I bought this a few weeks ago and today I brought it around on the hook to dismantle and sell the parts.

 

 The front packed with debris and caught fire. Didn't even burn the hoses. Still filled with coolant.

Sometimes you see something & immediately think: Wow, I need one of those!  I love your hook!  Is it a homemade item? Can we get some close ups?

That is a nice looking boom you put together there. I may use that idea!
