Boom pole or gin pole( with hydrolic cylinder)
Does anyone know where I can buy a Boom Pole or Gin Pole (3 point hitch) in which the boom pole is hinged up top and the under the hing there is a hydrolic cylinder. This would allow me to raise the pole with the hydrolic cylinder? Or raise the load higher with the hydrolic cylinder? Thanks for your help.

It might not be too hard to take a folding engine hoist, add attachment points for a 3-point and remove the folding legs. Now that I thought of it, I might even try it with mine! I assume you want the fine control of a hand jack hydraulic lift. If all you want is a greater range of motion look for a worn out 3-point auger. They have an upper pole that hooks up directly without using the top link for a greater (even adjustable) range of motion compared to a traditional 3-point boom pole.
Thanks for getting me thinking!
