Crane in a day.

Raising a crane in Manhattan in one day by a professional group of crane erectors NYR (New York Riggers). Ostensibly an ad for the group but the film gives a good idea of the joints between sections and the pins that go through them and the effort required to push them home! 1.55+

  • Professional group?It took a whole day?It should take a lot less than a day and does'nt need as many riggers to put up a tower crane.
    Having said that,they probably spent most of the day waiting for trucks to turn up.
