    Hi everyone,

    Here are some shots of some new Groves I caught a local dealer.
    This is also the first time I've seen a boom dolly in use here in PA.

    haha im with you tiny, every thing we run 75 ton and above has a dolly for the boom. Although id prefer if it didnt... especially in the 350-550 ton range.

    I ran a 540E a couple weeks ago....Smooth machine...I especially like how they closed up the fender wells....seems like I was ALWAYS banging my shins on them dam things...got a buddy running a 700(in the 60t version)....he says its a smooth running rig also....They got me running a 75t(80t??) with the tilting cab....what a SWEET rig!!.....but then again...If its a Grove....it IS a SWEET rig!!
