Default Link Belt Crane and 1934 Caterpillar 40 Day!

Some of us have bigger and better toys than others...
Here are pictures of John and Mike Boyajian’s big equipment moving day after months of planning.
They will fill in the details, later.

Sometimes, the story getting it home is as good as what you brought...

Thanks Don for posting the pictures. The crane was only 8 miles away. The weight of the crane without the boom is 19000 lbs.
It is a LS60 and we will try to find a manual for it. It has a
6 cyl. gas Waukesha engine. We had a lot of help from our
friends. It only took 45 minutes to load. The Cat 40 diesel
can pull it around ok. Overall height is 10' 2". We are very
happy to get it home.

John and Mike
