Yeah, I already thinking of what I can do with those. Maybe a neat extended frame C-cab with gin poles?

I made an accessory for the boom pole today. I wanted something that would let me lift the front of a tractor without rubbing the sheet metal. So this is what I came up with. It will also be good for those wider objects.

This also makes a good 3 point lifting system that is spread enough to keep things from being floppy back there! Got some things to move around, have to take the camera with me!

Looks great. I've thought about building something like yours. For the little things like moving engines from the back of the truck to the shop. I think I'd use it all the time.

I have an Onan to pull, then move old tractor out of the way & move the other FF in for the transplant.

I like it Kenny.

Nicely done, and the great thing about it, is that it isn't covered

in safety decals.

Could be. Thinking on that one!

Nor any safety switches. :bigrofl:

 

Hope to try it out today. I got a couple to move around, before the engine gets pulled. Give me a chance to see what it will lift.

in safety decals.


Safety decals should be none existent in most cases. That's nature's way of getting rid of stupid.

We were using a dump trailer this weekend and like everything else I do my 7yo was all up in my way. We are standing by the next lowering the bed and taking. He points to a sticker on the side that shows a crushing hazard. He ask me why it was there and said that people should know not to crawl on a trailer when your lowering the bed. I thought it was funny a 7yo who had never been around this specific piece of equipment had the common sense to know what can hurt you and what can't.

Nice job Kenny!

You can also consider mounting a small hand winch like for boats on there somewhere with a pulley up top.
