Huge cranes complete journey from China to Tacoma

The News Tribune – by Adam Lynn

They’ve arrived.

Four huge cranes bound for the Port of Tacoma cruised into Commencement Bay on Friday afternoon.

The cranes, built in China, are 434 feet high with their booms extended. They crossed the Pacific aboard a re-purposed tanker called the Zhen Hua 28. 

The cranes will be part of a reconfigured Pier 4, which eventually will hold eight of the behemoths and give the Port of Tacoma the ability to handle so-called post-Panamex vessels, among the largest container-carrying ships in the world.

Don’t worry if you missed the Zhen Hua’s entry into Commencement Bay on Friday. The next four cranes are expected to arrive some time next year.

  1. So these sub quality inferior cluster fuks couldn’t be built here in America with USA labor and materials supporting our economy. They are probably made from some of the Twin Tower steel that went over rather quickly. I got a problem with this.

    1. MY…first thought?

      These will be used in the coming nuke’ False Flag cleanup. They “just happened to arrive in time..and are, ironically, made from the steel of the Twin Towers, lost in another devastating terrorist attack…..”

      What sayest thou?

  2. probably built over there because this government has Fked this country up so bad , that only sweat shop labor is competitive , where our labor over here is not .( thats their story not mine) because we all know that if they saved a million dollars having them be made elsewhere , that 1 million in savings never makes it to the customers table .. it just ends up as more profit for the fat cats
    plus ,, many companies just look at the bottom dollar and not quality or the possible longevity of equipment like this

    Ive seen some really cheap ass crap coming from Italy, for steel mills over here , and let me tell you ..its sad ass shit , but the mills buy it, because its “cheaper” stupid dolts , if it lasts 1 more year than that cheap ass crap it payed for itself

    but no one, not even North American companies want to pay for things to be built here anymore , and their list of excuses are sad and complete BS

  3. We don’t have the resources to manufacture these cranes here, they were all transferred to China, 15 years ago. Our manufacturing resources are nil, all part of the global agenda.

    We’re lucky if we can manufacture a swing set here.

    The Chinese took everything,put it all into overseas containers, stole it, then defecated on American soil before they left with the stolen goods.

  4. I do have an assault rolling pin.
    I have used it.
    Seriously, I have!
    It was what was available at the time, of all things…
    LOL

    PS. I almost had an assault Chevy 350 head.

    1. Ooops!
      I thought I was still on The Word From The Trenches page.
      I’ll use one of them there POS Chinese cranes to drop these comments at their destination.

      That’s “Mr. Dumbass.”
