At reduced load (10 tons) a rate of 40ft/min can be achieved.


The crane can self-propel for short distances (a few hundred yards is realistic), it has a top speed of 85’/min, or just under 1 mile per hour!.


The superstructure of the crane can be slewed through a full circle in under 2 minutes



The jib is raised or lowered at 6ft per minute, taking over 6 minutes to get to working height from the rest position on the Jib runner.
