Gee - that looks like your basic "Cherry Picker" crane - 4x4 balloon-tire chassis, with the 4-man cab hung on, in front.

Given the limited suspension travel (if any) in those wheel arches, the short wheel-base on those bouncy balloon tires and that terrific overhang - the crew up forward must have quite an interesting ride, at any kind of speed.

Obviously thought up for densely-populated, multi-storey units located on steep grades, in the mountainous terrain.

Don't think it does much racing along an Interstate Highway/ Motorway !

Thanks, Jacques, for showing us another uniquely interesting rig.
