Another winter project from my Ranger days circa 2012. The crane is 1 meter tall (3 feet plus) when extended and has extendable stabilizers. The chassis has 10-2” wheels and is made from white pine and red oak and the crane is red oak all the wood was recycled or milled at the compound. Until now I never posted pictures of my work but the vehicles were on display in our ranger station lobby. I don’t have pictures of them but I had many RV models of different sizes and styles. I’m planning on building some recreations of them soon.
