The main reason I chose Fassi is because that is what a local crane shop deals with...15-20 minutes away. So it makes it easy for service etc. Plus I feel some of the electronics are better on fassi. This is only the 3rd fassi crane, with a grapple saw, that I know about in North America. The first one that this shop is doing. So I expect some complication, but I have faith my local shop will figure them out.Look forward to the build. It's going to be awesome. Why did you choose the Fassi over the Palfinger or Effer? I am looking at buying or building one as well and wonder which one to choose.
Palfinger definitely has more knowledge of tree mek builds, and seem to have higher load charts.
Ps the local shop used to deal in palfinger cranes but switched to fassi.
