A good friend a Maxim, location Baltimore, sends me nice pictures of some of his projects. Here some vessels had to be placed. Used cranes were the AC 500-2 and the AC 1300.
An other crane from the depot Baltimore is this AC 665. Here the crane was fitted with luffing jib to do some test-lifts.
SOmething that springs in sight is that the luffing jib only has one A-frame to move it. The "older" cranes from Demag, like AC 1200 and AC 1600, also where build like this. At the moment Grove still uses this principal today.
This is a AC 1300, a 400 metric (500 short) ton crane. Here it was fitted with fixed jib, together with the AC 665 in downtown Baltimore to replace a large sign.
A very nice job in Washington DC some months ago. First the AC 1300 had to be lifted over a wall, to do this the fully rigged the AC 660.
The AC 1300 had to lift some of these modules and a day later the crane was dismantled and air-lifted once again.
A big new Liebherr mobilecrane will be delivered soon, as soon as I get pictures I'll put some up. My thanks go to Fred and all the other employees at Maxim Crane Works!
