    agree 100%.

    [QUOTE=Tryagn5;313813]Now its time for a hydraulic air compressor! Also no worries on the oil overheating, a service truck crane is not non stop operation, , and is an open center hydraulic system, so it simply returns to tank when the crane is in idle postion...ie pto engaged pump turning. Also i would recommend running the truck at 1200 rpms or so, if you run a 7.3 or 6.0 injectors live much longer when they are being cooled properly.Ihave the aux idle controller to ramp up idle wasn,t sure where to run it at.Thanks for advice.Was going to put in the blue regulator pressure spring update also.I have a engine driven ir compressor with kholer 11.5hp gas engine 30 gal tank.It,s behind my O/A tanks.

    Truck looks great, Now your at a new level, As far as being able to load things onto your trailer to bring back to the shop, Erecting steel, Using the boom to hold your suitcase feeder where you need it etc.

    Any way, Congradulations on your build.

    admweld, If you remember what my truck looks like, I have a full 20' long rack on my F-550, A compressor, the crane and the Miller Pipe pro and I weigh out at 16,680 lbs.

    My guess is that you will weigh between 15 and 16,000 Lbs. and your GVW should be 17,500 Lbs.

    I used to run with a 24,000 Lb plate but because I haul a trailer and my little backhoe and four 4'x 8'x 1/2"thick road plates I changed to a 28,000Lb plate.
    Portable I think I,m gonna weigh more then that.I willing to bet I,m gonna weigh 18,000-19,000-lbs
