Where I apprenticed, that crane would be good for at least 40 tons, maybe more!

There was a foundry outside Fowler that the last remnant was a huge overhead crane kinda like that. They tried for a long time to sell it and was unsuccessful. This eccentric old guy we knew ended up with it for free because he was the only one with a crane truck big enough and crazy enough to take it down. He cut it down and installed it in the old barn he had. He could pick up anything with it. Not everybody has that kind of equipment to take something like that down or transport it.

The problem with used cranes is getting them certified for re use, where I apprenticed they had cranes in the fab. shop that said 30 tons, I personally saw 98 tons on one of them; they cut a gap in the crane rails and support beams and pulled them into the gap onto the floor, likely a 50 ft fall; scrap iron. The thing being, they had no value other than scrap.

I drive through Chicopee every time we visit my mother-in-law in her retirement village; I could pick it up for someone and ship it!

I attended that auction on Tuesday. I almost bought the Yuasa lathe. :) Kicking myself now...

There were quite a few gantries, bridges, etc...which sold.

Decent looking sale, do you remember how much the Yuasa went for?

$1000 (plus auction fees and tax on top of that)
That wasn't bad compared to what I've been watching lately.
Lot of cool stuff in it, just found it on Bidspotter, but they didn't choose to list the hammer prices.

While I don't attend auctions much, I find that they rarely post the winning bid.

One of the other things I was watching were the Sterling pedestal drill grinders. Also kind of kicking myself for not picking one up. I think they went for $275 and $325; pretty decent deal.

Those were/are some pretty serious looking grinders. I've never seen that make before.
