Holy shit. I can put you in touch with the statics and engineering department if you like. ;)

Dude, That would be Way over my head. Those guys are probably MIT graduates. I'd have no clue what language they even speak!

But...

I'd love to sit in on the tech training schools. The ones where they teach the guys how to diagnose and fix this stuff?

I've been attending manufacturer training , in the automotive industry, my entire life.

Would be awesome to learn something new. This shit is mega bad azz.

Here's a 3 story baller pad in Crystal Cove I was working at last month with a 265ton. The big beams weighing in at 16k were the biggest I've set in a house!
You work for Hill? Is that an LTM 1220?

Yeah they got alot going on down there like a 6 car garage with a car elevator!
They've got a lot of those up the way in Cameo Shores. It's on a hill and the houses lie between two streets, so they do a single story and dig down. Guests enter up top on the main floor and cars go a street down and enter through the basement. Pretty cool you get to work on those.

Drive by this site twice a day, still haven’t seen this big boy move.

Currently you can see almost what looks like two separate sections of steel going up(better view from 74) . This crane will lift steel trusses that will bridge those two sections.
Someone told me it took 6 weeks to assemble that crane but I wasn’t there to see it go together. It’s one of those sites where not supposed to post pictures or I would put better pictures up. Cool project to be apart of.

Was that up in Newport Coast maybe? I was on a bike ride and looked up from Crystal Cove area to see a build like that going on way up the hill. A massive footprint like your pics.

Just curious... How does one become a crane operator? Or heavy equipment operator for that matter? I would assume there comes a point in time where on the job training does not meet certain requirements and there are recognized certifications that have to come into play.

find your local Internation Union of Operating Engineers union hall. in LA it is Local 12. Ask to take the apprenticeship test & go from there. Don't waste your time with the "for profit" schools, they aren't worth a crap.

OK cool Lift. So which crane has most of the load here. I assume the Crawler from the rigging and Spreader? On a lift like this, how do they keep the two cranes from fighting each other laterally? does one crane control x and Y and the other crane just floats along? thanks

Yeh, the rigging will dictate the majority of the lift. My guess tells me the crawler has the majority load. There is a Derrick and ballast tray to the left that isn't in the pic. Pro ably another 250 tons on the Derrick. The Harbour crane are meant and built to pick right on top of the ships. The crawler can do whatever they want at a given radius

The biggest crawler we make. 3,300 ton capacity. This here is number 5. Heading to the states. For reference, each track weight about 212 tons, about the size of an M1 Abrams tank for you military boys.
It's the big one lifting all the others
