Knuckle Boom Crane |
Here's a knuckle boom crane that I grafted onto a 1951 Int'l truck. I slid the flat bed back to make room, strengthened the frame, and revised the hydraulics to have enough volume to operate the crane.
It came in real handy when I lifted my "new to me" lathe off of the shipper's trailer.
I spent $2500 for the crane, $500 for shipping, and then around $500 in misc parts.... maybe more, maybe less, I didn't track those parts very well.
I already had the truck, so this just makes the truck more useful.
Seeing it work after all that hard work was priceless!
To All, I had some website issues from our web hosting company 1-21-15 through 1-26-15, so if you tried to go there for more information it probably didn't work. We are back live again!
