wide truck can lift that! Good job on the truck and dragoon too!

    Think you could deconstruct the crane? So I could use it on a later build?
  • Aleksander Stein 5y

    I'll see if I can get some, if not breakdown pics, close-ups of the crane. I've recently changed the crane base so the crane can lift even heavier loads, so I was planning on shooting a few more photos anyway. If I get the time, I'll probably have some photos up by the end of the week.
