-SOLD-Ford F700 flatbed with Knuckle crane
« on: August 03, 2008, 02:16:13 am »
I have a 1982 F700 flatbed with a knuckle boom crane that I need to sell. It has a detroit deisel engine in it and twin tanks. The hydraulics on the knuckleboom are in fair shape and I havent found a log yet that I couldnt put on the truck, even if I had to lift one and at a time. I have hauled home some whopers!

I no longer have any mills and have sold my skidsteer too, so this is no longer needed.

I have just had the brakes overhauled The engine runs perfect. It has a governer that limits its maximum speed to 55mph. The flat bed is 18' long and has 2 steel posts to keep logs from rolling off. More posts would be handy if you are hauling short logs. 2 of the tires are new. It needs new batteries but can be jumped off. Otherwise it is in good shape. I use chains and a log dog grapple hook to load logs. It does not have a hudraulic grapple, but the lines and control are in place for one if you want to add one.

IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A CDL.

I want $8,000 for this combo, but will accept reasonable offers.

What's the reach on the knuckleboom? And what will it pick up at full extension?

I used to use a similar truck about 10 years ago when I worked for Davey Tree. I know 2-3 different guys who may be interested.

Just to throw in my $0.02...  I have a similar set up on a 1980 GMC.  The truck and boom are handy for moving, hauling, lifting any number of items you wouldn't think about.  The cost of a new knuckle boom is double the asking price here for the whole set up.  This is a good deal...

The boom extends about 10 feet past the back of the bed and will pick up small stuff (less than 18") from full extension. Larger logs will need to be dragged along side the truck and lifted from there.

It has hydraulic brakes. They have just been reworked with new lines and one new brake cylinder and some new lines and a new master cylinder.

Is the loader a Fassi? And if so, do you have any contact info for Fassi? I need to get some technical specs on my Fassi F110A loader.

Thank you

It is not a fassi. It is an italian made unit and I have all of the documentation for the crane.

Prior to me having the truck, it served it's life at a manufacturing plant where they made the flat beds for trucks, like the flat bed that is on this truck. It was used to unload trucks with steel and rarely ever left the plant. It is in excellent running condition.

I like the crane and long deck but how much load capacity do you have left? I drove a similar unit that could not legally carry three drums of fuel, we needed another axle.

I'm not sure. I know I have been overloaded several times with it, but so far nobody has stopped me to ask about it. It will haul a load of large logs without any problems.

Getoverit,

   That's a great looking rig. I used to do a lot of hauling on a very similar rig about 15 years ago. That rig was a Coke delivery truck in it's past life and I hauled some HUGE loads of cants on it. Brings back memories.  ;D Do you know off hand what the GVWR is on your rig?

Thanks,

LOGDOG

Getoverit

the Effers are a good crane We have them overhere I think the shipping would be a Killer + having to wait 2 months for it to get here on Your truck but I reckon that it wont take long for one of the Boys on here to snap it up crane trucks are the most versitile way of handaling logs and sawn timber for a small sawmiller as You are not confined to a yard or having to float gear allover when thoes little jobs come up.

  I had a LNT 9000 with a 903 15spd RR and 38k rearend when i was 20 that I was going to mount Dads Fassi F85 to before We got out of building Loghomes in 01 .I have a bad habit of buying trucks/gear then not doing anything with it  I ve brought 6 trays and semis since I was 18  and only 1 of them is on the road the others usually sat in the yard for a year then got sold for more than Id payed for them  :D 8) I even had 1 that didnt eaven make it home it sat in the dealers yard and some one made an offer on it that i took. :D :D

Hello folks,,  Here is another 2 cents worth....It might be worth noting that even though this truck does not need cdl's .....it is still considered a comerical vehicle....over 10,001 lbs on the gvwr chart puts many of our trucks in this cat....My 3500 dodge dully falls in this cat...My son got a list of tickets in Al....with this truck....Better get ready to have fire ext. spare fuses, triangles and if the man wants to push it dot numbers....I had to reactivate mine....Some of these we should have anyway,, but how many dully pickups do you think have all that...

Just a note to let you know that this truck is still for sale. I have lowered the price to a firm $5,000.

I have now replaced the batteries and it cranks and runs fine.

To answer some earlier questions:

The distance from the tip of the boom to the center of the crane is 27' at full extension.

At full extension, the paperwork that I have on the crane says it will pick up 2,000# and a little over 9,000# close up.

It has hydraulic brakes. It does not have a horn and one of the turn signals is missing.

It has an 8 cyl. detroit diesel engine and has twin diesel tanks that I believe hold 50 gallons each.

I do not know if the governor can be disconnected. The truck is geared low and is a 6 speed. I would not suggest that this truck be driven cross country although it would most likely make the trip. The truck is a work truck and is not the most comfortable thing to drive. Making a long distance trip would most certainly be a strenuous trip.

Try this one for size 1980 lnt 9000 w 903 cummins and 15 spd with 24' tray and no crane $22000 au  :) ;) :D :D

My grandfather had one of the first Lnt 7000s imported into aust in the early 70s his had a 210 hp V8 and a 10 spd eaton bench seat and it did the Melb/Bris run for awhile pulling a 40' bogie fruhauf carting spuds up and and timber back a round trip of of about 1500 miles  ;) they where and still are a bloody nice truck But like Govrit said they are a little rough to ride in  ;) but most of your roads overther are a hell of alot better than the tracks we drag our gear over downunder  ;) :D :D :D

Chris  I got 117 acres I believe we can find a spot to put it till you get ready for it.   ;)  I got logs to pick up as soon as it drys a little.  That would sure beat having to  load the tractor... pull the tractor there... unload ....load logs....haul .....unload....go back get trractor....haul....unload agin....Wears me out just thinking about it. :(  Tim

Does anyone know of a hauler needing a load from Florida to Birmingham, Al?

I have a guy who has been deadheading back once a week. I am not sure how he would get the truck on a standard flatbed, or if that would even be legal.

A hole/ditch and a pile of dirt will get it on and off.  The DOT is a different story.  If it is tied on good and doesn't exceed the gvwr's of the hauling vehicle, there shouldn't be much they can say.
