Discussion in 'Crane Use' started by Gerasimek, Aug 20, 2015.
Hey Bo can i ask why you chose the 40002 crane and now you are going to the 63002?
Actually I began interest in these cranes about 3 years ago but didn't have the money or was not sold on the concept yet till I saw Glenn's video and I decided to go visit him and fell in love with the concept, safety level and a smaller crew and most importantly not having to rely on an expensive climber. But I wanted the 80 series at that time which I couldn't afford. I toyed with the idea for a while and decided that I would get a 63 if I get one but that meant waiting an extra year or two or so to have the money since I was going to pay cash as I did for the 40002. Now in May of 2017 I do have some extra cash and also a real estate investing opportunity that I can make a good chunk of cash in a flip situation that would make most of the $190k price difference between the two units since I am going to a new truck with an Automatic trans. . When I bought the 40002 I thought I would get used to manual, but it is not happening. Therefore now, I have to have a an additional driver on the team that defeats the purpose of a smaller crew. Plus, the only guy who I trust to drive this crane is a retired sanitation employee of the city of Atlanta who is 60+ years old with a bad knee. Since this will be my first and last crane and this is what I intend to retire with, I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade. Now, here I have one of the best deals of the year for someone who is serious about a 40002.
Do you know of anyone who is looking for a setup like mine?
What does the chart look like?
For you what is the biggest difference between the two cranes?
Whats rolling weight versus allowable/payload capacity of truck?
I'm working on securing financing for a 50. I'm not looking for smaller or the cab over. I was curious. Financing has been difficult because it's a starter biz for me. I'm starting to feel like it's not gonna work out.
Steve, I did look at 50 but I wasn't too crazy about the configuration and the reach wasn't that much more. As far as the difference between the two. The most important thing is the 50% more lifting capacity when not using the Mecanil and secondly the 10 feet extra reach. I definitely recommend the rear mounted for up to 40 ton but passed 40 there will be too much weight on the rear axles. With the rear mount, you get full reach without taking a chance of dropping dead stuff on the cab.
As far as full reach lifting capacity they all pick up the same. The manual pull out sets the same limit for even the 200 ton.
If you are going to go bigger than 40 i would go to 60 or 80. The 50 is the nomansville. Do look atvtge chart and the configuration of the 50 carefully. I don't remember it exactly but it is real wierd.
I think mine weighs around 48k. I have to check with Tiffin for the built sheet.
I should have about an extra 10k in payload.
That is a nice one. I can't believe you found a truck that year with so few miles. Like a needle in a haystack! I can't imagine you'll have any trouble at all selling it.
Are you selling your tree grapple saw truck?
Yes, I want to buy the 63 ton.
Mine has been used only 4 hours.
Can you post a load chart and pic of the unit
To don't have a load chart, but you can find that on the Palfinger site.
I'll send a couple more shots. When I tried to send multiple shots, it gave me an error message.
Here is another shot.
Sorry that I have to load them one at a time.
Let me know if you want more shots
Please send me whatever info you can on this unit. My email is email@example.com
I am a sales rep for a Palfinger dealer in Ontario, Canada, and may have a few guys interested in this unit.
Madbeaver...is it still for sale? Someone from Tiffin was supposed to call me back in May and I have heard nothing?
