If your dream featured this bird on the wing, it is a good omen, but if it was on the ground, it signifies troubles of your own making. The meaning of a mechanical crane in a dream depends on the action. If you were operating it, you can expect a promotion in your job or an increase in status through widened responsibilities, whichever applies; if you observed the crane lifting, it signifies a relief from worries or a solution to troublesome problems. A broken crane is a warning that you are in danger of biting off more than you can chew. Better reconsider.
