Seems like it is the M1280D you guys have been talking about, the reason why its taking such a long time is because they can not install the arm of the crane, they are calling help from the australian manufacture.
So, if it is Favco M1280D, then it looks we have some record. It will be probably first time when such big Favco crane(s) will be used to skyscraper construction. I don't remember exactly, but probably at Taipai 101 construction two M1050D were used, not M1280D.

Yeah, just look at the below foto. There is one laying on the ground, and right next to it regular truck. And you would ask, how that big and wide piece of steel was transported on the normal road with normal track Maybe they put them together allready on the site (becouse they seems to consist of couple of parts) ??

The Huangpu River is just blocks away, they probably had them shipped via barge then unloaded them onto large flatbeds to the site.

Hi abc,

I'm just fan of different types of lifting cranes, not only tower cranes...
I like to recognize cranes...
Also I'm member of technical forums http://ist.my1.ru and http://tcfs.ru (Russian language, but if you will be interesting is something, just tell and I will try to explain )

But, back to Favco cranes... Thank You very much for link to Marr's cranes. I see there is also climbing variant for largest Favco M2480D! I can' wait to see some skyscrapercity project under construction where this crane will be employed!

I remember about Chifley Tower, I don't exactly remember if there was climbing Favco variant used, but this building is not supertall (about 244m). Therefore I was talking about M1280D premiere at ST construction.
