How not to build a crane.
A cheap and cheery MOC with flying Volvo's in it. Melby's beware.
About this creation
The Marauder....


I'll start with my roadwheels, which are all sprung for off-roading. Not designed for toting around loads in any way.















They're plenty sturdy, though. I've taken apart MOC's with this crane.















The other side, which isn't quite symmetrical. Perfect for lifting things.















The trestle based crane arm, capable of withstanding basically anything it wants to. It's a bit floppy side-to-side, but that doesn't cause problems until the whole assembly breaks off.















The hook, armed with magnets for picking up my refrigerator. Still working on that.















The whole thing... majestic. (Yeah right)















Move along....











(Turn up your brightness... idk why these are so dark)
























Thanks for viewing!

I'm telling you guys... those Volvos are dangerous, especially when they fall out of the sky. :P

wow! nothing beats live coverage! lol! the second video surprised me, I expected to see the volvo being smashed gradually by the crane..then, VLANG!!! ouff! very nice, and funny! lol! I m however impressed by the stability of your crane, and, it responds pretty quickly too, great stuff!

Nice. It may lack exterior details but the functionality is immense. As I've seen it on videos,It works pretty well. :D Poor Volvo...

I like how the tracks veer up in the front, perfect for promoting a nice "tipping" action when in the field.... LOL Nice S Z

looks like the boom could snap if too much weight is applied to it but I haven't seen the videos yet and I can't because of our internet data cap. the car looks good but beware, Pneumatic engines have a whole crap load of torque and can twist axles or snap them if they are not big enough in diameter. but it looks good so far, what is it going to be may I ask? ~Ma$on Mc]{echn!e~

Ooookay... I think the chassis would make a good tracked military reconnaissance vehicle.

Well, it works - pretty impressively actually, even if it didn't get to live long... RIP Volvo.

The crane, whilst technically good, looks pants, and thus earns 3 out of 5. However, I was indeed thinking 'what if a Volvo was dropped on it?' and boom! - There's a video to resolve the mystery. 5 stars for that. An so, 5/5 plus 3/5, divided by two, equals 4 stars overall. Stay in school kids.
