Well now I'm sure that would work and lift the 100 lbs claimed.
I'd just get tired of carrying around a scale to be sure anything I lifted did not exceed the raitng.
Besides that's nothing new, My brother when 14 extended the forks on his bicycle 36" with thinwall conduit. Still has the scars to prove it.

That's funny and sad at the same time. I'm thinking just lifting the bucket a few times will rip the bottom out of the foot well where it's mounted.

The geometry on the lift is all wrong. that top bar is coming forward with any significant lift.

The whole thing just looks wrong. I see he used 3/8 steel to connect the mount to the 16(maybe) gauge deck. The winch is in the middle of the top bar at the weakest point.

Well, I guess it's a pretty nice shade of yellow. Also, when it breaks it will provide some usable scrap metal and a winch.

Now that is SCARY.

I don't think that something like that would even be safe on a pedal tractor.

I just hope that the guy that built and is actually using that has a VERY good insurance policy.

Yeah, anything with flimsy footrests that you can bolt it to.
