It's very handy for a cheap price -- $60-70

If you need to do a serious lift like lifting a "BFR" or tug on a stump all the forces are on the rear of the tractor instead of the steer axle and little tires. Plus you can pick a lot more, depending how you hook.

Just another thought you can also use it from your bucket to do weird stuff like hang heavy shed doors or set trusses. See my #8 I also had hoe on for stability.

I would have to say the boom is first thing you need to buy after getting a tractor. How else can you get your 3PT toys out of the pickup or trailer?

Below is picture of one built from 2"x4"x.109thk steel.

Harvey
How are your rops lights wired? (I see you have folding rops? Was wondering how to do that without binding?
Thanks

drcjv it is chained to bucket top both sides. The weight is ALWAYS kept out away from the balance point. LOW RANGE FIRST GEAR LITTLE MORE THAN IDLE.

Longer poles can be made to do this job. I'd have to measure for sure but I think it's about 20 ft to peak.


ba wire runs down inside of rops. I folded rops added a wire sheath finished down to bottom of rops a picked up a spare lighting wire. Each set is switched up at top center with toggles. I rarely ever fold rops but if I do there is plenty of wire and sheath to make the loop.

If you have a fork attachment for your loader there are also booms available that slip on the forks and lock. I've used this kind before to position rocks in landscape building. But be advised, even six inches away from the bucket drastically reduces the FEL lifting capacity and also changes the balance and stability of your tractor for the worse. Always proceed with the greatest caution, especially when adding length (moment) and weight to any implement.
