I know a little bit about k-booms. I was the 1st in MI to run a grapple saw truck. It was a effer with a mecanil saw. I ran it basically 4 seasons. I just sold it. It was great but parts and service is less than desirable. I can't even imagine now with the covid issue's it'd be month's for par 20200715_192647.jpg 20200916_121826.jpg ts to come out of Italy.

I bought a 65t palfinger and have not looked back. Palfinger tiffin is 1.5hrs from me so it's a no brainer. Honestly whichever dealer is closest to you is probably going to be the best Crane for you. I demoed a 655 effer last year, the reach is awesome and better than the palfinger or pm/bik k-booms in the 65t class. But the gmt saw is a joke. If you haven't ran or seen a mecanil in person you wont understand. Here's my palfinger 20210408_150552.jpg 20210403_113553.jpg
