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:

It works very similar to the log hog:
