Finished welding the New Boom this morning and testd it. Lifted that truck again but with the Boom instead. Figure now I have better than a 3 to 1 saftey factor since it is going to be rated for 1,000 lbs when done. Not sure what it would take to bust it but no Cat 1 tractor will be able to since I had to put a 2 TON FLOOR JACK under the Hitch to get the front wheels on the tractor down and the load up. The load was 6 ft back from the drag link ends away from the rear wheels. Mark H.

I was planing on selling some, but not tring to make a living off doing them. That is why all the testing on it first. I probley would not worry if it was just for me if it bent put some more steel in it. I also have 2 booms of my own I made a while back and they get used a lot. Mark H.

It is and I wish I knew the Specs for lifting with it. Guess Massey 135 knew how to build them right in 1969. Mark H.
