We obtained this as part of a bulk lot. Please help me figure out which set it is from. A Web search found many cranes, but not like this one. Could be a MOC ;-)

  • Welcome to Bricks.SE This looks like quite a contraption. Would how you got this help us figure out who might have been the builder?

  • Is this LEGO? I can't tell from the picture... does it say LEGO on the studs?

Based on the pieces in the photo is looks like the remains of set# 4957 Ferris Wheel.

They had apparently built one of the secondary/alternative models from the set.
