Just Purchased 80' Crane

Rate this Entry
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 tons....so im thinking it will easily handle any size log that i need to move.

    Bought and paid for ...for a mere $6K...i had to do quite a bit of looking, and theres a lot of folks out there that are trying to sell equipent with hydrolic leaks...but this one checked out.
    After im done with it I might sell it, which might even bring a profit.
