    Boom Pole Mod

    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.

    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.

    Hot damn!!!

    Watching real close on what ya doing there FW.

    Didn't pick up the winch today, looked up the specs. on it and the $69 one was crap.
    5% duty cycle with 165 amp draw at max pull.
    Looks like I'm going to have to go with a bigger one $160 to get more acceptable specs.

    Pretty much how I'm going to mount the winch on mine, will also add retractable spuds (like stabilizer legs on a backhoe) so
    I can just hookup and unhook to it at the right height for the tractor.
    Putting it on cement blocks seems too redneck.

    Ooooooooo! I have the TSC heavy duty boom pole and I already have a winch mounted on the back of my tractor. I should go get myself a pulley to hang off mine. Had never thought about using it in conjunction with the winch!

    Are you considering a winch for the ZT? You could save BC a lot of time if you winched yourself out instead of having her pull you out.

    Don't be so against a smaller winch my friend.
    Technically you have only a 1000 capacity at mid and 500 at end loops according to boom specs.
    You can run the single winch line up to a sheave hanging from loop, then down to another single sheave with a hook attached, then back up to boom loop. That gives you a two part line on the hook and basically doubles you lifting capacity with a smaller winch. Makes it work half as hard as well.
