    New Boom for OMNI Transformer Hitch

    Hello friends! After months of planning and a good dose of procrastination we have finally completed our Boom attachment. It comes as a response to many customers requests for an attachment that moves the lifting point further back from the tractor for log lifting etc. It works well with our Skidder Plate or we can build an insert for the horizontal receiver to keep the log from banging into your tractor or the Transformer. We have used it here at our shop and it has quickly become one of our favorites because it can be used to lift/tow almost anything your tractors hydraulics can handle.

    As usual we overbuilt it. Two pieces of 1/2 x 2 1/2 flat laminated together and welded to a 2 x 2 x 1/4 tube that inserts into the vertical receiver on our Transformer and Combo Hitches. We are still having problems uploading pictures but you can find it on our website here:

    OMNI Logging Boom - OMNI Mfg LLC

    It works very similar to the log hog:

    With the gross weight, horse power, 3pt lift capacity I have to work with I have had good luck with this homemade set up.
    The picture shows the sub soil tool and middle buster. With the orange arm I only lift logs. I pull with a chain on the tractors fixed draw bar.
    Good luck

    I only saw the one picture on your link with the first post. I tried looking around for others but was unsuccessful in finding any others. Maybe I am just missing something. The one picture was small as well. That is why I was asking for more pics.
