I had some extra time and some pallets of blocks too check my machines lifting ability. Thats about 6500 pounds in the picture. I put over 7000 pounds and it did not want too lift it very far off the ground. It was hydraulic limited. They list the lift arm breakout at 7400. It appears to be pretty much dead on. The tipping load is 6000 and it is very tipping with over 6000 pounds. I move 2 pallets of blocks around quite often but the machine is very light on the rear.
