This hard-working crane pulls out all the stops. Our biggest construction-grade toy yet, it includes a boom that extends to more than 4', a 360°-rotating turntable, and fully functioning outriggers.

The Project Kit contains all the specialty parts and hardware needed to complete one crane. (See photo. Lumber is not included with Project Kit.)

My son loves this. I incorporated lots of exotic woods into this one. I ended up making the spool out of dowel rods.

Cons:
I am about 3/4 of the way there, sanding and assembly still to do. Though it isn't quite finished it already looks fantastic, the instructions are very clear. I decided not to go for the kit which includes hardware, wheels etc which made the job a bit more...challenging!! And as it is for the grandson I wanted the wheels a bit more childproof so I made them out of rubber sheet. Assembled as follow if you fancy a go: rubber 1/4" thick full circle 2 3/4" diameter + a rubber 1/4" thick 2 3/4" diameter with a 1 1/4" hole in the middle + 1/4" thick plywood 1 1/4" diameter for the middle. It looks good....well...I think so anyway.

I would highly recommend this project.

Though this one isn't finished yet I will definitely take on a similar project when this one is complete. I will try to upload some photos of this project if I am allowed to do so.
