Default Fully Fuctional 80 ton Tow Truck

Hey everyone,
This build has been in the works for a year to date today so I figured I would share how far its gotten.

This is a build for myself and should'nt be sold.(Unless you have enough $$$$
Remember this is a SLOW build due to work and other builds(customers)

Lets start

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





































I these under it now






Let me know what you think

Greg

I'll be the first to say it... HOLY CRAP! That's impressive. Working on some screw drive stuff myself but this is almost too much. Really like your driveline setup and tire & wheel choice! Keep on truckin'.
