Cranes on a jake so everything is as normal, its just plugged into a spool .
The hookloader has an extended drawbar so I can put a chipper or winch on aswell at the same time.
I plan to put the farmi crane and legs onto the valmet at some point, it's an amazing crane and legs set up.

Cheers, it's great having some nice kit again after I had to sell my stuff a few years ago in the recession.

Re: Crane tastic

Nice kit, Mr Blair.

Do all your cranes need annual testing for insurance purposes like my workshop kit does?
