When the back tyres are in mid air and two blokes sitting on the bonnet also lack of steering thats about its lot!!!

Hahah :D I like your style

reminds me of when I used to have a Coles 6 Ton Argus crane in my yard.....she was rated at and would easily lift 6 ton..and with the wheels closest to the load ran up on a pair of railway sleepers to 'tip' her backwards a bit she'd lift 10 ton easily enough too........

Mind you...you only wanted to lift the load up off the lorry enough to let the trailer be pulled out from underneath and then you'd drop the load down onto the floor.....you didn't want to try slewing ........oh no :D.....no no no :).and I did have to weld up a sort of 'Mad Max' Steel RSJ frame on the front to stop the load damaging the front of her....
