We had planned to use the crawler crane to make the swap, but halfway in mechanical problems took the crane out of service. So instead we set the new motor with the trackhoe.

Have used a tow truck on occasion or a front end loader with a hay bailing spike.

I use a Buddy's Forklift,the side to side movement helps allot.Don't and cant take the hatch off just about go's vertical.



I would figure the backhoe would have to much movement at one time ,be kinda jerky?

Our service trucks have Autocranes on them. It's almost like cheating.

So it would be safe to assume you go deer hunting with a bazooka?
