Nicely done. I saw some equipment similar to this designed to be kids toys. There were handles with triggers to open and close the claws, cranks with fine cord to manuver the booms. I believe there were dump trucks, cranes and a front end loader with grapple hooks in the set, perhaps about 1/12th scale. I am positive the kids loved them.
