    I like the CTIS ! Awesome truck. You’ve got rock and gravel and I’ve got Philly potholes.

    That’s close to an ideal spec there. But we’d be fine with an higher mile truck that’s less powerful.

    The attachment below solves some of the problems since it moves in all kinds of directions, but if you look close you can imagine the situations where an overhang or flat soffitted roof line blocks the telehandler. We’re gonna saw the back rest off ours and create a removable softer one. But is...

    I didn’t give a clear enough picture. We’d just be driving the tractor back behind the house; no trailer. We’re always projecting out over a porch etc. and can’t get the machine close enough. The 56’ machines are heavier still, and sometimes longer. Plus the telehandler doesn’t slew. You back...

    Overall pretty high; the crane will probably run us $25-60,000. I’m looking at cheaper pre-emission trucks (or pre-DEF/DPF). The under powered stripped chassis with 20k fronts and PTOs seem pretty reasonable; REALLY nice ones for $15-40k IMHO. We’d take a longer chassis, mount the knuckle...

    I need a suspension on a tractor that will allow me to creep around the back of a house on steep and soft job sites. We’re thinking about 6x6 or something with fat tires on a 20k front axle. It will have a Knuckleboom mounted behind the cab. BUT . . . I haul windows so the ride needs to...

    Every time I Google some odd question this site seems to come up. That’s as good a sign as any that I should register. Thanks for all the great insight here.

    Replacement forks sourcing CAT/JLG TL943 telehandler

    CAT TL943: Anyone know good source for used (or new) telehandler forks? I need 8-12’ forks for picking long thin and tall pallets of windows out of containers and shooting them through small openings in buildings; the longer the better. Also trying to keep the forks from getting too thick so...
