    Re: 5th Wheel and Mast

    The mast is made by Edwards and the caster has to be made by a custom fabrication shop, any one that you can convince one to do it. You get in and out of the machine between the cage and the mast.

    Your best luck for that type of arrangement will be with a Blueberry grower or maybe an Avocado grower, in Florida . They do grow Blueberries in Ga but they spray allot.
