Old log loader identification

 I just purchased this log truck. Itís a late 80ís f700. There is no identification tags itís stampings on the loader itself that I can find. I was hoping someone here may recognize it.

Also the hydraulic rams that rotate the turret are blown and I was hoping someone may be able to tell me how to remove them. I donít see any bolts to remove them from the turret

Is that a telescoping stick?  If it is i am gonna guess it may have been an IMT crane converted to grapple. I cant tell clear enough in the pics.

Pretty sure thatís an old rack an pinion type rotate on your turntable, those cylinder barrels should unscrew from the center assembly exposing the cylinder rod with a piston packing, should be spanner wrench holes in the end of the cylinder or just use a chain type pipe wrench around the cylinder, pull them one side at a time, the large plug in the center you see through the access hole should have a thrust type assembly behind it to keep the rack tight against the rotation pinion, been a long time but Iíve seen similar in the past, canít help on actual manufacturer at the moment, seals probably available at a hydraulic supply house can be matched up.

Id say it is a prentiss due to the yellow. Yes, its is rack and pinion. The rack cylinders thread into the mast.  We had one that blew the threads one time.

I thought Prentice as well except the only ones i was around had foot pedals for left to right swinging of the boom but maybe Im just too old.

Yes the 'jars' screw in. Hope they are not rusty inside. I was going to say Hawk [IMT] but the extendaboom was not common then or is it a John deere rotoboom. They where yellow and had wide section boom and stick.
