I wouldn't sell that truck. It is perfect for day to day tree work. Close in the sides and stuff it with brush. In my opinion the only way to make that truck better would be to rear mount the loader for the ability to back down a drive and reach over a fence. Customers wouldn't gripe about the size of the truck on their drive it would cut out a forwarder on a lot of jobs in my market. I have a chip truck I would trade you with some cash. if your interested pm me and we will talk
I replaced the truck with another grapple with a solid body. I don't need any more chip trucks at this point, just need money. Thanks for the offer.
This is what replaced the GMC truck, well its hiding behind the Japanese white pine tree.


Truck is still for sale. I have been so busy, I have not listed or updated anything about selling it. It needs to go now to make room for some other equipment.

What is the condition of the chassis (underbelly)? Does it have much or noticeable salt damage/corrosion? What is the overall condition of the boom (pins/bushings, rotation bearing, etc.)?
Under the truck is good, no real rust (just light surface rust) Boom is good, it does drift a little. Some pistons have been rebuilt. Rotation bearing and movement is good.

Truck is still available. Buyer backed out, couldn't come up with funds.

The truck needs a new home talk to me.
