  1. Just Purchased 80' Crane

    Just bought this crane to use to set and stack the logs for my upcoming build.
    I decided to get a crane vs a telehandler given that its reach, safety, and lifting capacities seemed like a better solution.
    Its a 15 ton Grove RT 58 with a 60' telescopic arm plus it has an additional 20' jib that makes the reach of the arm 80'.
    It can hoist im told by Grove up to 18 im thinking it will easily handle any size log that i need to move.

  3. On the way up!

    I just attached some "goal posts" to my RPSL's in preparation for raising the RP tomorrow. Haven't seen anyone do this but when one is working nearly by himself one gets creative.
    Check it out.
  4. Looking at my beach

    As I look at Diamond Head from my house, I wish I were on mainland. To build my log cabin here, I would need an act of God to allow the trees to be cut for my house. I need to move, and move we are going to do. Either to Washington State or to Colorado. It will happen in the next few months. I hate leaving the Island, however I must go where my heart draws me. I have a vision for my wife and children that can not be fulfilled here. ...
