I'm sure there are at least a couple of us that has built a boom pole (gin pole) for their GT. I'd like to build one for my sears SS12 with the 3 pt.

I measured the one Dad use with his TO35 and MF165, the pins measure 24" apart and on my Sears, they're 12" apart... So should I scale this half size?

If anyone has a pic of the one they built, I'd appreciate any ideas that you don't mind me stealing.

BTW, KennyP gave me the interrest to start thinking about this again.

I am anxious to see this progress as I have often thought about building something for the Massey 1655 for the 3pt.

Now you make me think !!! I have a electric lift for wheelchair , have had it mounted on the 4 wheeler to help lift deer, Now it just might find its way to the back of GT.

Not sure on the weight capacity, at least "more than I can". Haven't taken any pics after putting the cylinder on, need to. ~~ grnspot

Plant the idea, they will build. Borrowing my idea, eh? Okay. I'll just sit back and let you all get it figured out and I won't use that many brain cells when I do mine.

Someone took a lot of time on that. They may only get to use it once a year, but that may be the only tool for the job. :D

A boom pole or hog hanger as they are known around here might just be my next project. I thought about it the other day that it would be a handy attachment to have.

I plan on maing a copy of one I saw on a bigger tractor.

One end mounts where the top link attaches to the tractor, then it connects where the top link would on A frame, but extends further back.
