    Those are big in europe. They are really similar to the self erecting mobile tower cranes, basically mounted on a allterrain carrier. Pretty specialized, and I'm sure they are great when everything works the way its supposed too. In the tight confines of europe/ UK, they really shine for rooftop HVAC, trusses, etc. You aren't going to lift 40,000 with it though.

    First one I have seen that folded up on a mobile carrier. Looks like one of the climbing cab models that can be operated from any height. Interesting that it sets at the top when the machine folds up.

    Spierings is the main name I've heard of, and I think there's a couple other manufacturers
