    Jim, Turning circle is pretty damn good - slightly reduced due to the large offroad spec tyres.

    Chris, this is purely for my own treework. I wont even haul for other companies like I used to - no point in helping the competition.

    Cool mate, I'm also hoping to have a small chip truck with a crane later this year. As handy as it could be I probably won't go a 4wd, there is a 4wd chip truck for sale locally with a 12 cube bin but I think the extra height could be an access limiting factor to our regular suburban sites.

    So yeah. It took me a while. I moved house again and renovated a new house. Installed a woodchip hot water heating system. Bought and opened a nightclub. Bought another 4x4 chip truck. Had a another child. Did some treework. Played a few gigs and did a few parties.

    Anyway, got the crane operational today. I'll go shift a load of beech tomorrow to shake it down.Click image for larger version.

    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.
