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.
The crane was a tracked unit, the counterweight super-structure was attached and slaved to it, and as the crane spun and then travelled, the counterweight just followed along on its wheels.

Think the Mill I work in had an 850K to pick two digesters up. Came over seas and delivered beginning of this month. Hopefully it stays to install a new one. Pretty cool to watch it get assembled. Faster than I thought possible.

So, life got busy, out of control, etc, lots of away from home jobs, life changes, etc, and there was a year and a half or so span with no wheeling. This CJ picture is one I snapped out at ruby falls, in the winter. Couple different groups were in for a run. I’ll have to see if I can find the one Jeep they had with them.

I like old school. Jeeps mainly, but I enjoy wheeling with some Toyota guys too. The old 4runner fell thru the ice. Took us an hour or so to extract him without damage.
