Re: Workers at a crane hire company got creative with their brand new crane which they used it to pick up a McDonald's takeaway in Carmarthen, west Wales, UK.<br />
The 40m Spierings/SK1265-AT6 machine is mostly used for lifting heavy loads of anything up to 10 tonnes.<br />
But instead, they showed off its remarkable precision skills, too, by lifting a man to his lunch break.<br />
Malcolm Davies, the owner of Davies Crane Hire, said they did it for a bit of fun and captured the whole thing on video.<br />
Mr Davies said: "We phoned McDonald's the day before and they said it was fine.<br />
"So at 12.30pm, I rang them up to order my food, and said I was on my way. Then I climbed into the crane's basket.<br />
The 40 metre high crane went over the trees, and was lowered right by front of the door of the restaurant. Mr Davies meal was handed over and went back over.<br />
It only took about ten minutes to complete the manouevre and Mr Davies is even seen eating his chips on the way back.<br />
The crane operator sits the top of the crane and was in direct contact via radio the whole time.<br />
"I had a Big Mac." said Mr Davies<br />
"Staff at McDonald's were loving it, they thought it was brilliant.<br />
The Spierings/SK1265-AT6 crane can lift up to 10 tonnes, has a span of 60 metres (197ft) and can reach a maximum lifting height of 64.2 metres (210ft).
