    Well, we had a small tamrock Commando 150 drilling rigg strapped to a pallet.
    That pallet was carried with a Volvo L150 wheelloader.
    Pallet strapped to the forks.(steel chains):cool:

    It was considered safe, as the operator of the Commando had a 30feet cable controlling the rig.
    This was done to reach high enough with the rigg in a road cut.
    (UNPROFOR, Bosnia Herzegovina, 1995)
    U know in war, everything is legal..:rolleyes:

    To your question:
    No, i would not allow anybody to be inside that exc.:mad:
