    I thought I remembered seeing a link on here for a swing cab Manitou that even had a winch attachment. Anyone have it??

    If I don't have my alzhimers kicking in, I think that they even made a work basket with machine controls in it for use as a man lift! I was checking them out back 6-7 years ago when I was looking for a man lift with better off road ability. I remember that it was pricey but it sure is very versatile!

    When i asked the guy at con-expo he said he could get me into one for about $140,000 If i recall. I shortly there after lost interest in it and went over the national crane booth.

    Yep, there was a contractor around here who had/has one, i remember seeing it in a magazine, it had radio remote control so that the operator could stand on a roof etc and have a better view, it even drive in first gear on remote!
