Hi.

here two pics of cranes on trucks: the first the famous Kfz. 100 Drehkran on a Buessing-NAG truck, the second crane on a Ford, the last looks like a field modification (source: http://www.deutsches-afrika-korps.de).

Hello Edgardo

I dont know the oficial designation of this typ.

We know its a german typ, often used from the WL may be for maitenance or changing plane engines.
it seems to be a univeral crane to be mounted on all standart §ton trucks of the Wehrmacht. we found also pics from this crane on Borgward B3000.

So you see we need more informations :wink:

best regards

Henning

Hello Bert,

this special Luftwaffe crane is officially (according to D(Luft)T 8800/4) designated "Kfz-Aufsetzkran 3t", which means "attachable motor-vehicle crane 3 tons".

It had a weight of 1400 kg and could be attached to several 3 tons lorries (it was delivered to the troop seperatelly without lorry). It had a capacity of 3 tons at a radius of the crane of 2.5 meters over the end of the platform, respectively 2 tons at a radius uf 3.25 meters. The largest high of the crane hook was 5.5 meters. The lifting speed (depending of the weight of the load) was 5 to 15 cm/min.

Regards, Holger.
