Since the little woman retired she's found many things she thinks I need to lift around the place.

I decided to be helpful by building her a mini AgCrane on one of HER tractors.  This makes it easy for her to hook up a trailer without finding me to hook it up for her.  

 

Most of it is re-purposed material, saved from remelt to become paperclips.  It's also removable in minutes by taking out 3 bolts.

 

The hydraulic unit was re-purposed from a favored woman device.

 

Lifting capacity with boom extended is 200 pounds, retracted it will pick 400.

Back savers are sure nice!  My FEL on my Massey is my back saver, and I couldn't get by without it!  Good build there Franz!  :thumbs:

Looks like a nice lift.
What did you scavenge the hydraulics from again?

Comon guys 97.348% re-purposed materials, and OCH on the site and nobody figured it out yet.

OK, clue #2

Every one of you has seen a woman employ the device the hydro unit came from at some point in time.  You might have even paid for her using that device.

 

The mast and boom are re-purposed Unistrutt brand telescoping square sign post, often available free of charge at the Highway Dept scrap pile for just the asking.

There's more money tied up in this thing for paint and E70-s6wire than the rest of the materials.

 

Sit back & think guys.  If it's too easy you won't remember.

It looks like the hydrolics from a stair stepper or something, like you might find in a Gym.

My best guess would be the lift from a desk chair.

A desk chair that will lift 400 pounds. Now that is some secretary you got there.
