That is a good observation. Actually I think the large diesel luffing jib cranes used for the big office towers (150 Riverside, River Point, 110 Wacker, etc) have tended to have a black base. The electric luffing jib cranes for the smaller steel and concrete buildings that require luffers have typically been the same color schemes as the hammerhead cranes. So yellow on Vista, red on Gems 2, etc. Looking forward to seeing this crane operational!

I drove by the project site yesterday and they were lifting the motor and hoist wheel. Another impressive machine. I love the Favco 1760MD. I was thinking why the erector was renting from a different company and then I remembered LOMA, where they rented the crane for 150 N. Riverside, filed for bankruptcy, following a crane collapse in New York. Anyone know where this crane was prior to coming to Chicago?

I think Lomma survived that as I know lots of there cranes are/were used on Hudson Yards. As for this crane, it looks to be from Federated Crane.

While this crane looks to have a new paint job on the body there are pieces (counterweights/mast) of the crane that is the exact same (or close) shade of blue as the cranes that worked on 30 Hudson Yards. Although those cranes were from NY Tower Crane which I think is a part of Lomma.

^That very well could be. I am always interested in what structures these beauty cranes have built in the past.

Thank you for sharing! It is a very nice looking tower crane.

Sunday 12/9

Did a few laps between 110 & WPE yesterday. Here are a few shots taken during the early stages of the crane installation. Wasn't there for the most exciting part, but beggars can't be choosy

The 888 ringer at 150 was still more impressive than the MLC at 110. The mass and capabilities of 888 were just extremely impressive!
