Thirty seven hundred each

Each of these concrete counterweights weighs 3700 kilograms. Which is 8157 pounds for you non-metric folks.

This crane is set up over a walkway in the near by city of Baden, and I couldn't help feeling a little bit uneasy walking under it. If walking under ladders was considered bad luck back in the day, just imagine what this sort of potential calamity would merit.
