    Rafters are so much easier to set when hanging rather than on forks. That's why I've always did it with my A frame.

    Yup. A triple framed, 1969 Autocar with Cat 1674 and Eaton 13 speed. 20k front, 40k rear. The bed is a dump bed from a grain truck and the crane is a Grove from a HEMTT. It had a 20k pusher on it that I removed.

    Wow... 1674. I haven't seen one of those for at least 25 years. Be very kind to it, that's one expensive engine to work on. If you can even find parts for it.

    The old trucks are nice. The 13spd tamed the shifting thing.........guys that couldn't do split shifting could run a Roadranger. The 13spd was a pivotal moment in the evolution of trucks.

    If we go to electric, it's all out the window. The torque curve on an electric motor kills any internal combustion engine. Kills it.

    Nikola was a very well crafted hoax, but I think the writing is on the wall

    99% of "trucking school" graduates have no idea what a 13 spd is.

    They only know D for Drive and R for reverse.

    They would really be screwed with a set of sticks like a 5x4, I had a ratty old Kenworth water truck and it flat amazed me that people could not drive the thing slow on a jobsite... Ended up putting a 10 spd in the thing to get something done. Jeez.

    These days it don't matter what powerplant you have.... thats not the issue.

    All the "so called" safety devices are... Like adaptive braking and camera/radar activated speed controls,

    If you are climbing a hill and some Asz-hole late for work zips in front of your bumper, The truck locks up the brakes. THAT will KILL IT for you....

    I drove a 5x4 in the air force. It was in the big wrecker - interesting transmission to drive.

    The 13 speed was a little easier I think.

    Not a judgment but simply an observation. But more importantly a differentiation between the 2 men in the picture, as it would apply in reference to my post... Which was just a mention about safety.

    IF my intention was to criticize anyones physical appearance, there are plenty of other pictures you have posted that I could have a field day with. If you know what I'm saying.

    Kory, If you want to be a troll, You really need to try harder.



    As far as the steel and the little red wagon, Them boys look like they are doing just fine.... Git-R-Done !

    Bitchin’! I miss my little Autocrane on my F550, I cant imagine having a real boom truck.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have to carry any sort of certificate to use the boom?

    No. I have a brother that is licensed for mobile cab cranes, but I've never needed one, at least no one has ever asked.

    ok, took me a while to dig up the photos... Can't remember if it's 1919 or 1920.

    That acetylene lamp is brighter than any modern headlight/driving light etc I've seen. Sure size has a lot to do with it. Lancaster Glass used to be a source for the mangin mirror type lenses until they became empty commercial acreage.
