The Tractor Supply Company, TSC (Countyline) boom pole was on-sale this week, so I picked one up. This boom-pole is their light-duty model(500 Lb. CAP on the end loop, 1000 Lb.CAP on the lower loop).
Today, I added a section of 2" ID receiver tubing to mount a winch.
Below is the winch I bought a couple weeks age. This winch is equipped with a remote control, and also came with the roller fairlead.
I made up a section of 2' OD tubing to slide into a receiver tubing. This is all made of scrap pieces I had laying about.
I bought a winch mounting plate today and attached the winch to the tubing. The winch plate was on-sale for $4.99.
Below is the piece of 2" ID receiver tubing slide over and pinned to the section I made up.
I welded the piece of 2" ID receiver tubing to the bottom of the boom-pole frame(red primer).
Here, you can see a 20K snatch-block shackled to the pole loop.
I need to run a power cable, from the battery, to the back of the tractor. I'm waiting for some Anderson Power Connector to arrive for that.
I'm going to also add a section of 2" ID tubing to the front of my utility trailers. The winch will be able to be switched from trailer, to boom-pole, to trailer, to whatever.
