  1. I know someone else has already shared my post on here but thought I'd just post again in the cranes and mewps section to make it more visible. Thanks for your interest.
  2. Bob I've gone for a 6 wheeler to keep the whole thing as short and light as possible. Have have to upgrade the front axle to 10t the take the weight of the crane. That will leave me with approx 6t payload on the back. I don't have any experience with hgvs so have had to collect as much info as I can and make the best decisions I can based on it. Hopefully I hadn't made too many mistakes [emoji16]
  3. The truck, crane and head are costing £270k. I am hoping to charge £1500/day.
  4. With the head on it can lift about 500kgs. Still a very large branch compared to what a climber might take off. That is maxed out though and I think we'll likely be taking much smaller pieces off at full reach. The speed should still make it much quicker than a climber though
  5. What model mog is that please? Any idea how much that Bandit weighs on the front?
