Step 1: Step 2

Picture of Step 2
If you have made the body and set the wheels and a caster wheel ,start making the crane. see in the picture and get ideas how to make a crane and set it on a motor.See carefully i have set the motors on right and left side of the crane.Also see at the bottom of the crane how i fixed the whole crane to a motor.To make the body of the crane you will need some pulleys. THE BODY OF THE CAR SHOULD BE STRONG SO IT CAN HANDLE OF THE CRANE.
