So the wheels under the counterweight rotate too? Or rotate the tracks to be parallel to the wheels? Now you gave me something else to Google today.This lift was, and still is the biggest I was ever in charge of. 750,000 lbs. 1.5 million+ in counter weights. The crane was a 1750 tonne machine, absolutely massive. It was a pick, swing and travel lift, and one that I was nerved out about for months.
