OK, Still have to make it pretty, but now it's functional. These discs weigh 50 lbs + the (2) 40 lb weights on top. 130 lbs was more than I wanted to carry that far.The adjustable hook point is nice. Allows me to move heavier stuff closer & also allows me to adjust in relation to where I parked.


That is Impressive! Looked like there was a reasonably small amount of effort required to lift that 130 Lbs. Top notch!
BTW, if you ground some extra when you were putting her back in gear, I could use a pound too LOL! :poke:

Is that because of all the times I've heard that Wheel Horse making shrapnel while you were on her?

Image002.jpg Okay, got some time and decent weather to mock up my version, thanks to JD DANNELS for his ideas. Looking for whether this may/may not work. NOT going to extend boom, swivel, or pick up 1000lbs. Just need to pickup engine out of this tractor and get it to a workbench at this point. Give me some pointers.

From the looks of the rear of that tractor, it's ready to work. Just keep the rubber side down. LOL

Kenny,
I think your mock up would work. Definitely should pick an engine pretty easily as long as everything is disconnected before lifting LOL. <see funny tool definitions thread>

I think you will bend the flat stock on the hitch before making the front end too light on the tractor. Maybe add two pieces of angle iron to the underside of the flat stock? I know it is pretty thick, judging by the picture I am guessing 1/2". You could always try it with a lighter load and see if it flexes. You can always add stiffeners later.
