      You do a lot of work for friends. Do you usually charge them or just do it as a favor?

      1. Andrew Camarata

        This was just a favor.

    2. Ramapo River

      Where's your house?

    3. Brexit Monger

      2:13 why do Americans still build temporary houses out of matchsticks?? Come on guys you're there to stay, Columbus was a long time ago! Why not have the confidence to build in stone, fit for 1,000 years?

      1. Brexit Monger

        @Andrew Camarata Haha, you wouldn't get away with too many indoor fires in that matchstick house. You need somewhere that can take a bit of punishment.

      2. Andrew Camarata

        I agree with you on that one. I would not build a house out of fire wood like that. Look at my building, its all steel and concrete.

      So, can you just replace 2 6volt batteries with one 12 volt? Also, as much as that thing sits put a good battery disconnect on it. Does it need a new starter too?

      1. Andrew Camarata

        The two 6 volt battery's are hooked in series, so its a 12 volt system. Yes, it can use a 12v battery as long as it has enough amps.

      Funny bone. We had a 65 ton rt leak alot. Flipped it.

      1. motor head1

        @Andrew Camarata check rotek bearing bolts and races. They crack and house comes off carrier. Sad.. hope it is ok. Keep up excellent work shows..

      2. Andrew Camarata

        This one just got flipped, happened in transport though.

    7. Patrick Legare

      I love your videos man 👨 every since I started watching you I did things the camarata way(is the better way)

    8. Samuel Henton

      How did you make your workbench?

      1. Andrew Camarata

        That is 4" steel angle iron, with a poured concrete top. They are very heavy, it takes a forklift to move them.

    9. Ken Breuer

      I was really hoping this was a video of starting construction on the castle upgrades. I'm really looking forward to seeing progress updates on this. You are a very creative and talented young man! Keep up the great work!

    10. FACELESSpsycho Gaming

      Dude it's crazy how big your Chanel is now I have been watching you since like 1200 or maybe even less subs not on this account but from my personal one. Really awesome man keep grinding brother.

      1. Andrew Camarata


    11. juho-pekka strang

      Did you ever smoking?

    12. Brandon Garbacz

      Why not use a big 12v loader battery?

      1. Brandon Garbacz

        @Andrew Camarata fair enough I wounder why they did 6 volts to make 12 it's interesting to me lol that's for the reply buddy

      2. Andrew Camarata

        I installed the battery's that it was suppose to have.

    13. John Hall

      Where's the video at

    14. bvincesf

      Why't this piece of wood here? Aghhh, that was to hold it in gear. This is awesome.

    15. Garrett Nolan

      Do you have your own rigging for the crane? P.S. I love your videos by far my favorite on the whole site!!!

    16. Tom Tremayne

      If I was American I'd be contacting Andrew about buying land in his area to build my own house using methods similar to him & his buddies....a whole community of 'Camaratians' could spring up & the powers that be wouldn't be able to do a damn thing about it! Unfortunately I'm stuck in London, living in a shoe box where building a book shelf is heavy industry!

    17. trey chiri

      Is that your property in the background at around 2:48 Im guessing? Love how you can see the castle hahaha

    18. Jakey from the Cauntry

      9:20 sometimes all you need is a bigger hammer.

    19. 2A Colorado

    20. 916senna

      Id check that fork tyne before you lift anything. You cut straight across it.

    21. Sonnicman

      I don't know what it is, but I just love watching that crane.

    22. Contstructionkid 472

      Where do you find all of this equipment?

    23. mr bill

      Can I borrow some tools?

    24. balconio1172

      @Andrew Camarata can you do a video on how to find a reputable excavator locally? Like what to look for, what questions to ask and so forth?

    25. Jay Holman

      Commercials, What happened?

    26. August Hunicke

    27. pboperations

    35. Causus

      Nice Video! Where do you get the music from, like the one 5min in? The style reminds me abit of some tunes from Italian band Goblin (used in alot of old horror movies).

    36. Cameron Frye

      I love my chocolate lab and Malinois . I take them everywhere with me too. That plasma cuts so much cleaner than my acetylene torch.

