    I'm jealous, I'd about kill for a little drag line like that.

    I don't think I should do my exhaust like you did yours though. With twin Detroits and a straight pipe on one, I'm already wearing ear plugs AND ear muffs......

    I guess the only saving grace for the P&H is that it's so simple, other than a couple of rigger seals and hoses, no places for hydraulic leaks which is nice. I'll eventually get around to new cable, who knows when that'll be.

    Yeah alsk , keep in mind with a conventional truck crane you have a pretty versatile piece of equipment .

    Good for pickin ,diggin & bustin :)

    Look around & see about finding a drag and clam shell bucket & wrecking ball for the P&H .

    Possibilities are endless with the rite attachments for the job .

    P&H got a fairlead on it ?
