    Side mounted crane for the 6000 lb trailer

    Since my other small trailer has 2 rear mounted cranes on it I decided that this one needed a crane as well but since the bed tilts the crane had to be mounted on the side independent of the bed

    The manual crane was found inthe scrap yard I extended it a few years ago to make it taller then we modified the boom from a 3000 lb engine crane so that it could fold completely vertical
