      Great Idea!

      I bet that really can save your back as well,

      How much does a good powered jib crane cost and were do you recommend to buy one?

      Once again, thats a super awesome set up~

          It is a backsaver. This one is a Vestil, and was fairly pricey. I had to pay for the unit and I had it professionally installed along with a brake-powered trailer hitch.
          Big bucks, but worth it. I will be using the brake-powered trailer hitch for pulling a jetter soon.

            I took them on my camera phone. That is how they are showing up.

              No problem. Just like detailed pics to learn from. I've never had a crane and it might be something I need to get.

                I usually use the regular digital camera, but my wife had it. I hate the cellphone camera, its more work to upload pics and they come out crappy. Next time I'll use the regular camera.

                  Looks good. It is the exact same one i have in my truck.i got a better price from ww grainger than i got from vestil.where it pivots on the upright post i drilled and put in 2 grease zerks. It made it a lot easier to swing my tool cart into the truck, without binding pipe on pipe.in 3 years it gets used 4 or 5 times a week, a real backsaver.

                    Doesn't everbody use a electric winch? I don't like your machine being so crooked though, just something else to fight with getting it back into the truck.....

                      I just hump the thing in and out, but I'm starting to notice it's getting heavier lately. Some days my body likes the work, some days it doesn't. Part of me feels like if I quit doing it, I won't be able to. Part of me knows if I keep doing it I'll injure myself eventually. Nice crane. Nice clean install.
                      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
