I take it this is a short distance/local move Michael - can't see plod allowing this out on the blacktop for any distance, especially as it's divisible load?:confused:
Plus I can't see any supports under that boom :rolleyes:

Hell of a piece of kit and some sort of truck it's sat on too !!

Even with rear wheel steer on that trailer one would have to be seriously awake on a roundabout or junction with that amount of tail end on it :eek:

Can see some seriously adjusted street furniture after thats been down the road :D

We didn't really expect anything less :D

That isn't the EC700 is it? was thinking it was a 480 or similar as its sat on the bed, then realised that bed is spread :cool:

Pretty sure you'd belly load the 700 but stand to be laughed at ;)

ON EDIT

Went back and checked earlier posts, you don't beam the 700 !
