    more fun with knucklebooms

    Good to know. I have heard that before as well and sometimes do not fully understand why not upside your signal? Do you have spools on the jib and main as well as the track? Or just jib spools? I guess from a basic resistance a line drop calculation, why is it wrong to run a heavy gauge wire on...

    more fun with knucklebooms

    I have a 14 PM 100 with reels on the main and Jib. I have seen these setup two different ways. There is a fellow named Wes running a 100 on the east coast that is setup near identical to mine, no additional reels or folding stack, runs a 280. Canary has a folding stack I have not seen before...

    Load Cell

    Curious if any of you use a load cell between your jib and hook on a kboom to get an accurate load reading on your bigger pics. If so, who do you use and do they have an intro model that won’t break the bank? Thank you!

    Stab type or type x is what you have on your truck and most trucks from bik come with twins up front. A rupee is a set of wing extenders like your crane comes outfittedwothand the rear usually has. We are deciding which to go with. Yes there is a lot of space up there. I need room for the...

    No that’s part of the install with the saw. We are not going to shorten the frame though and plan to keep it extended as most TS are set up that way. I’m trying to make a decision to either put a stab or type x on, or another set of type Es are going on like the rear end. I can’t see why a Stab...

    Ah hell I figured with that they’d be even more interested in waiting your time! I feel for you guys out that way having to deal with that. What a waste!

    It was worse than a border inspection. Made me never want to drive a truck out there.... Heard about the crazy taxes as well!

    I really appreciate the insight. I learned a lot talking about stability with different outfitters. I guess the time it gets tricky is when the truck was designed to have a trailer on a short wheelbase with a cab mount, and no nose stabilizer working in front of your outriggers without the...

    Well it’s been a bit since I have been on here but the ball is finally rolling. I initially had Brad at Westminister put together a cost on there 72002e they had sitting their used. Spent a few weeks traveling around with work and trying to find a solid tri axle and 20k front deck over to...

    Sorry if I was confusing in my initial post. What I was eluding too was a few of the Fassi and SP units pretty much had a human to computer interface in the turret with a 15" monitor, and it was overwhelming how much was involved. Maybe it was only for the trade show? I simply don't want to buy...
