Cranes are machines that were invented for a variety of purposes, from digging to lifting to carrying. Cranes have been used twice as a weapon by the ARC team on creatures. The first time was in Episode 2.3, when Abby Maitland used a JCB digging crane against a Smilodon. The second time was in Episode 3.7 on a Dracorex in a junkyard. This crane is used to lift cars around the junkyard.
