Your very own crane

Recommended Posts


1.5 ton at 22 meters and only 21 meters tall, not really suitable for "big takedowns". It would, however, pick up big lumps from back gardens, but thats about all. Still it does look like good value, so far.

Do you "tip tie" everything Rupe


I see where your coming from!


Ideally with a crane you would tip tie everything. But in this case where the crane isn't tall enough, you could butt tie, but that would overload (risk of) the crane. So you would have to rig normally then pick the peices up off the ground with the crane.


Which is what I meant by "pick up big lumps from back gardens". So it would be ok for lifting branches/lumps etc. but not for the actual dismantling of the tree. In my opinion.


Interestign thing to own though!!

Yes you do tip tie, but what I'm getting at is this thing lifts 1.5 t at 22m which means you could tip tie quite a long way down just above the balance point and take down things a little taller than the crane.


We're not all Reg Coates so if you did go slightly below the balance point there wouldn't be a jolt it would just "gracefully " flip over :laugh1:


What I'm saying is the crane could take down whatever most trees most of us come across :001_smile:
