Hi Cull, generally speaking, it depends on the capacity of the crane. The higher the capacity of the crane, the more boom it can extend. We have a 250t crane that has 60m of main boom, but it can also carry a "luffing fly" boom, of various lengths up to another 56m. The big crawler that was at Spencer St Station last year had well over 100m of boom in it. SilverMB will have some good photos of various larger cranes around Melb in different combinations of boom rigging, such as straight fly, luffing fly, etc etc. But with mobile cranes that can drive on the road and set themselves up in a matter of minutes, 60m is about the maximum getting about in Australia.

Holy Shit!!! So many bloody Cranes and so many bloody Construction Sites in the one area, holy crap.

Anyway, here's a question, what type of crane is this at Harbour Lights in Cairns.

CUL... could you at least add the word CRANES to this thread.. you yourself said time for a new cranes thread... at least over 500 messages.

The current "thread head" really doesn't point to cranes being in here.

This is from today's CBR TIMES.

Does anyone by any chance have that great diagram that appeared in a Melbourne paper a while back about getting Eureka's cranes down? Twice in the last week someone on the world forums has asked about cranes, particularly extracting them from cores. I looked for a while but can't find the diagram.

If any of you crane guys want to try and explain this stuff the thread is here:

Nice link ABC, very nice. Good job to Taipei Walker as well.

Spencer St cranes will be a good photo opportunity over the next few nights.

Crane looks like a converted M310D on about 9 towers.

Each tower section is 2.4t
Climbing frame is 8t
Pedestal is 3.4t
Deck is 5.5t front half, 3.8t back half
Cabin is 1.2t
Counterweights are 5.1t each, and there is 7 of 'em
A Frame is 3.3t
Ladder up A frame is .7t
Slew ring is 1.1t
Butt section of boom is 2.5t
Tip of boom is 1.5t
Remainder of boom could be up to 5t
Hook is .5t
Power pack is 7t
Rope is 1t
plus diesel, oils, operator and his lunch box = 105.2t thereabouts.

Very windy in Melb this week, not much crane action. There have been attempts to remove the green crane at Spencer St all week, but it just won't stop blowing.
