    Default Booms and cranes.

    Ian Steppler has a video on utube of his ezyloader crane operating. Does anyone else have any booms or cranes they use? Thoughts? How much do you lift and how far from the side of the truck or trailer? Any homemade stuff out there?

    I like the self leveling option on the one I have, I re set it with a push of a button, keep that in mind if your buying one

    I have a jib boom on an F550. I can load 4 way pallets -8frame 2 deep out to about 2 rows from the truck. I can load 12 8 frame deeps with honey real close to the truck if I go slow.
    4 highs fall off the forks and make a big mess.

    I think a really neat one like yours is a few years out for me Ian, however I am grateful for all the stuff you share about your business.

    Steve, if you're having boom dreams don't forget the aj100 from Australia. Post #20 on the last linked thread makes some interesting comparisons.
