Don't necessarily like all the linkages on the back of the boom but would be a great road maintenance machine for ditching, mowing, maybe mulching, and culvert repair.
'nature of the beast' Bert .... 'swhy they're so 'flexible'

TBF it does look quite clean and tidy for its age





curiously ...... that has a wheel off the deck ????

also looks to have an S type hitch too

Is the boom ram resting on the front of the engine cover and putting just enough weight on to twist it slightly on the centre pivot.

And if it's a none runner, how did they get it sitting there in the yard if not under its own steam? It's the last place you'd want a lump of metal blocking all around it.
Perhaps it's got a twist dragging it off the flatbed

IMHDO .... it's sat on it's hitch, with just enough air to have one boot off the deck.
it's also making engine access damned near impossible ...
can't see it's been over at all ... no visible damage ...
fishy one that .....
WTF park it that way around, with a known requirement to gain access to the motor??

Don't see any pipes for it. Would a knuckle ram be an optional extra on it?

Shortest distance for the machine to fit on the lorry.

agree .... link looks like it may have 3 positions, judging by the size of the 'butt end' of it ..... hydraulic adjustment may have been optional
