|Rapier Super Mobile Crane|
The Super mobile crane was developed from the Standard Mobile Crane by
Ransomes & Rapier, in order to allow the crane to work in restricted
gangways. Rather than slew the crane by driving the rear around, the crane
is mounted upon a king post. The petrol engine and generator are still
mounted on the chassis, requiring several electrical connections to the
various crane motors.
