Any good reason to not cut the bed on a wrecker up outside of the frame? Thinking of reworking one of mine to make it easier to work with, also add pictures of any you may have seen please no crap about keeping it original.
Does the crane have a hyd rotator coupling? If not you'll wind your hyd hoses up by rotating it past 360. I'm thinking it doesn't have a rotator coupling, hence the need for the stops.I have removed the "stops" to allow 360 degree rotation of the crane.
As to a break in the cable put your land anchors on top of your boom and they will be out of your way and protect the operators. And I have seen lots of M936 wreckers and none have had hydraulic outriggers, but that would be great mod.Which wrecker are you wanting to mod, if it was M816 or M543 I would put hydraulic cylinders to help with the out riggers everybody knows how a pain they are to pull out and put back in, something like the M936. Maybe a wheel lift and maybe a better steps than whats on the back of the bed. Add a safety precaution on the boom in case the cable every snapped it wouldn't hurt the operater. Thats my 2 cents.
