Classic Cranes

Post #1 by Jeremy Rowland » Sat Mar 20, 2021 9:06 pm

Here's a couple of classic cranes I stumbled upon today whilst getting some walking action; the one under the cover has a plate on the boom which I have examined and think it says Jones KL44 Crane, the other looks like an old Coles crane, can anybody identify it? Interesting anchor propped up against the side of the building as well.

Wouldn't spend too long in that loo knowing what was leaning on the outside wall.

Can you imagine the HP to lift that anchor plus the length of chain . The one under cover looks like work in progress, the other one looks as though It's still employed.

Also, make sure you you pull the small chain and not the big one!
