Yes, this is a big Hendrickson tandem from 1927. Hendrickson' famous tandem rear drive was introduced the year before. I'm not a crane expert, but I think Jack is right that this one is a Universal. Hamish had this 1st. Both of these photos appeared on the Hendrickson Facebook page.

Any information on the super single wheels on the back axles of the crane?

Rocky, I can only tell you that they were not uncommon on the rear of trucks with hard rubber tires in the 1920's. Towards the late '20's we would start seeing the large pneumatic super single tires.

I had this on the Truck and Crane.
Pride of the Calumet Crane Service, this early Universal crane is mounted on an innovative Hendrickson truck.
This factory photo shows the tandem drive, heavy frame, and outriggers. Apparently Calumet Crane Service was owned,
 by H. B. Olney, General Contractor. Universal cranes were one of the early pioneers of mounting cranes on trucks for mobility.
Magnus Hendrickson was an inventive Swiss engineer, starting his own company in Chicago in 1913,
and with his sons designed a tandem suspension unit in 1926 using the now famous equalizing beam with center pivot to distribute,
 the load evenly to the rear axles.
