I got an email today as well from Palumbo rep. It said crane due onsite next week. Also 90% sold, just a few of the 201 piles are left to be completed
On site doesn't mean installed..

Yep I’ll agree with that. I only said on-site however.

Looks too small to be a crane base

Could be wrong

There doesn't seem to be much motor up there - is it powered by a big 3-phase extension cord?

It's electric. If you look two shots up you'll see a giant green box - that's the generator.
