#57 Equipment: Material Handler - Magcrane

Description:  Seen above is a material handler at a scrap metal yard.  This material handler is in a special category of handlers that are called magcranes.  This is due to the fact that it uses a magnet to lift up the metal.  The magnet is the round brown colored disk hanging from the red boom.  The operator has the ability to turn the magnet on and off, and thus pick up and drop off ferromagnetic metal loads.
