How can I tell if my crane is an HD crane?

When I bought my Kessler Crane 8/12 I bought the BASIC bundle, not the HD bundle(http://www.kesslercrane.com/product-p/100040.htm) so I'd imagine I don't have the HD crane, but I don't see any manufacturing differences between my crane (100028) and the HD crane (100040).
I ask because some accessories on this website have different parts for HD cranes.

Nate,

The difference is the style of control Rod you have for your crane.

The BASIC crane had a T-bar style control rod where the links were attached together with a thumb screw and wing nut.

The HD crane features a square control rod that uses cross bars similar to the main crane rail. The two sections are attached with the cross bars and tightened with 2 thumb screws.
