I will get the 23GT on Friday. They are flying in late Thursday or early Friday morning to do the transfer and certification.
It's been a long wait. I'm glad it is almost over.(the waiting part). :lol:

I ordered it April 24th Willie. So almost 8 months.
I don't think the wait is as long now, seems like
they told me that Teupen has added more staff.
So they can get production up.

Willie I sent them a check for 20K when I ordered it.
The lift has to be paid in full before they will ship from
Germany. So have your financing set up to start when
the lift is ready to ship.
Ryan told me that they have reduced the down payment
to 15K because of the long wait. But the wait should not
be as long now.

My lift is in ST Louis Mo. Will be in Kansas City tomorrow
evening. Scott is flying in Friday morning. The wait is finally
about over. 8)

The booms on the Spider are almost as big as the booms
on the bucket truck. Very little movement when fully extended.

Yes Willie both booms telescope. It is not quit as fast as the bucket truck.
But will make up for it with positioning.

The silver part on the booms is what telescopes out. It is very smooth operating, no jerking around.

That is so friggin' awesome! If I hadn't met you and found out what a nice guy you are I'd be hating you out of jealousy.

Thanks Darin
The lift fits in the truck you saw at your place. Now I have to see if I can
squeeze the bobcat and stump grinder in there.
