Gerlinger Straddle Carrier

What you see here is a classic Gerlinger straddle carrier. This machine is designed to work in lumber mills. It will straddle a bundle of lumber, clamp it with the rails at the bottom and drive off with it quickly. These were particularly popular before the advent of the forklift, and remain useful where lumber needs to be transported substantial distances by the bundle such as to port dock.
