    11' wide is a real pain. They are stout old crane, a precast concrete place by me has a couple of them. Nobody is real keen on driving them anywhere. They actually sub out to a crane outfit with large all terrains, most of their work outside of town, because no one wants to drive them.

    In other words, I'm probably not a buyer. Having only 110' of stick isn't real handy, there's a lot of booms laying around out there, its just you would have to go find it.

    I don't have much of a use in my area, or line of work for a lattice. Its too much work to set it up and tear it down for a single pick or just a few. If you have a long term job, it will have much better capacity vs a hydraulic of the same size.

    Site work, long duration or Yard Work cranes these days, narrowing niche market. That mashed up Conex loader/unloader owner on a previous post may find it as useful for a spell!!

    Good luck to them on that one. Fairly recent Ritchies sales up here saw a 125 linkbelt conventional and a 150 ton Lorraine bring 10000.00 each . Both were good running ready to work. Sad to see as they sure do a good days work for not much cost.
