Has anyone ever use a 3pt. boom pole to lift their mmm deck into a vertical position for blade removal or service. I have a large frame 855 utility tractor, but right now I don't have a way of lifting that 475 pound mid mower deck for service. My thought is that a boom pole would work, and it's an attachment I can use for other situations. :munch:

I've always used my loader, but no reason a boom pole wouldn't work great for lifting your mower.

I used a gin pole attached to my fabrication table (it's 1100# and on wheels) to raise the runway beams into place for my bridge crane. They were 800# each, and it was an easy one-man job with that contraption using a 1T chain fall hoist on the top of the pole.

When it comes time to raise rafters again, I'll be rigging up another one off the tractor.

Me too but a boom pole should work.

Before I got the FEL, I always used the 3pt boom pole when servicing the mower deck. Worked great!!! Now I use the FEL.

My wife's uncle has never had a FEL, always uses a boom pole or 3PH dirt scoop depending on the task.

I used to before I bought the 790 w/300 loader, now it's part of the loader boom: FARM 042.jpg

That is an awesome idea for a loader mount boom pole. I could see that in the artillian line up.
That was the reason I bought the Artillian 3-pt adapter. I hang a large (4'x4'x4') canvas bag off my boom on the loader and I can load 4 (small) bales of hay in it and lift it right to to the 2nd floor door on my garage. I don't know that I'd want to get crazy with weight hanging out that far but for fairly light items it works pretty well.

Ok, I will bite. What is the big tube for??????

Dave
The house sets below the level of the main sewerline at the street.
The tube is for the sewage lift pump system.
