Project Description

The Lumbering Contraption

The Lumbering Contraption was a Five Ton Crane group project, inspired from a design by Jo Slota, and built for the 2008 Santa Rosa Great West End Handcar Regatta. This giant hamster wheel for humans was designed to run on train tracks and stands 10′ tall and 20′ long. The Contraption can accommodate four runners in cage, with room for a sexy chicken to sit out front in the pilot’s chair.
