In the wake of a new construction schedule, DEMAG CC-8800—the world’s fourth-largest crawler crane—has begun work on the $1.66 billion Las Vegas’ MSG Sphere. While the crane is reported to weigh 869 tons, an 850-ton counterweight is slated to be added for stability. Do you feel these measures will prove successful in lifting the 182-ton center compression ring for the domed roof?

They wouldn't be bringing it in if Demag didn't think it was up to the task. Assuming the 182 tonnes (+/-) is within the operating envelope for the height and reach required, then it should work just fine. Though this lift would be quite the sight....I remember the massive crane brought into one site I was working on to erect reactor vessels for a refinery expansion. Not a little lift.
