Mine is a CornPro and the whole end lifts up or down. The few times I use my handy man jack. That looks like a finger cutter offer instead of a pincher! What about an oval cut out for hands in the diamond plate to lift or lower to save fingers?

Am I the only one woundering how you got the 9/16 rod through that 1/2 pipe?

If it is 1/2 inch schedule 40 it should be about .622 inches and 9/16 = .5625.

Everything would have to be pretty straight and the weld seam might be in the way.

I considered that but the owner mainly hauls hay on it and said he would rarely put it down. If it comes back I will offer that but he didn't seem concerned with it. The old one had slots like you would stick a chain in but it rotted out around them really bad and I don't think you'd have had any luck pulling on them that way, just would have had a chunk hanging on the end of the .

It is a very nice fit for this application. You would think 1/2" rod and half inch pipe would go together but they don't. This is nice slip fit, just enough room to spray it with chain lube or lithium grease. If you cut the pipe with a pipe cutter you will need a reamer to clean the burr out of the ends or the rod won't go in.

I use DOM tubing and the appropriate round bar if I am doing bigger stuff, or stuff that needs to be very precise, but for general use this combo works nicely.

Those tolerances were something I did not know.

Always learning here
