    Just remember that you can lift a lot of weight with a fulcrum if it's long enough.

    So, think of that boom pole attached to your FEL as a fulcrum trying to lift the rear end of your tractor off the ground. When you add weight to the end of the boom pole, it might not take a lot to lever the rear end off the ground.

    Well tried the 12', could lift it with the boom ok but couldn't curl. Almost would do it, I think if the hyd relief valve was set a 100psi higher it would of done it. So it looks like I well have to use the 8' to put it up on the deck then hook the 12' to go the rest of the way up. Then I well be lifting only 1/2 the weight and pushing the rest of the way up.
    The last picture is a bucket I picked up for $160.00 and making some changes to it for when it's time to go get fire wood.

    Looks like a nice score on the bucket ...
