    Crane down

    So did the climber think the lift was too big or the operator? Must've been a mad scramble to get to the ground after the cut was made.

    Yes it is the truck you're thinking of and yes it could unload an entire load in one shot it's got a lot of balls.

    Custom Knuckle Boom Designed Specifically for Tree Work

    Thanks, we had one of our main foremen, my brother leave to pursue a career as a crane operator. My father is retiring at the end of this year so we have a lot of equipment and not enough operators and we're looking to downsize. It's a shame too because this truck was built from the ground up...

    PM 100 Crane Westen Star tractor mount

    No, it's a fully hydrolic removable jib, five sections on the main and four on the jib. It will reach a height of 92' and 80' straight sideways. You can get two manual fly jib extentions to take it to 101'.

    We've got a 44 ton PM mounted on a maneuverable cabover Mack for sale. Better axle loading ratios and a better price.

    @Dragonslayer Thanks. I've been thinking about trying it out for a while know but old habits and such. I'm having trouble finding the Hitch Hiker. Everywhere seems to be sold out.; I guess it's a popular item.

    @96coal449 Thanks. What do you think about SRT ascent, DRT descent? From what I gather the whole basal anchor/ retrieval rope thing seems like more trouble than it's worth.

    Saddle Gear

    I've never tried SRT but I have a basic understanding of how it works. Why would you say it saves so much effort? I know you're ascending a foot for every foot of rope but aren't you working twice as hard as on DRT? Also what are the advantages while descending? Sorry I know this is probably...
