Finished 50 Ton Rotator Pics

Recommended Posts

Topic Created by RT19 in November of 2009:


We want to thank Derek and the "Crew" for an outstanding job on our 50 Ton rotator. This is our second project with "Custom Built" and we are VERY pleased with his workmanship and professionalism and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a quality rig made here in the USA. During the whole process Derek never cut corners and did everything that was asked...hence "Custom Built". Derek is also a distributor for B&A Products and gave us a great deal and saved alot of travel time. We also want to thank them for their hospitality while in Baltimore! We will be load testing this week and will post pictures as soon as we can. We should have the opportunity shortly to test it in a real world situation. Looking forward to our third build.

Nice to see the final pics! looks pretty good, need to get some exhaust on the driver side of that truck! I also was wondering the same as Daniel about tow barring with that plate in the way? What size of pin is in the T bar on that unit, it looks big!
