About this creation
A look through my pages will reveal that I love cranes. Incredible
machines… functional, but, at least in my opinion, they can be aesthetic also.
Perhaps not in beauty, but in almost a complex, physical, Rube-Goldberg type of way.
Last year I completed a large crane, a scaled copy of the Liebherr 1750. This time around I wanted to something bigger, yet smaller at the same time.
Encouraged by this Eurobricks.com thread, I had fun looking at other micro
builds others have done. Although the crane below is not all that small in
an absolute-value kind of way, given that I sought to replicate an
immense crane, at least in scale it is. In fact, although I did not
plan this, when it was all said and done the model below was very close to
scale of official Lego Micro Figures. Not perfect, but close.

Introducing my Micro version of the Liebherr 13000. My build is a little
different.. Did not replicate all the winches and the engine is seated in a
different spot than the real crane. But other than that it is more or less a replica of the crane. Functions and features include:

- Modular
- Four fully-functioning winches
- Engine bay with hood that opens
- Manual forward and backward drive
- Manual rotating superstructure
- Movable cab

Not a ton of functions and features– but at least a good amount for a micro model. Video and pics below:

Hugely impressive, a triumph of Lego engineering.

Nice structural engineering at the crane arms, Nerds!

Great job Nerds! Lots of detail! Don't think I've ever seen bevel gears meshed in that way before, Very interesting!

With the limitations of Lego it would not be possible. Unless, of course I changed the scale. I have built a much larger crane where all this was possible. In fact, check out http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/425498 where I did exactly as you mentioned in your post (with the exception of the drive). Notice the difference in scale though....
Quoting Owen the Omniscient of Lithowenia First of all, EXCELLENT build. But I have an idea! I, by no means, have the skill to do this, but I think that if you built this, you might. Would it be possible to replace the counterweight[s] with a battery box and make it move forward or back? I notices the knob on the back to make the crane treads move is exposed. Could you attach a motor to that? What about the winch? Is this feasible, or am I just not experienced enough to see this is impossible? Thanks! Well done!

I would love a pet crane....lol. It could pick me up every time I fall.....
Quoting Jeremy McCreary OK, I'm building this. Don't try to stop me. Remember the pet rock craze? Think pet crane. You'll be rich!

I would love to see a large model (lego) of the real crane.... it truly is daunting
Quoting D H Absolutely brilliant! And sorta a cute little critter haha. Love that you managed to get so much function into it and replicate a scale model of something so impressive!

Thanks! Actually, it was easier than I thought it would be. If you ever owned 8288.... now THAT was a difficult model to balance. The weights were far from the center which made it wobbly. I built my model (after the real thing) with the weights close to the turnable. Really helped with balance.
Quoting Seaman SPb Wow! Excellent build! Probably it was difficult to balance all.
