    Default Backhoe - Trailer Receiver Hitch & Boom Pole

    Here is a Saturday project I dreamed up for lack of something better to do. The mud here is REALLY bad so can't do much outside on the homestead so I worked in the shop on this project. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Please see all the attachments for the complete project.

    The advantage of having a receiver hitch to the backhoe is that I can make a varity of attachments for it. The possibilities are endless. So Here is the fabrication process for the boom pole.

    OK so next question is what is this guy thinking?

    I need to get wood into my huge house to keep my wife and I warm by the fire.

    The main floor of the house is about 5 feet above grade level so there are stairs to carry the wood up. My knees are giving out so this is the mother of all inventions for me. This is a pic of the boom pole lifting up the wood for me up to the back porch.
