Many ask about a lift arm or boom to put on their 3pt hitches. Have seen diff ideas.  Was looking at a PK offering and fella on there had easy idea. His lift arm, tho not long, was just a square tube that ran from the frame upper link mount, thru the top of the 3pt frame where the upper arm Did lift, and past it about 2ft or so. He had hook in end for chains or whatever to lift item. That seemed like a neat idea. Wouldn't be for real high lift, but to drag engine around in garage and such or other heavy items would work. Would not be a cumbersome part sticking out in way on tractor as much as the bigger lifts also, could keep it on or be real easy to take off, as easy as the top-link would be.  Might have to try to make one.
