The most overbuilt thing I've ever seen in my life

I saw this gantry crane on craigslist.  This thing is sized to fit over a vehicle, but built to lift a fucking cruise ship...

the dude wants 2k for it....here is one that can lift a ton for less than half the price

Seems like a decent deal for that much steal.

Those beams are pretty expensive. Plus Pittsburg is trash. 



yeah, but you will never find anything short of thor's hammer that would require a beam that size for the size of that gantry crane...

Overkill is a good thing. Its probably not high enough to lift anything near it's capacity. Gurantee it never breaks though.

here is on rated for 4,000 pounds.  overkill is a good thing, but this is on another level.  that would be able to lift like 15 tons...lol.

if it wasn't for those casters.  those are what, rated to 500lb at most, maybe 1k?

It would suck to maneuver that beast

You never know when BWS might be in your area and you want to take him out for dinner.

You could upgrade the casters though.

LOL


Yeah, I dunno, maybe his boyfriend likes that one?

Doesn't look like much clearance, based on the truck next to it. Also, good luck finding a smaller trolley that will fit over that flange.

I’d check that dudes backyard fir a miniature nuclear reactor.

I know nothing about these things but,I'm shocked all of that can be supported on those casters.
