    Tilt able cab dolly

    After I dug out my old cab dolly I added some modifications. Since I work mostly by myself I add two 2x4s with some heavy duty hinges to mount the cab to. This is so I can tilt the cab up to work on the bottom. I had a little trouble getting my crane’s legs under my dolly so I ordered some new wheels that are a lot taller. Now the crane fits. After I lagbolted the cab to the hindged 2x4s I was able to use my crane to tilt the cab on it’s nose. I unbolt only one 2x4 at a time to work the whole cab bottom.
