But there is a radiator, and starter crank on the front , and a differential underneath in the back.

I guess that Scholpp just rents those, not make 'em.
The ladder at the front may mean that the configuration is part of the set-up and lets the driver go work the crane.
Or he messed up and had to be rescued.

The crane is in proper working position.

The outriggers are both on stacks of cribbing, and it's merely cosmetically unusual for the cab to the elevated this way.

I think the place the crane had to be to lift the load defined the parking spot. Turns out it wasn't flat or level, so they leveled the crane so it could do its job.

So you're saying the crane is balancing on 2 & 2 with nothing to stabilize the front end up in the air? There must be outriggers at the back end also.

Sure there are, I wasn't very clear in my post on that point, sorry.

You can see the red and white diagonal striped arm of the right rear outrigger just to the left of the cribbing under the right front outrigger.

Yes, definitely four outriggers

Oh for Christ sake, I was looking right at the red and white stripe outrigger sticking out of the rear to our left and it didn't register... duh.

The idea seems to be to put the load directly under the end of the hoist so that that huge hydraulic lift can do its best.

Those outriggers still make a tiny footprint around the Vespa.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that, outriggers or no, that is going to be less than steady in the best of conditions.

Ford vs. Vespa

There was an IOTD with another rickety approach a few years back.
