While you're at it, check out the outdoor fork truck video. It would fit in the tool talk series.

Yep, the yard crane is a cracker! When I emigrated to AUS from the US in 87, the first two timber yards I worked in, one a small outfit and the other Weyerhaeuser Australia, had yard cranes...I'd never seen anything like it, and asked why they did not arrange their packs of timber for forklift access, to get the answer...''cause that's the way we do it..." They would block stack packs of timber 3 or 4 deep and use the yard crane to lift out, up and over the packs in front...It was painfully slow and dangerous. The job required a dogman to set the slings, and the packs would frequently turn to unruly bundles as the stickers, if they were even there, snapped. It would not be allowed in today's OH&S world...I was able to turn the small outfit around...and then I started talking Dexion racking...that was equally difficult, and today, these machines are as Kurtis says, rare as hens teeth, but very flexible in their use.
