Site report IC January 2008, page 43.

Crane Rental Corporation in the US used two Manitowoc 2250 crawler cranes to tilt up and place boiler modules, weighing up to 190 tonnes each, at a power plant site in Florida.

Some text from the story was missing. It should have read that the lead crane had 169,200 pounds (75.5 tonnes) of crane counterweight and 60,000 pounds (26.8 tonnes) of carbody counterweight.

No luffing jib was used on the crane during the lift.
