Tokyo Cranes are orange cranes that help with construction.
In Tokyo Mater, Lightning takes Mater through a shortcut through a building site. This awakes one Crane who hits some oil drums causing oil to spill, Mater then learns how to drift. But it didn't seem to stop two more Cranes wake up and hit into pipes. After Mater notices that the road is out, Lightning shoots him into a pipe that blasts him ahead of Kabuto.
