Another homemade crane

This is my crane, I built it with the help of a mate from work for the cost of $95 Aussie dollars.

I'm currently making brackets so I can cut it in half and join it again for easier transportation. The beam is 5m in length.

Hope you like it.

Very nice!

Although it does look a bit heavy ;)

Any footage?

No footage yet Mike, I still haven't cut it in half. I should have the brackets finished this weekend. I just got a battery system sorted out for the LCD screen last night.

It's not really that heavy, the wide angle lens on my camera made it look a little more bent and the tripod is probably a little too small. Except for bolts the whole crane is made from aluminium.
