  • Need to know!
  • I feel silly posting here butů.I am looking to find a name for the gizmo that attaches to the three point hotch which allows me to lift something heavy and move it around. I have seen them on here periodically and am looking for one but need to know the name and if they are still made. Dave

  • DED - Where are you located? I think I may have an extra I would part with - for a very reasonable fee!

  • You will be hard pressed to buy the steel to make one for what you can buy one new.
    Also, it is very common for guys to way over build them. It will be heavy and you will hate having to put it on/off your tractor.
    I have had this cheap King Kutter boom pole for 20 years.
    It weighs about 80 lbs and is all you you want to wrassel onto your tractor alone.
    For some reason I can't hot link any more so you'll hafta

  • What are you looking to move?

    If rocks, gravel, dirt, mulch, etc., a 3-point scoop would work.

    Carry-alls are relatively inexpensive and can be enhanced with lumber.

    Pallet forks work on more than just pallets:

  • The nice thing about pallet forks is that you can make a nice wooden box on a pallet and have a carry-all. BTDT

  • Re: Need to know!
  • Carry all or Pallet Forks.
    Pick one.
    Google it and see what you get.
    I have pallet forks front and rear, on an Orange Interloper.

  • Thanks Bruce. That is what I am talking about. Are they still made? Does anyone have plans for making one? Dave

  • If you should want a straight pole, this one worked fine for me.

    Sold it but believe I saved dimensions.
