  • Use boom in Pickup like wrecker
  • I needed to go to farm 50 miles away to get pond scoop.
    No tractor at other farm.
    Mounted "Dearborn boom' in pickup box.
    2 X 6 cut to width of box and placed ahead of rear "tie done".
    Boom against 2 X 6".
    Chain to front tie downs.
    "Come along" mounted on boom.
    picked up pond scoop and placed on trailer.
    Dismantateled and hooked up trailer and "Home We Go"
    Next time probably 2" X 4" forced between upper box and 3 point, so tings don't tip.
    Not sure how much "tie down can stand.
    took picture ,but no post because of problem posting.
    Next come along mounted on bomm from old discarded grain auger.

  • I made a mount for my last three trucks so I could have a crane in the bed. Sure comes in handy. Here is a link to the one I got from Northern Tool, had mine since 2005 had to put new seals in it but still works good.