    37. Billy Fa'ase'e

    38. Woody Woodlstein

    39. Teri and TL Stanbro

      Andrew - A little off topic here, but check out this bucket for winter plowing. I’m thinking of getting one if I can figure out where to buy it. I like the open top so I can somewhat see what’s going on and I like the wings. The wings seem to be more beneficial than the oversized wings I normally see. You plow about as much as I do, which is not so much that we need the big expensive buckets. This seems ideal. Interested to hear your thoughts on it.

    41. Eli Young

      Love the Vidoes only been watching for about a week but I have watched all of them. Coming from Sparts. TN. Keep on the videos👍👍

    42. jjsjeffjjsjeff

      Holdup..if there is 2 6V batteries in series why not just put in two 12V batteries in parallel?

    43. shawn coulter

      Is this first video with ads in middle?

      1. shawn coulter

        @Andrew Camarata No issues at all. Keep doing what you are doing. I just wondered if you updated something since you said you were taking off to work on roof.

      2. Andrew Camarata

        Maybe, is it that annoying. Lots of people said they never saw any adds. Lots of my videos are long.

    44. Dave Nelson

      Do you know why there is two 6 v batteries instead of one 12 v ? I may know !!!

    45. George Wehrheim

      What program do you edit your videos with ?

    46. Larry Keenan

      I was working on a project at a local papermill (retired IBEW electrician) that had several cranes onsite. One was a Pettibone, looked to be a little larger than the one in the video. The site was off limits to regular traffic, but a phone company employee kept parking his work van in the worksite area. Having been warned to keep out, he kept coming back and parked at the side of the Pettibone close to the rear wheel. The Pettibone operator came back from lunch, started up the machine, and proceeded to put out the outriggers. The outrigger on his right rear side went down thru the side of the van and pinned it to the ground. You should have seen the phone company guy when he came back. The van was totally destroyed, the Pettibone only got a few scratches.

    47. Daniel Tripoli

      He sounds like an off-brand maxmoefoe

    48. Richard Wells

      I cant believe you are using rigging that is tied together with a knot. WOW!

      1. Andrew Camarata

        Richard Wells wow!

    49. Jasper Edwards

      there wont be no more trees left if people keep going off grid

      1. Jasper Edwards

        @Andrew Camarata of grid will come to a end then it will be boring because you cant limit the people all these die hard yuppies want to be off grid im quit happy to be on grid

      2. Andrew Camarata

        Jasper Edwards sure there will. Trees grow fast. Need to limit the amount of people

    52. Kyle Greer

      Sitting ub Sitting under your sign

    53. Brian Navalinsky

      Hey Andrew! Happy Birthday! Can't remember where I saw that date but I noticed it was the same as an old girlfriend's. My reaction was, "They couldn't possibly be the same sign." You bring a lot of real happiness to a lot of people and I want to celebrate that. Have a great day.

    54. Schmidty's Quads

      Great Video!

    55. MrTech800

      Hi who is Jesse Muller and why does he copy you or you copy him? however very interesting videos from both of you, Thanks

      1. David Null

        Andrew started years before Jesse. Andrew's technique and style have been around years before Jesse.

    56. actorzone

      There was a Pettibone log skidder for sale in Australia, never seen one before, they used loader axles, Detroit engine, truck gearbox, winch on rear and blade on front, it was all cobbled together in thick plate, welds were rough, it was a goer asking $5000au, this crane is a lot different and well made.

    57. Smellzke 209

      I would love to get out of California

      1. Googleguy

        Yea, it’s horrible; it’s going to be 75 degrees today.

    58. Danehavenlane

      Your buddy should have bought the batteries for the use.

    59. Frank B

      Wow you are trending Andrew, congratulations!

    61. ger traba

    62. DCon

      I used a very similar Grove crane to hang engines and propellers on C-130 aircraft. Really enjoyed that crane and it's capabilities.

    63. dennis smith

      Is that last stage stuck in the extended position ?

      1. Andrew Camarata

        no, thats in.

    64. Heather 9S7


    65. Johnny Avanti

      The crane is def. a good investment. How much do you rent it out for?

    66. djkremer

      More Pettibone!!!

    67. drose79111

      After Andrew took down the measurements for the steel plate I was assuming he would run to a metal fab shop to get one made. Should have known better...

    68. Jesse Rousseau

      What were those batterys 200 a peace??

      1. Andrew Camarata

        I think 160

    69. Jesse Rousseau
