Tree house started, beware some green color

Well, more of a deck in the sky, set up at 50 yrd line on my range. Will be good to shoot from, also adding a climbing wall and zip line for niece/nephews. I don't plan to add an enclosure, will just pop a tent up there to camp in or play in when they are up. Got 3 of the 5 poles in today. Deck will be 16x16 or so.

Poles are 25-30 ft

To wide for trail, so used the arch

Pretty neat log hauler (the blue thing behind the 4 wheeler). Did you fabricate that? Could you take more pics of it? Did you purchase the pole?s or were they used from the power company? sorry for so many questions, but that is intriguing. JH

Car is a fun toy. The arch does not telescope. When using the lift handle I was able to pick up 30 ft telephone poles by hand but it was tough to push them on rough ground with 1 person. Using tow setup was a breeze

42 ft operating height, 32 ft extension. Honda power. Great little portable unit.

I think I will try jumping out of a plane next, maybe get a jet?

No it does not have to be attached. I just move it around with the bucket on the deere.

I considered a 4x4 lift or scissor 4x4 but for the height I wanted, they ran 15k-17k lbs. Too much for me to trailer.

I like this one as the electronics are simple, Honda motor and easy hydraulic runs except for the in-boom run. Also the straight stick is relatively quick compared to some of the articulated ones. Articulated have some positive featured too but run more money. This was very clean and cheap for what it is.

He who has the most toys-- Right ? nice collection seems it would be hard for you to get bored:D

My dad has an OC-3 and OC-46 so kind of easy to spot, did see other once I looked again. That is one beautiful place you have there

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
