    Thats a lot of expendable income to make a 5 million euro spider and put on a free show through out a town. Must’ve been either really fucking scary or awesomely awesome.

    Does it need a crane to walk too?

    Clayton

    No crane needed, once it’s off it’s trailer it’s all metal animal, it walks and spits water out of it ass ( Abdomin ) 🙂 a fine bit of mechanics !
