Crane has been on site more than two hours now. It's moving, but not actually doing anything. So we may have to wait until morning to find see any installations.

Maybe the crane is unloading the mast sections of the truck. Could explain the movement but not putting anything up onto the podium.

Cameras were down for a couple hours, but it's here! There are now two crane (masts) on top of 3WTC.

While it may be a relatively short boom, that means it can lift more than a longer one. This particular one can lift right around 100 tons for it's max capacity.

man, things look pretty intricate in that last shot. Cranes and pumps every where. Is that red arm on the south side another concrete pump?

That connects the truck to the concrete boom.

This, my friends, is where things start to speed up!

its a 64 Tonne (71Tons) crane, and it can lift that amount at at about 50 feet in this boom configuration.

I'm sure we'll see the third crane placed sooner rather than later.

then again, Winter is coming. (snow, tomorrow) We're finally going upwards, which is great, but I don't expect things to really pick up until after February.

Favco 760 with 135' boom. It can lift 35 ton up to 100' with 1 fall and 70.5 ton up to 50' with 2 falls - thejacko5 is right, though you are not wrong either since the capacity for 3 falls is 105 ton up to 20' radius.

Thanks all for the clarification!

You are welcome.
Actually I believe they will start with one fall for line speed then switch to 2 falls later for the heavy picks
