About: I am an 18 year old from luverne MN, and I love to spend my spare time playing with knex, Legos and my xbox. I also enjoy hunting, airsoft, and swimming.

Well here it is! My new, crane! This crane is based off of an overhead crane, and uses 4 motors. It is fully functional, and the dimensions (of the interior) are as follows:

Length: 34-1/2 inches (87.63 CM.)
Width: 29-1/4 inches (74.295 CM.)
Height: 35-1/2 inches (90. 17 CM.)

It's weight capacity so far, is 5.2 Lbs. (2.358 KG.)
If you are trying to build it yourself self, fell free to do so! But you might notice in some places I had to be a little "gettho" in my construction. Hope you enjoy, and shout out to the person who featured my last ible, it is much appreciated!
I hope you all enjoyed, and maybe with some feedback from the community, I might make a tutorial on it!

    This is the zenith of all K'nex creations! I wish I could make something as awesome as this. How much weight can it lift? Will there be final video?

    I did mention above that it so far can lift 5.2 Lbs., and I would like to add a video, I have one made, but I can't figure out how to insert it.

    I want to add a video to it, but I've never done it, so I don't know exactly how to do it.

    I think you can add a video (made with you phone) the same as pictures.

    Do you have to post the video on YouTube first? Then paste it in?
