I also have a 10' insert out of 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" tube that I can use for a extension. This will easily pick up a 800lb 20+ft long power pole. The tractor will pick it up but will not curl it, so I have to be careful not to overload the curl,rollback cylinders. It was only about 4 hours to build, took longer to prep,prime and paint than it did to build. About $300 in steel and $75 for paint,hook and chain. CJ

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: Nice design. Nice job. Don't see much flex when you raised your tractor with it.

Thanks, it was not designed to handle a load in that direction but I figured if it would do that it should be good to lift just about anything my tractor or skid steer could handle. CJ

Does not look like it would need an extention. How long is it without one? Nice job

14' but Rustyiron gave me a great tip on the other boom pole thread as far as shoveling the polebarn roof!! If/when the roof slides it is dangerous, on the ground in the tractor it would be no worry. And a heated cab to boot. CJ

Nice! You could set trusses with that thing. My dealer has one similar to load/unload small implements like tillers, box blades, finish mowers, ect.
