From - Interview with Mike Parnell


Mike Parnell has been working in the Industry 35 years.

Cranesy: What do you love about cranes?

Mike Parnell: I really am impressed with how much a crane can do at such long distances. In talking with a number of crane engineers, they have noted that cranes are fairly delicate machines and they are often amazed at the work produced by a crane when compared to its slender design. When I see booms working at a project site, it reinforces the idea that we have progress in our economy and society. These booms are like the β€œflag standards of old” carried by armies. The message is that the troops are here and victory will soon follow.
