I believe that the machine pictured is a 750 & not an 802. If you look carefully at the 802 pictured w/ 120 Ft. boom & jib you will see that the cab is slightly longer--note the space between rear cab door & the end of the cab in each picture . I drove piles in NYC for 42 Yrs. & we owned two 802's--I'm quite familiar w/ them. Interesting thing the long boom rig pictured appears in one of the original catalogs for the 802 & in that catalog the load chart says she is a 40 tonner not 50 ton --I have that catalog & one slightly newer where she's a 50 ton machine .
