I have been to at least 4 TSC places and they only have a boom pole which does not match the web page and it is only CAT1. The pins are welded in.  The one on the web page does CAT 1 limited and allows you to change the pins out.  I have 2 TSC trying to order the one on the web page. We will see if they can get one in.

 

A friend helped me unload my box blade out of my truck down a ramp. We just kind of let it slide down the ramps. It would have been nice to use a boom pole

I built mine.

 

I like your home made boom pole.  How did you make the joint at the top link?  It looks like you have a square pipe joined to a round pipe.  Are they just welded in the side plates?

Here ya go! The bottom angle is 3X3X3/16. 2X2 square riser, 2" pipe arm. The center (of the 3) hole is 12" up from the lower links. I usually use the top hole as that lets it lift higher. They are spaced 2" apart.

I cut the top of the 2X2 square at 30° and welded the pipe on. The pipe is 3' long.

Your pictures make it look straight forward.  I may have to build one if TSC does not come through.

If you want to lift stuff off the truck you might find it beneficial to make the mast end taller with a bend like the TSC one.  Not going to reach over a truck bed with a straight one.

I am kind of thinking the same thing.  Hopefully TSC can find me one.

One thing to remember, the PK's sit higher than a normal GT. If you play with the top link mount, it will rotate more as you lift. The higher you put that top hole, the more it goes up. My issue is getting this down low enough for some things.

That's why in one of my earlier posts I proposed a winch for it.

A wench would be nice since it would keep the pole low to the truck.  Plus it would give you more lifting and lowering distance than the hydraulics.  I can use a 5 part tackle but the pole will need to be higher to have the 5 part tackle under the pole.
