This is a man with his priorities in order. Reader goblirschrolf doesn’t buy a mini-crane which could make his life easier because, screw that, he can build one. Then he can break in his homebrew crane by clearing a little bit of timber, as pictured above.
Will you be seeing Goblirschrolf brand cranes at the local big box next year? Most likely not — but you can see his place all cleaned up because his truck-mounted crane moved literally tons of wood so he didn’t have to.
Now my question is, Did he go all the way? Is that bad boy motorized or hand-cranked?
