Maybe a quick sketch will help. It is just a simple frame like ditty that pivots on the end of the cranes boom.

My crane is heavy enough that I can extend the boom but keep the wheels unextended which makes it a bit easier to move around. Moving the thing is its main drawback. I used a setup like this to rock a hip roofed garage ceiling. To do that you need to put a lip on the 2x4 nearest pump handle of the crane upright to keep the drywall from sliding off.
one is not from harbor freight but they sell similar units. I tried to use it to change the front tire on my BX2200 and nearly ruined the tire as the bead wire is now showing in one spot. Had the tire lub etc.
I finally gave up and took the tire to a tire shop. The guy did it on the floor with tire irons. He failed the first time out then put a vice grip on the rim next to the first iron. Then he worked his way around the rim with just one iron.
Thinking maybe the rims and tires are not well matched because I had to cut one of the bead wires on the old tire to get it off.
I have that one sitting in my garage. It worked well for a couple of years until it died. Pressure switch broke. Probably had about 30 hours on it, maybe a bit more. I could probably fix it, but haven't had the time.Quote:
