    I like that boom rig you got. Simple but effective.

    That's impressive! What kind of house are you building? Brings back memories of building mine.

    Thanks. Just two pieces of 1 1/4" pipe sitting against the back of the bucket, guyed with chains and bolted together at the top with a hook. The chains go through two D rings and are held together with a binder. This will lift anything the tractor can.


    I bought a steel building and roof. But it will be finished out as a two bedroom, two bath house and four car garage/shop with solar and radiant heating throughout. The rear concrete area is a covered porch. It's a fun project but slow going. The roof framing and sheathing goe on next week! Thanks for the comment.

    Here are a some more pix.

    Since my tractor is mostly 'hobby' and fun I have used it for:
    snow plowing
    gravel spreading & grading of the driveway
    brush clearing of part of woods
    trenching for underground wiring

    This week I will bring it to a small commercial building I own where 'neighbors' have left large pieces of furniture & mattresses by my dumpster. The dumpster is way to high to try to manually lift this crap into it, so with a set of Bradco forks I expect to clean everything up.

    I've used my tractor(s) in just about every conceivable manner since I got them.
    It might be easier for me to list what I haven't used the tractors for. On second thought, that list would be just as long. Seriously though, they have been work horses. I would never have completed some of the projects like some of you guys did without the tractor. I couldn't imagine how hard that must have been!

    "What I have done WRONG with my tractor" is, put too much trust in the go-kart style parking brake.
