      Hello all,

      Just wondering if anyone has a cherry picker for rent. Don't mind paying a rental shop but figured I could give the money to a VW enthusiast. Let me know by the end of the day, I will be procuring one from Stephonson's or PA by eod or early tomorrow.

      Cheers

      I've done a swap before with an open ended dolly and a transmission jack, along with some straps to hold it secure.
