Yard Crane


Recommended Posts

For twenty years I owned a Ww2 Chevrolet Blitz which was used as a yard crane on the farm.

We lifted engines, Weed Spraying equipment and much more.

The Blitz was cranky to start had no brakes and became a one man could drive vehicle.

With help from some mates we mounted the crane on a Toyota Dyna which anyone can drive and it stops to.

Yes the Dyna is smaller but this is really a engine lifter.

We have a counterbalance planned for the front.

Chev Blitz was to hard to use on farm . The Dyna ticks many boxes.

We have since fitted a aluminium tray over rear wheels.

The boom came from a F350 Tow truck it has been set up to lower to chassis level so to back into shed.

Like many I have several winches laying around a couple of which will end up on Dyna.

It is a ongoing project.


The Chevrolet Blitz I have swapped with a friend for a International Butterbox Acco with a Hydraulic Crane on it.

We both will exchange trucks soon.
