I have seen enough pics of the HF lifts and others to make me 'build' my own. Yeah, I'm a cheap old fart! But I want something with access to the center of the tractor. I'm nearly 70 years young, don't' need the excess crap they sell. Plus, I'm bored! So today I salvaged some 3/16" X 1-1/2" angle and went to work. Checked all the tractors on the property and found a good set of dimensions. I need to be able to pick up anything with a tread width from 19" to 46". That handles most LT's up to the FF/20's.
I have a HF 1000 lbs lift that I modified for a small cherry picker. That's the lift mechanism. I cut the metal to the right lengths and made a cradle for the tires to set in.
Got to dig out the Hoist and go from there. Stay tuned!
