    My knuckleboom hooklift mecanil sg160 build

    The build up/fabrication should be starting on this project soon, so I figured I'd start this thread on it. I should be able to post a fair amount of pictures of the process, hopefully, since the crane shop is about 20 minutes away. Unfortunately the crane was only shipped out from Italy on...

    International 4300 "super singles"?

    With my setup I rarely venture on lawn, but sometimes you have no choice. I'm finding that the stock tires on an international 4300 are murderous to lawns...mostly ruts. Has anyone put on wider front tires and/or super singles on the rear (in place of duallies)? If so how effective are...

    Poly level...any thoughts on tree applications with this.?

    To me this seems it may have some application for hollow trees (adding support, filling voids, keeping out moisture, and probably wouldn't damage saw if later removed). Just seems more durable and structural then normal window foam. But blowing the tree apart may be a problem.
