NOPE. I sure haven't! But I am amazed by that bad ass truck that is clearly lifted off the ground to go change the bulbs!

How much reach that have on it?

The slope of the street there sucked! We had to lift the front end of that thing quite aways to compensate for that, and the sidewalk!

It will reach 138'. The picture doesn't do it justice, as it wasn't the height as much as the reach
horizontal to get to where the light was at.
They didn't want us to drive on the field.

Oh yea, and Becky~ IT'S ALL WHEEL DRIVE! way cool

Look at the photo again, by having the rubber off of the ground the weight of the engine and cab have now become counter weights for the boom. In all actuality you should have the rubber off of the ground with a digger derrick.

That is an ALTEC pedestal crane.
