Sparrows operated Lorain mobile cranes. I reckon this is one - one of the MOTO CRANE models.

Hi Again,
American Yes, But not Lorrain or Linkbelt.

It's a P&H 150 tonner.
Circa 1968/70 I worked for the Cardiff Plant Group and they ran two of these, see pic. below.
Both cranes were identical except that the older one had mechanical transmission and the newer one was fitted with an Allison transmission.

Interestingly the one in the pic. which also carried the Gould Plant name, we fitted with a fairlead and probably with about 100 ft. plus of stick.
It was then used as a long reach dragline to dredge a lagoon at Wentloog near Cardiff.
We had a few of the companies Terrex R24 dumptrucks under her on that job.

Fred.

The crane in the third pic down is a weird looking contraption - looks like somebodies nicked the steering axle. :lol:
