This picture is from April issue of IC. It is of a 1961 Ruston Bucyrus 22RB, serial No.25254, lattice boom crawler crane. It was used in the central plateau area of New Zealand’s North Island as a log loader. Despite lying disused for years, with a little help from some new batteries and a copious quantity of ether quick start, it fired up. We are always on the lookout for other great pictures like this as candidates for our picture of the month contest, so please send your entries to the editor firstname.lastname@example.org whenever you have something suitable.
