Yeah way too much for that truck like Steve said , it's a peanut picker not even close to a tree meek, buy a Palfinger, additionally you can take and challenge the test if you own your own crane don't need 1000's of hours as an apprentice, you in Ontario?I certainly understand where you guys are coming from but there are a few points I should clear up.
First I've never dealt with altec but I did get a rough estimate of $300,000 (CDN) for this unit. That's a tough pill to swallow for what it is, at least in my mind.
2nd in Canada there are drastically different laws on what cranes we can legally operate. As far as I understand I could not operate a 40 ton kboom without investing 1000's of hrs as an apprentice. So these smaller kbooms are the only real option for some of us.
When comparing palfinger, effer, Fassi etc. you need to compare apples to apples.
Im kind of in limbo on whether a similiar setup would be profitable. In your opinion is this type of set up seem worth it?
