Whats Happening ?

4th October 2009

Alistair shows Adrian how to operate the RB in crane mode.  Adrian is first instructed as to how to manoeuvre the crane to a new position.  Driving such a large beast, even at only two or three miles an hour is somewhat scary!

Alistair sets Adrian the task of raising and lowering the boom and block in order to set the hook down in a number of different spots.

Barry Hughes arrives and discusses with Alistair how best to alter the gates and reinstate them. A whole lot of careful measuring and wood-working is required.  Alistair is going to look for suitable pieces of timber, the size required to extend the gates to the necessary width, in his stock of redundant balance beams.
