yeh I have Stu ...... but it's a bit of a lump .... plus you'd have to loop the bag eyes over the bottom clamp member's extensions .... no hooks.



would put the grab itself outside the bag dimensions/footprint .... by a lot.

I want to be able to tuck these bags in tight, so would like to keep the lifter inside their footprint .... and TBH it's something I've been intending to knock out for ages .... these bags fare so much better handled with care and straps vertical.

Plus..... it'd be a damned sight easier to use on me own .... could always dangle it under a rotator too, if I wanted/needed to, for even greater control !!

you mean scissor type Stu ??



that one of mine's a great grab and has a hell of an opening capacity, but's very different with its parallel operation





takes no prisoners

So much for the azure skies we've been promised for this weeks weather.

Absolutely throwing it down here all last night and today .... plus about 6C all day

If I get up and the wall to wall blue sky forecast hasn't made an appearance, I might just slit my wrists ... if it's gonna rain - don't raise our hopes and tell us it ain't

'Sthat Rory an' Lefty's fault .... 'sall coming from their direction ATM

the only redeeming feature about the weather this morning Bert is ....... it's not ACTUALLY peeing down ....
ATM anyway .......not far away, looking at the sky, but still pretty cool, considering the date

deffo not the wall to wall blue sky they forecast for today and tomorrow

When's it gonna end ? !!!!!!!!

We're in the middle of Autumn here in Australia and temperatures still getting to 30ºC which is unusually hot for this time of the year on the coast. (Bikini weather!)
It's been dry and hot for months and the house site I'm clearing vegetation off with the Haulotte is covered in 100mm of fine dust. Any movement stirs it up in clouds making visibility difficult.
Don't mind the warm weather but I hate getting my machinery full of dust

BTW for those in the soggy UK, dust is dirt which has been baked for months until completely dry. It is then dug up or disturbed by machinery so as to become airborne over your work area. It apparently has no calories
