@  FlossyTheSmart : (03 March 2015 - 12:46 PM) It should probably be wiki-fied too, when someone has an opportunity.
@  Mike T : (03 March 2015 - 12:25 PM) I just pinned it because it is excellent. I should do this for the two headlamp circuits too.

Yeah, and a real coincidence as I was driving to Montreal tomorrow to buy one for $225 plus tax, the box would fit in the 450 with the passenger seat down so at least it wouldn't have cost $60 in gas! :lol:

Yeah, I saw that one too but this $319 model from PA is the one similar to the one from CTC http://www.princessa...Lift-Shop-Crane, the rear wheels are the weak point in the $155 model, they are mounted on flat stock welded to the tube....instead of mounted directly to longer/wider tubes at the rear. As well the rams are different one is 5 ton the other is 8 ton.

If that is so I'll betcha a whole nickle the $319 model was tagged by the staff at the cheaper($155) price by accident, I've seen some "deals" at PA due to that, both PA models are rated at 2 ton it's just one weighs 30 lbs less than the other not to mention the lower power ram, :D
