We use the 165 with the boom pole for that reason, that and the 35's hydraulics drift down pretty quick when you shut it down.
Nice to see another one of Harry's Girls working still.

Does the gt spin around like a top on there?
I think maybe i should make up a small dolly / trailer.
I can't see how you hooked on the the gt. did you use a sling?

This doesn't work on Case brand garden tractors because they don't have a metal foundation inside the steering wheel. For such a well built machine they sure have whimpy wheel.
Guess how I know that?

I don't care for how this pole is made but it was included with the tractor purchase. One of these days I'll find a different one at auction and will give it a try. This one just uses a chain for the top link and that gives it much more adjustment than a solid top link but I have to be really careful because if I hook the chain to short the boom will get over center when the 3pt is raised. Luckily the first time I did that I was standing beside the tractor and not sitting on the seat. The pole broke a small chunk out of the steering wheel when it hit but at least my noggin was out of range.
