Friend's new old toy

Post by Scott » Sun Jan 06, 2013 11:43 pm

My friend picked this up yesterday. He went a week earlier with the truck, and trailer, but the Riggers did not bring enough machine to lift it. It's just a 8 ft bed, but will give full 250 ton anywhere along the brake. Weighs in at 36,800 lbs.. They used a 300 HP dozer to push it in place.

Interesting move. We had metro come in a couple of times to move equipment for us and that is quite the lift truck. One of our machines was built on granite and they had a ~3' of steel plates stacked on the rear of that machine for counter-balance.

no neat sig line
I am unique, just like everyone else.
