Long arm grab makes long load

Amongsat the many pieces of machinery that have arrived in Halifax by ship over the last few days, this Terex Fuchs MHL360 caught my attention. It is specially built to handle scrap metal with an orange peel grab.

Not immediately obvious from the photo is the fact that the operator's cab is also mounted on an articulated hydraulic boom that can raise it to about half the height of the boom. The company's product literature shows more:  http://www.terex-fuchs.com/en/machines/product-range/mhl-360.html

Carrying the unit was S&M Trucking of Sydney, NS, with one of their Freightliners. It is equipped with a chrome bull bar - a most useful device for traveling in New Brunswick and Newfoundland with huge moose populations and Nova Scotia with deer in profusion.
