Had a ton of fun getting this made and using this weekend. I made it just for moving the lockers from storage to home but figured it would come in handy from time to time for other stuff as well. Pretty simple using hardware that is all rated for 1 ton. The boom is raised and lowered with the come a long where as the pto winch is used to lift the load. Forgot to pump up the tires the first time and could barely turn the wheel. 60 psi solved that problem. I had the boom on and had to run out tot he grocery store- it ws dangerous for sure but not because on my part. There were so many double takes from other drivers that I'm sure it would cause an accident.
