Giant Crane On Howard Street




Something big is being lifted near the city limits. A huge hvac, heating and air conditioning unit is being hoisted onto the Broadmoor? Gotta step back pretty far to get the whole thing into frame. Like Rogers Ave or at least a block away.

La Grange Grove GMK 6250 is the make and model. A used one from 2006 will set you back 1.6 million dollars. Better to just rent it out as needed. La Grange is based in Hodgkins, Illinois and has been in business for more than 50 years. This crane became the largest in fleet back in 2006. It can routinely haul up 10-15 ton Hvacs and water towers onto tall buildings.
