Crane addvise needed

Recommended Posts

Hi all i need to sort a dielema out, i need a crane piped for a grab and rotateor to go on the rear of a 12 tonne truck, the jobs in hand are secondery extraction, tidying up timber on harvesting sites (i.e all the odds and sods that are left over like 4 tonne 4.9, 3 tonne 3.7, 5 tonne 2.5 O/S, chip wood etc) not enough of each product to send a wagon and drag, all so need to be able to move big lumps of hardwood but that wont be to often, so taking in to consideration that a 4.9 X 400mm dia stitka log will weigh over a tonne and a 3.1 x 700 beech log will weigh approx 3 tonne. so to take every thing out of the picture and be self reliant i think a tlmber crane like a Botex or FMV is out of the question so that leaves me with the cranes manufactured by atlas, hiab HMF and palfinger, most of these cranes will lift around 3 tonne but will be slower than a purpose built timber crane, looking for addvise on cranes like atlas etc, what i need is something that when all extensions are closed is around the 4 mtr mark and when in use with either 1 or 2 extensions needs to be from 5.5 mtr - 6.5 mtr has any one got any expierance and knowlage they could share on this type of crane, pros and cons, which ones are a bit faster than others and any info would be greatly welcomed,

I just picked up a terex ( same as atlas) 105.2  which is also piped for a grab/rotator and has flip up legs , also came with a diesel power pack, remote with charger and its still in test all for £1500. Its going on one of the trucks, seemed a lot of  kit for the money, they are about .IMG_2752.thumb.JPG.2f5072f92f5f2c88f1953064b26b0bd8.JPG

that looks tidy and yes its a lot of kit for the money very cheap, but that would be a bit big for my job 101 is about as big as i can go due to weight of crane and outriggers,
