View from above at 3m.

This has become the biggest Technic project I have embarked on (I still have to complete the pneumatic setup)

With the Y guying the luffing jib is remarkably stable at 3m height. The jib angle and hook can be controlled easily and very light loads can be lifted.

Here's what the structure looks like after modifications

The original winch and L motor is removed, which means I can relocate the sbrick to give more space for the counterweight to retract.

Here the front winch operates the main crane hook, the middle operates the jib hook, the rear operates the angle of the luffing jib.

One, two or all three winches can be engaged via the sliding switches.

This is my MOD for a total of three winches operating off one L motor (one sbrick channel). Beneath the spools are 6 D cell batteries for the counterweight.

Here you can see most of the exterior changes I made.

For counterweight I did not use a lead weight, I used old batteries (100's laying around from use on Lego projects)

You can also see position of PF switch for raising/lowering the boom.

At small to moderate extension, ~80deg angle, with counterweight  (~800g) extended... the winch lifts just over 1kg. At the height shown the winch started to pull itself apart and exploded into a mess of string (a 20-minute mess of knots to unravel)

Zoom of heavy duty actuator. The L motor is built into the actuator and the Technic gearbox really helps to prevent the actuator tearing itself apart.
Submitted by nigel1975 PRO Sept. 3, 2018
When I purchased the instructions it came with a separate LDD for heavy duty actuator. I did not build the original actuator so cannot comment how they compare.

To save space I used an sbrick for four of the PF functions: rotate, boom extend, winch and counter weight.

Enough room left to squeeze in another winch for Y section later...
