    Clever thinking and nice implementation.

    Would also make a good fishing pole if you had a problem with very large fish pulling you in all the time.

    Nice job, and very timely for me. RonJHall and I were just talking yesterday about doing something similar to my FEL. After beefingup the top of my bucket, I'm thinking of welding some 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 for a reciever for a ball mount/boompole combination. How much weight do you think the pole will handle?

    Hey, I've got a Malamut myself, without checking other parts, it looks like you've got a female too. How's she do in the heat down your way? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    The Boom Pole I used is about 4 feet long and is the thin wall (1/8" thick) the one pictured is for light duty ~ 200 lbs max.
    Because of leverage and length on a backhoe it would not handle much more weight without exceeding the capacity of the backhoe.

    A FEL is a different story - if you use the thick 1/4" 2"x2" tube for the boom pole id say about 6 ' long max you could lift about 600 lbs without bending the pole.
    However keep in mind that because of leverage the force on the receiver tube is going to be multiplied by the length & weight of the boom pole ie 6' x600 lbs = 3600 lbs of bending force at the receiver. So in this case shorter is better. The horizontal pulling capacity would easily exceed 5000 lbs.

    The Malamutes we have 3 of them 2 Males 1 Female they actually do pretty well we are at 7000' elevation so it does not get that hot up here in the foothills of the Manzano Mountains.
    Winter seems to last 6 monts gets very cold at night and we do get a fair amount of snow.

    I think this is what you are asking about - below is a link to another one of my projects it is a Backhoe "Thumb".

    Guglio; Thanks for the info. All I "plan" on using the boompole for will be lifting trusses no more than a couple hundred pounds max. But the ballmount will be used for logs and whatever else. Again, good job, and good idea. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
