I found this video on the spider-crane: http://www.mini-grue.fr/mini-grues-095-2.html#v1
It reminds me of those catapults they use to throw pumpkins. I wonder…
So Eric, to answer your question – yes it did walk in by itself.
I need one.
Here is another photo…
The crane is a autonomous powered unit on caterpillar tracks, completely folded up it can enter through a normal size door, it unfolds its spider-like arm first to stabilize, then the crane unfolds in its centre. It can go up and down stairs as well. After having taken the press out of the building the crane was used to pull the pallet truck up to the main street, quite a steep trip.
Nice press, but an amazing crane. Did it walk in by itself?
