    Hey everyone,

    Everyone knows about my old tow truck times are hard and I sold it.

    Well now I need a truck I decided to go big or just not come out. (Warning this will be a slow build processes)

    I am planning fully functional Rotating,extending,main boom.A fully functional wheel lift up/down drop/raise,extend/retract,and functional out riggers.

    Heres the kicker all working from the radio and all HYDRAULIC. My last one was all screw drive.

    This one will be American style not European.

    Heres my old one

    Heres the new one I'm planing

    Wow that's a nice rig. How far is the rotator reach on it and how are you going to extend.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    The pump is 400.00
    The valve body is 700.00
    The big cylinders are 125.00 each and the other ones are 95.00-125.00
    Their is a total of 9-13 cylinders on this build.

    The boom is at rest 16 inches and at full extend it will be 32-34 inches all done with a screw drive.

    Got to remember everyone this isn't a kit its all scratched built.

    Thanks for looking

    Greg
