Shame we couldn't have built the crane as well as the carriers.
How bigs the crane thats going to lift the crane?
Could be the one? A Gottwald AK680 owned by Sarens UK is based in nearby Middlesbrough. The crane is 80 metres (262 ft) high with a maximum of 1200 tonnes of superlift, requires 45 transport wagons to move it, and takes three days to set up using a 100 tonne crane.
We are now a country that can't build a crane.....what a let down that is!
Oh yes we can :wave: The RSPB: The Great Crane Project: About the project
We can build a crane with the Meccano15 Model Crane Set MC 6515 £18.01 (Incl VAT) Oh! bugger, just had a look that's made in China too.
It's too laughable even to comment on.
I wonder whatever they intend to do with it once it has finished its 'Carrier building role'?
......There must be a crane museum somewhere in the UK just begging for it.
Its worse than that "Maccano " is made in France :sad3:
