BIOGRAPHY
Grumpy old 1946 hobbyist whose interest in photography has been nurtured by photonet thru the opportunity to actually have other people look at my pictures and learn from: Iviewing others', ii critiques of mine and others, and iii tips provided in forums, etc. I try and comment on pictures sometimes - and always appreciate comments left on my own. Cheers

Attaching the counterweight to framework lets the crane lift it onto it's own backside

The truck with the boom backs up to the lifting framework of the crane

The lower pins are put in place

With the lower pins in place, the cable connections to the boom are made

The lifting cable is theaded thru the sheaves (on the boom and the hook) and secured

Another counterweight is lifted off the delivery truck

This counterweight is attached to front of the 'truck' part of the crane

A spreader bar and lifting slings are now hanging from the crane hook

With crane in position, support pads are placed under the crane stabiliser feet
