:wave: Maybe this attachment might help out sombody, or give them another project to produce.

This one is mounted on a Gravely but it looks like it should fit on an sleve hitch.

... but it looks like it should fit on an sleeve hitch. ...


If you look close, you will see that it IS on a sleeve hitch :D

Definitely would be a handy rascal.

How much are they wanting for it?

I know what you mean Kenny, would be handier than sleeve hitch forks (original plan of mine). Talk about moving implements, even if you use a longish chain with a grab hook on it to be able to loop around the item and hook back on itself, then pick up the hitch, holy crap, Kenny.. you could draw me your version of that if you're bored LOL.

Kenny:

Are you putting hardened teeth on the box blade? I have everything I need to build one, just need to get off my lazy butt and get to work.

Well, Ronnie, the metal I am using was the top strap from an Oxy/acet. cart. I tried to straighten the bends in it by hand and couldn't do it. So I guess it is hardened. I even put it down on the 50 lb. block I have and stood on it. Still didn't bend it back any. Took a bit to drill holes for the slots. I had to get out the 4 lb. sledge and straighten it so I could cut the pieces out of it. Definitely better than what you get from Lowes.

Tim, nice looking boom. Bet the winch would come in handy. I made one for my Sears, but it was just a boom, no winch.

:wave: I went back to try to find it but I couldn't find it. :confuse:

I remember seeing that the guy was asking $200.00 for it.

It looks like the poll can be extended for longer reach.

You would think that you would have to have some weight on the front end of the tractor or the front end of the tractor would not be able to turn.
