Mike Larson 60' diameter PLATFORM-RINGER, similar to the RINGER that went with a 4600 Series-4 crane, but with the crane replaced with a platform, winches, and counterweight replacing the crane itself. It was designed for applications like this, in which the a company was going to use the machine in one place and didn't need the crane itself.
