Southside, in my experience with them you want to be able to raise/lower and boom in/out at the same time in many situations. Hence them being on the same stick. Allows smoother operation.
But if some other configuration works better for you, give it a try.

Looks like that will be a handy machine to have around.

Thanks MM. I'm actually using up a bunch of lumber that I've had laying around that was not that great of quality that I wouldn't sell to customers but hated to just pitch it.

You will love the new machine.
Thats how my machine is plumbed. I have found it handy to be able to boom in and down or vise a versa at the same time.
What is the lift capacity on that one?

6,000 lbs when pulled in, 1,500 when fully extended with the carriage all the way forward.  She actually paid for herself today.  

This morning I could not find a first calf heifer that never ventures far so I went looking for her, we have had so much rain this year and even more lately.  Well that gal found a new spring hole that I have walked over many times in wet conditions and never had a problem, she was sunk to her neck.  I went to check on her and on her left side I could stand on the surface while sinking in maybe a few inches, walked to the other side and WHAM, I went down to my waist with one leg, complete liquification of the ground.  My excavator might have been able to reach in that far, but getting it down there would have been an issue and I don't think she would have made it between some trees so I would have had to deal with that and I didn't have time to waste.  So I went and grabbed the Lull, drove it right between the trees and up to what I knew was solid ground, extended the carriage and boom most of the way out there, grabbed a couple 4" straps and made a sling around the poor girl, had to get into the mud up to my chest to make it happen but she was very cooperative.  Took a couple of lift and withdraw the boom moves along with re-adjusting the sling but I got her up onto solid ground.  I do have an "Upsy Daisy" but there was no way to get that on her as deep as she was.  After a minute of letting her stand there I un did the harness and she slowly walked out of there and went right to grazing, been walking and eating all day ever since so I think she is fine.  I did throw a horse blanket on her to help keep her warm, the mud is not our normal red clay, more of a blue marine type clay and it forms like concrete on you, had to pressure wash my clothes after to get it off enough to throw in the washer.  Of course with all the jigging and moving back and forth to get the machine into place in the beginning I had broken the ground surface so now the Lull was stuck.  Called a buddy who came over and we brought my Franklin skidder down there, 40,000 lb winch made short work of that problem.  I guess that's one way to find out the real world capabilities of a machine, not that I want to do that again mind you, but yes worth every penny already.

Very handy in deed. Mine has the same lift capacity listed but I have a feeling it will lift more. 

We had a calf born last week as well. No Lull needed yet though :D. It has been exceptionally wet here this year too.

I have another one in the calving shed at the moment, need to go and check on her again shortly, I kept looking over at her during the ordeal thinking she was going to calf right then and there on me in the middle of it.  At least she is not a heifer, this will be her 4th calf and she milks heavy for a Jersey on just grass, her bag is way out there right now.

More progress on the shed. 
The outside is done. I started on the inside and got started on setting up the equipment.
