MoreFactory - Does the Crane have any functionality?

Dose that huge Crane thing only aesthetic, or does it do something?

As far as I can tell it is ornamental at this time but as he is still very much in the process of iterating on Moar for update 3 that may very well change in the future.

On a side note: have anyone had luck running Moar Factory 1.04, for me right now it is causing crash on startup.
