Too bad you are so far away or I'd buy the loader off of you. Been having a hard time finding a small loader anywhere nearby. Big ones no problem but not what I need.

An autocrane off a service truck.  Hold out forcone with a powered worm gear slew and a telescoping boom.  You cut and extend the mount over the slew base then build a boom between the base and stick.  Use the telescoping sectioj as your new squirt stick to mount the grapple.  Theres a small hydraulic winch in the base already.

Plan right now is in spring to ask a guy I know what is wrong with the old forwarder that's been parked out back of his place for years and if he wants to sell. THAT would kill a whole flock of birds with one stone. Those service truck cranes hardly ever pop up nearby either and the few that do are apparently full of gold and diamonds..

Then if all goes well ill be picking up a Lafont ss500 log splitter which will be a  nice addition to what is going to be whole new game changer for us over the tractor supply splitter. I might even get into building these splitters but with some modern design updates I like the concept of them.
