Cool, I've always been facinated by heavy duty cranes, ecpecially the CNW one on the museum grounds. Hey now you guys got 'em, you can do all the lifting you like!

The CNW bought six Ohio DE-300 cranes in 1976 (C/N 5020-5025). Which one do you have?

Mark Secco sent me the info on the OHIO crane for posting. I did ask him the reporting marks and that is included in the entry. I do not have the C/N but perhaps Mark will see the question and be able to supply an answer. Bob Kutella

I talked to Mark Secco Saturday and he advised the C/N for our OHIO crane is 5025. Isn't the internet wonderful? Bob Kutella

Ohio C/N 5025 is a Model DE300 shipped May 28, 1976 new to the CNW

Thanks John for the info. Any and all help is much appreciated. J.Sakash Co. has just donated a brand new drawbar sling to us, very useful. We also just dropped the boom pendants to get ready to install new ones. The CNW 262051 is on her way to becoming a fully operational and OSHA compliant crane. Mark

Hey Paul, Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier . It was always great working with you . I miss giving you new hats every once in a while . We not only use the Ohio crane but also the Cal Ave. wrecker which I'm sure you remember. I traded a 1986 Bulls Starter jacket for that . Long story, I'll tell you some time.
