I think he could have moved it to the back of the trailer another 2" or so lol. Maybe it isn't a portable hoist? Maybe they are trying to make a catapult  :D

As for the first picture, it appears that he is out in a field, correct? A field with groundhog holes, rocks, non-smooth terain. When that motor starts swinging while he is transporting, do you think the trailer will roll over?
 
For the second picture, it appears that the planning or idea came from an episode of "The Red/Green Show". I guess it's a good concept, but I don't think I'd want to be mowing towards the wind with that discharge set up. You'd look like a grasshopper until you were done mowing!

Mounted behind the axle, long boom and several hundred lbs hanging on the boom? I'd be surprized if he could do anything but lift the whells on the tow vehicle?

I think it's assume. I can't count the number of times I needed to move an engine across an open field.
