Priestman Boom Crane with Grab


Refer to the Mack crane truck also from 1972 for more examples of the recycling which produced this model. The crane cab is from the Priestman Cub shovel, the jib is from the old International 6x6 Chipperfields Circus crane with a newly fabricated socket to allow it to pivot from the end rather than the middle. The winch is new though. Good thinking really, re-use all that stuff from the parts bins and make a quarter of a million more sales. The tracked base unit is new though and this one is missing its tracks and I'm not sure which ones to order to replace them.

The controls are really clever, when set up properly the lever by the winch opens and closes the grab
