Buucky is a Liebherr LR11000 crawler crane owned by Buckner's. It is the biggest crane on site after Kong. Buucky was fully assembled and erected on May 18 2021. Against all expectations Buucky's first lift was SN15, as it was supposed to be moved back to the shipyard. So the future purpose may be, to replace Bluto in lifting Starships on to the suborbital pads. But more likely than that, it will lift GSE tanks and Cryo tank shells in place. Biig cranes are always fun...
