Many thoughts, but the hand lift makes it in the KISS area. Not sure if I can get the point across here, but I'll try. Make up a small trailer frame type thingy. Behind the axle put a couple arms that go under the axle of what you want picked up. Use it similar to what is used to lift a motorcyle rear wheel and attach to the tractor.

I don't want to hyjack this thread,,, But,,,  is there anyway to put a door  or  gate hinge on the tow pin ,, and have a channel stock welded to the hinge,, and let a  sleeve hitch lift it.??

 

    I run into ,,sometimes I need to tow a log and the nose drags into the ground.. this would at least pick the front of the log up a few inches and thus,, less drag.. and grooves in the lawn..??

With the log, a log arch is best IMO

I get it. This sounds like the things that HF sales for moving a trailer around by hand. Roll it under the axle, push down on the tongue and it lifts the front of the tractor and then hook it to your pulling tractor. Couldn't be simpler. Get a couple of cheap wheels and a stick of square tubing and you're in business.
