I drive my tractors up on my trailer and work on them, at least I am not bending over so much.

That's a great idea using a spreader bar and the wheel lift. I built a gantry crane years ago and always have just hooked onto the tractors with a sling wrapped around some part of the frame. The tire lift frame is perfect! That would give me a place for jackstands outside of the tractor, so more room under the tractor.

 

Thanks Kenny!

Kenny, that's a great lift, now let me ask, isn't it in the way for working under the front areas of the tractor? Not picking, I like it, just trying to understand.

About all it would be in the way of is the axle area. If work was needed there, raise it up and support elsewhere to get to the axle!

Ok, from the picture it looked like it covered back a ways. Great job!
