I don't weld, so I used the frame from a scrap 822 syracuse chilled hillside plow and the main frame of a 100 year old spike harrow to build my Tractor Boom Pole...a chunk of chain a few bolts I had kicking around and I have a three point hitch pole boom....yehhh. I just tested it by picking up the old manure trip bucket with the Power King.

Hoot man! Very good job using on hand materials, that's why we save those pieces. :fing32: What do you estimate for lifting capacity?

Great way to do some heavy duty recycling! As a fellow non welder I really like to see projects like this.:fing32:

Will lift the limit of tractor without adding weight to the front besides the weights on the front tires as my front tires started to lift when I tried to lift my potato digger...estimated weight of that is 7-8 hundred pounds. Didnt bother the pole boom. I was outside the tractor with my hand on the hydraulic lever as "SAFETY FIRST".

Looks good Lawn Boy. My telescoping boom pole was about the handiest thing I owned before I got a loader. I made mine something like this design. You just replace the top link with the boom. They sell this one on eBay for a couple hundred bucks without the hitch adapter.
