60-foot ringer crane in the 1980s.

I got the impression that this was the first ringer crane ever designed. Or at least the largest at its time.

After it built the Luling Bridge, it was bought by the contractor for the Copper River Bridge in South Carolina. After that bride was done, the US Army Core of Engineers bought it.

Can't wait to see more pictures of this platform Ringer. The US Army Corp Of Engineers owns it now. Called Hercules

In 2013, Hercules helped clean up the Marseilles Dam barge allision.
