    Lets see your Home Made Boom Poles and ideas.

    Currently I'm undecided if I want to buy one like TSC has, or go something like a piece of 1/4" wall square tubing, and tie it to the top link with another tool.
    Show me your ideas and what's worked for you.

    Hmmm . . . they might have ideas that could be adapted to your tractor

    As requested I will not post a picture of my solution as I have a 1-family tractor

    Good luck with your search

    I wasn't actually feeling good when I posted the topic, and I did reconsider (just wasn't able to edit) my not wanting the 1&2 family tractors to respond.
    I'm open to seeing and hearing about any home made boom poles people care to share.

    I just bought the tractor supply one. It works great. I couldn't fabricate one for the price.

    If I could buy the one pictured on their website, I would. Apparently the WA stores stock the Behlen brand, which is not the one I want. The one displayed on their website is Tarter, with two top-link connections. Yesterday I called a TSC about 60 miles away to see if they had the Tarter model in stock. I explained to the clerk "specifically" that I wanted the one displayed on the TSC website. He confirmed that's what they had. Given that, I told him to put my name on it, and I'd make the drive. When I got there, it wasn't the Tarter model, it was the Behlen model. I was pissed.

    So the manager stepped in and talked to (supposedly) the right people within to get me the Tarter brand delivered to my local store. Fingers are crossed it pans out. I needed it 3 weeks ago.

    First thing this morning, I got a call from Drew @ TSC-Customer Solutions. He was on top of this mess.
    He confirmed again, that Washington TSC Stores, stock Behlen Country Implements. He also confirmed the Boom Poles on their website were Tarter.

    He told me the Tarter model was getting sent, and it would arrive at our local store.
    For the hassles, he discounted it $20 to $129.00.

    Now the waiting game.

    I've got the Tarter model, it works great for me, hopefully it will for you too. And $20 off is a nice plus!

    The ole boom pole was scheduled to arrive at the local TSC yesterday. I been watching, as it made it's way from Kentucky to WA. What, with all the times it's been loaded/unloaded, then lost.

    Edit,
    I got an email right after posting, saying it arrived. It's sitting on the floor in my shop.
