    I as many others, having been watching and benefitting from "The JLG 40F boom lift dilemma" thread for many years. It is now up to 73 pages and is filled with a huge amount of valuable information that is not readily available anywhere else. I began printing it out but at page 4 I had 122 paper pages so decided that is not really an option and that did not include any pictures. Is there any other way to save pages such as this. I would hate to see all this information lost in the event of a major site crash. Thanks in advance.

    If you have Chrome, go to print page>Change Destination>Save as PDF. Edit: of course i didn't actually box the Change button.

    Don't see why it can't be saved as PDF and then transferred to a flash drive.

    Would be helpful to have the option of 40 messages per page like the old site.
