What exactly is that thing? It doesn't look like a typical big hook.

It sorta looks like a piledriver to me, but not the same as others that I've seen.

While the German language was one of my subjects in high school, I was never very competent in it.  My German teacher was, I think, Scottish, and always referred to me as "Herr Todt!", rather than Herr Toth.

However, my long-forgotten instincts somehow kicked-in on your second offering, and a quick google translation pretty-well confirmed my interpretation of it.   Goldth

well back to square one  , using the original crane body was a bad mistake  it was six ways to sunday off square built the extension  boom  and it was so far off I gave up and started off making  with a new body even the swivel was off requiring me to set it up on mill to square it up.
