    Default Compact grapple truck build thread

    So after reading the other thread, it motivated me to build another grapple truck. This will be my fourth, and hopefully last.

    Today I rushed off and bought the crane. Not my first choice, it's not a forestry loader with guarded pipework or upper mount rams. But it was in extremely nice condition, and a bargain in exchange for folding type money.

    Next on the list is a decent chassis to mount it on.

    Ed all I can ask is where do you get the motivation?? I could never even begin to accept such an undertaking.

    On another note what are the specs of that boom??

    Going to keep a close eye on this thread. I have been throwing around the idea of a trailer similar to what baileys sells. Looking forward to seeing this thing take shape!
