      That is 4" steel angle iron, with a poured concrete top. They are very heavy, it takes a forklift to move them.

    I was really hoping this was a video of starting construction on the castle upgrades. I'm really looking forward to seeing progress updates on this. You are a very creative and talented young man! Keep up the great work!

    If I was American I'd be contacting Andrew about buying land in his area to build my own house using methods similar to him & his buddies....a whole community of 'Camaratians' could spring up & the powers that be wouldn't be able to do a damn thing about it! Unfortunately I'm stuck in London, living in a shoe box where building a book shelf is heavy industry!

    Andrew - A little off topic here, but check out this bucket for winter plowing. I’m thinking of getting one if I can figure out where to buy it. I like the open top so I can somewhat see what’s going on and I like the wings. The wings seem to be more beneficial than the oversized wings I normally see. You plow about as much as I do, which is not so much that we need the big expensive buckets. This seems ideal. Interested to hear your thoughts on it.

      @Andrew Camarata No issues at all. Keep doing what you are doing. I just wondered if you updated something since you said you were taking off to work on roof.

    • Andrew Camarata

      Maybe, is it that annoying. Lots of people said they never saw any adds. Lots of my videos are long.

    I was working on a project at a local papermill (retired IBEW electrician) that had several cranes onsite. One was a Pettibone, looked to be a little larger than the one in the video. The site was off limits to regular traffic, but a phone company employee kept parking his work van in the worksite area. Having been warned to keep out, he kept coming back and parked at the side of the Pettibone close to the rear wheel. The Pettibone operator came back from lunch, started up the machine, and proceeded to put out the outriggers. The outrigger on his right rear side went down thru the side of the van and pinned it to the ground. You should have seen the phone company guy when he came back. The van was totally destroyed, the Pettibone only got a few scratches.

    You bring a lot of real happiness to a lot of people and I want to celebrate that. Have a great day.

    There was a Pettibone log skidder for sale in Australia, never seen one before, they used loader axles, Detroit engine, truck gearbox, winch on rear and blade on front, it was all cobbled together in thick plate, welds were rough, it was a goer asking $5000au, this crane is a lot different and well made.
