Who said I couldn't do that

Well. As scary as it looks we were able to pick this little bin off the trailer and stand it up using the jib pole I made on the forks with the 766. It handled it well. Stood it on the peers I had poured and bolted it down in the rain while the wind kept picking up the whole time. No sooner than I got that thing in the air the wind picked up. But it wasn't bad. 

Not a how too tutorial by any means but it worked!

Looks good. I stood one up with a loader once. Worked fairly well. That one has the extra capacity sides on it. :) Good work

Here's another one unloading some corn over at my uncles. It's a old crib and old auger to go along with an old tractor. He gets some corn from me every year to feed his cows. It holds about 500bu.  I had a big gravity flow wagon behind the truck and that topped her off for him. Old school way but it works for him. There's a little 4" auger sticking out the window that he puts right in his grinder mixer.

Ahh to be young and fearless again!

I put up 3 different 35 ft chimney pipes with my old  K3500 wrecker. 

BUT, I didn`t climb up the rigging!

They are still doing CPR on the OSHA guy that seen the picture of standing on the loader.

Oh well, I have too done some of this stuff because the job needed done.

Glad things got bolted down before the wind took it.

Lol. I figured we could get a rise. We had to re rig because it wouldn't raise enough with the slack in the ropes. We had to have that much slack to allow it to swing down when I picked it. We used 2 ropes so that one was tight while we loosened the other to re rig. Could of done it from the ladder probably but this looked cooler.
