truck mounted knuckleboom

How much trouble is it to take a timberjack knuckleboom off a trailer and mount it on a truck? I will run a ground saw with it.

 I looked into it, there is a magic number for frame length depending on boom length, so yojr not hanging way out. Ive seen them mounted on pressure treated, using the trailer hardware and some plate and bolts, not a huge deal. The saw runs off the loader, mount your loader with the lines pointing back. Don @ Lakeshore could probably give you some good info.

 Is the loader plumbed for a saw right now ?  2 large lines and 1 small line coming out the back ?  Im not to hot on delimber plumbing but im sure one of these guys will know right off if you have a model number for the loader.
