See comments here from Hydrocon family and fans - /vehicle_53928-Hydrocon-Highlander-1955.html .

"What happened to Scottish industry?" is another question alongside. In 1903 Glasgow was the 3rd largest city in the world.

DSL it's your duty to quickly learn all Hydrocon models as a proud citizen of Scotland even if they are now mostly memory....

Very good cranes in their time and quite a few still working now , believe they were the first all hydraulic operation cranes .
Cheap cranes from the far east were the death of Hydrocon ( and othe UK crane makers )
