Tim, I done looked at it, but that was back in the $8k days and I was broke.  It wasn't all that hard to resist under those circumstances. ::) :D :D

I been wanting a crane like that to go on my 1700 interrnational.  But buying another toy right now would get me in more trouble than the bathroom remodel that I'm NOT working on very much.  I did do a little taping last night.  Tim

Tim i take it you dont mind having it at your place then Mate  ;) :D ;D ;)

Fish I thought you'd say somthing like that Mate  ;) :D :D :D :D :D Well you have about 3 months to to figure somthing out Cash is allways the hard thing to find ;) :D ;D ;D ;)  Ill just have too work a little harder now  ;) :D ;D ;) $6700s au is  Cheap thats why i wouldnt mind it sitting at tims for awhile  Im pretty sure that tim wont let the cobwebs build up on it for me mate  ;) :D :D :D ;D ;D ;)

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

I know of one mid 70s  L700 with a lill 210 cat S/drive w/36" sleeper doing the Bris to Perth run pulling a triaxle 40' flattop at the moment  ;) ;D round trip 8600 MILES and he does it every 12 days  :o :) Not Bad for an OLL JIGGER  That he brought from a Wreckers and did up himself ;)  :D ;D ;D ;D   8) 8)

Getoverit what size Detroit does it have in it Not an 318 8V71n  ??? :) :) I could pull a bloody Road Train with that thing in er  ;) :D ;D 8) 8)

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.
