Default Hiab truck or trailer mounted

I am thinking about a hiab crane which needs to be able to lift 20ft containers.
I run a unit with 35ft low loader, and have a demount body on the unit for small loads
I am wondering firstly what size or crane and second do I mount on truck or trailer, my concern would be no small body after crane is fitted
Thanks

This is my ‘new’ truck with a 10’ body slid on
B6B8DEB5-4C19-4DF6-9626-55A14C983EC7.jpg
It’s a 38 tonne meter Crane that will lift 1.5tonnes at full stretch 14.5 meters
But will lift an empty 20’ box to just over 10 meters
I would have the crane on the unit as I find it more flexible
What unit have you got

so crane size I am looking at a reach of about 20-25ft, I understand the containers are about 2.5ton, what would the typical size I should be looking for?
Also I assume remote control is the only way to go
thanks

ill post some hopefully tomorrow.
we used to have a demount beavertail and tipper body, needed to shift heavier plant hence when with a triaxle short low loader. we still have and use the tipper body.
the problem I have some sites I be at are very residential and the small gear only weighs about 4tons.
where the hiab come in is that we have been approached by a customer to shift site container because our low loader would get into places most wont, we shift plant currently for them

Remote forget it without my first one didn’t have one and it was hard work on your own then the next one had remote it was like going from a black and white tv to colour one
As for size I managed with a 23 ton meter one for years doing boxes but remember the reach is from the centre of the slew, so with a trailer on you have lost nearly 2 meters to reach the other side of the head board then you have to then reach the middle of the box another 3 meters, so 5 meters and you haven’t got any extra
To be fair my 23002 palfinger lifted boxes onto the flat of my step frame but it did have a bit of a tweak between Crane tests but only me used it
