We just stumbled across this video of a ‘crane mobile’ from Liebherr, and it’s one of the most amazing things we’ve seen — four crawler cranes lifting each other in turn.

Staged as a way of demonstrating the load capacity of the massive LR 13000 crane, it starts off with a 62-tonne LR 1100 lifting a scale model of a crane, then being lifted by a 288-tonne LR 1350.

The LR 1350, in turn, is then lifted by a 1,080-tonne LR 11350 before the whole lot is lifted by the 3000-tonne LR 13000, which then rotates and crawls forward.

And yes, it wasn’t as easy as it looks!
