TULSA, Oklahoma -- There was a little something extra in the downtown skyline Sunday morning. Bennett Steel's biggest crane was on the job at the AT&T building on 5th and Elgin.

The phone company is replacing its back-up generators. The crane was used to lift generators on and off the roof.

The lift took about two hours and all of the streets surrounding it were closed as a result.

The massive machine can lift 600 tons and can reach 500 Feet into the sky.

Bennett Steel says it's the largest hydraulic crane in the entire state. It's so big, it takes 13 big rigs to move it from job to job.
