Cranes on trucks, cranes on stands

Since someone asked nicely in the big dumb loads thread, I thought I'd start a thread for cranes. I can see their utility on flat beds, and I like the one setup for a hitch.

Post em up.

I'm interested in seeing the hitch mount type if anyone's got one. Have one laying around the shop that folds into a rear bumper that we removed from a cube van for a customer that I've thought about snagging but I'd really rather not have a big ugly cube van bumper on my daily driver all the time.

Judging by the slope of the glacis plate, I would guess Panther.

Smallest first, otherwise the weight distribution of the load would change with each subsequent crane you lift and they wouldn't sit level and they'd look stupid.
