Thanks so much for posting the pictures for me Ken. I guess I'm just too incompetent to do it myself. I copied as best I could the actual machine which is nearby. This rig is equipped with a Pro-Lec, Hoist-Tech system thus all the extra lines. Quite maddening! I'll send more pic's to you as I move along. Sorry for the quality as I took the pic's with my wife's phone. Mike

Awesome detailing job.
Let's hope your carrier don't knock the boom under an overpass bridge... Whatever

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I'll only let Ken transport that rig so I won't have to worry. Mike

I think I can handle that....but the travel time is going to be a killer! When some of the drivers ask how I like being retired, I say it is great. I can drive any model lowboy in my shop, no cops, no traffic, no electronic logs, no bad weather, and I can park anywhere and go to bed!

That 25 ton switcher (load) looks like an interesting refurbishing project.... Think

The engine weighed in at 98,000 lbs. and belonged to Vulcan Materials. They took the tracks out of the pit it was at and had to be moved to another pit.
