This was one I did last weekend what a job getting in on the trailer had a bucket as a fuel tank with the pipes extended and dropped in😩 and both back tyres slack, oh and that low on hydraulic oil could barely steer it but anyone how has ever loaded one will know the front gets airborne on the way up the ramps, and passing down with rain

Delivered my old 860 to a forum member had to reverse blind side into a lane to unload which had a row of sharp rocks to keep you of the grass

Some pictures of our Volvo FH540 on the move with some plant and a tidy Scania v8 580 that normally moves our bigger stuff.

This was the second truck I owned with the third trailer, I fitted the crane on my homemade subframe which also had rear stabilisers but the crane didn’t have remote control so was a pain to load stuff by yourself

A couple of months ago Allelys had both 1000,s and the 100 592.jpg 527 (2).jpg 593.jpg 524 (2).jpg on the Isle of White to lift a catermaran into the water and I took 1 of the jibs down, the whole set up took nearly a month to do from getting things ready in Allelys yard to landing on the dockyard on the IOW to doing the lift to getting back home. The actual lift took 30mins

Second steer in the right place(y)the rear axle is set back 2’ so can get deep pin trailers, makes getting into tight places with the low loader on fun:oops:
