This is a view from the cab of a 60 ton rough terrain crane.
The boom is in the center. The block is behind the large structural girder.
Here's another view. The blocks are in the center; to the left of the man in the harness.
This is a view from the operator seat. (Yeah. That's a picture of my leg,
for the ladies for reference) The computer is in the upper right hand corner.
This is a better photo of the computer. The readings are 77.4 feet of boom extended, the boom angle is 55.9 degrees and the load radius is 39.5 feet. Total weight on the block is 4000 lbs and the maximum weight for the line configuration (single whip line) is 12,300 lbs.
I can't take pictures of the controls because they're joystick controls on the right and left. Alternate controls for the boom lift and boom extension are on the floor with the accelerator and brake pedal.
So, if you've been wondering where I've been, there you are.
