A pretty babe, standing mid-ships on a gigantic ‘truck crane’, seen on the China-Eurasia Exhibition in the great city of Urumqi last week. The truck crane is made by a Chinese company called Sany, the biggest maker of crane-like vehicles in the country.
I have been to a zillion exhibitions in China and I have seen them using babes for selling everything from cars to fishery equipment, but this was the first time I saw a babe on a crane. Next, me guess, are tractors.
Another babe up front, she was not as pretty as the green girl so she gets only one pic on this website. The crane is a Sany STC750, max lifting capacity is 75 ton, full length of boom is 45 meter, the outrigger span is 7.6 meter x 6.1 meter.
The truck is powered by a 6 liter Dongfeng diesel engine, good for a neat 255hp and 555nm, or so said a Sany boothperson. Truck cranes sure don’t really need to be very fast, but it is nice to know it can go. Price starts from 600.000 USD, not including babes, not even the pink one.
