 Archdean's Manlift?

Archdean, I was looking at your pictures of your B7510 with what appears to be a man lift attached to the bucket. I have a B7510 with FEL & that would be really helpful for tree trimming. Is it home built, and how safe do you feel when you are in it?

I also like the looks of your manlift. Is it wood, or steel?

There was a discussion of it titled 'Front End Loader Hitch Ball and Platform combination Project!' Do a search on that and see if it doesn't answer your questions.

The big problem with any of those sorts of devices is that the front axle on a tractor pivots.

The only stability you have is the rigid rear axle, the same one you're taking the weight OFF of by putting a big load out in front of the bucket.

A tractor is also relatively narrow.

Let the SOPPF ("seat of pants pucker factor"Wink yeah right strictly govern any use of such a device.

Best of luck.
